Childrens Illustration Student Story…

Paul Rathborne has now completed the children’s illustration diploma course and we have showcased a few of his pieces below. He has very kindly written us a short paragraph about his work too. We wish Paul all the best with his children’s book.

Before beginning the Illustrating Children’s Books course, I didn’t have any formal training or qualifications in art or design. I needed a purpose and direction for my aimless doodles, and a genuine reason for getting marker pen stains on the sofa and paint spots on the conservatory floor to tell my girlfriend. My course tutor, Jan Nesbitt, has given me the confidence, guidance and focus to enable me to experiment with new mediums. Each assignment has offered new challenges and I have found this very rewarding. The skills developed on this course have inspired me to begin work on my own children’s book.
