Students who study our Illustrating Children’s Books Online Art Course are often set the task of creating pen and ink illustrations in a particular format around a poem. The poem is called ‘When all is Dark’ and we find that it fires the imagination of our students.
Tutor Maggy Roberts receives numerous illustrations on this theme and each student produces unique concepts, with an abundance of hair raising designs!
The illustration below was created and designed by Alice Herbert (Keziah Herbert) and we love all of the different elements she has created here. From the ghost coming through the door which houses the poem, to the lit torch shining on the jack-in-the box to the little faces under the boys bed. There is so much to see, children would be inthralled if they saw this in a story book.
