Where the ideas come from


Sketches for a character for a children magazine

My ideas are always born on pages of my sketchbooks. In the moment I have eight sketchbooks: tiny one  for quick sketches, a couple of bigger ones  for work related sketching, a giant one (A3) for brainstorming and a couple of handmade ones with lovely paper for watercolours and pencils. I can’t walk out my house without carrying pencil and sketchbook. You never know when the idea will come, so I write down every single one and draw a sketch next to it. It’s how ‘Jelly Jumble’ was born, it’s how I’ve written 15 episodes for preschool TV show ‘Yoko’ and it’s where currently are many more waiting to be made into things!
