As an aspiring picturebook author and illustrator, drawing children and people is essential. Thus, today I decided to push myself and draw a child and their sidekick: specifically, myself as a child playing with my childhood pet, Tasco. I used to only want to wear my purple dress, so it felt appropriate!
I have a very clear memory of playing with Tasco in the garden and sitting beside the pond and looking in; only to have her almost leap in the pond, she was so determined to be included!
This piece was fun experimentation for me! I am very pleased with how the shadows in the water turned out!
