Pitter and Patter, Best Friends!

 Pitter and Patter are best friends. They're also raindrops. When I first read this manuscript I fell in love with Pitter and Patter. At the same time I wondered how I would illustrate the book when the main characters are two rain drops who fall from the same cloud, get separated and finally meet again in the ocean. You can find out more about Pitter and Patter at: https://dawnpub.com/our-books/pitter-and-patter/


 Thanks for taking a look. You can see more about Pitter and Patter and other books at my Studio With A View.

Themed art: Tree


Some trees drawn for a pop-up promotion a while ago to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Japanese sticky tape company Nichiban. These were all pop-up flaps. It was a fun project, and there were fairies!

Into the Unknown


A watercolour study from "The Light in the Forest" series
by Stephen Aitken
This is an exploration of a theme, more of a fine art study than an illustration for a particular children's book project. However, all study eventually ends up back in our art, doesn't it?
