Cat Clowder

 

 

 

Sketches of cats auditioning for Mrs Puff - Ada Lovelace's cat.

In case you're wondering, yellow-coloured cats really do exist, although they are in the minority. I have only ever seen one—the mother of my tabby cat, Luna, was the most amazing colour yellow.

Garb Choice

 

 

When it comes to creating a character, accessories are key and interestingly enough, sometimes you don't always get to choose what they wear—the character does!

Ada Lovelace

 

 

Currently, I'm following a 5-week, online, illustrating children's books course.

After one week of research, sketching and and painting, here is a sneak peek of my character study of Ada Lovelace.

Isn't imagination a weird and wonderful phenomena? I was quite surprised, upon finishing, to find that my 18th century character had sneakily updated herself and become a young woman of the 21st century.

Fun fact: 11 October is Ada Lovelace Day - celebrating the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths.
