This illustrated print is from a collection which depicts an accurate, quirky and amusing view of special places in Scotland and England. There are 16 titles in the range and they are all signed. This one is of the East Neuk of Fife in Scotland

I am often asked ‘what is it made from?’
The answer is scratchboard/ scraperboard. It starts out life as a black board which is made up of a thin layer of white China clay that is coated with black India ink. I scrape through the black layer creating the image.

When I start the illustration I begin with a visit to the location where I spend a long time looking, drawing and photographing. I am looking at both the buildings and environment and in particular the people, what they are doing and the stories being played out in front of me. I love people watching, trying to imagine what is going on and this gives me a perfect excuse to do so!
I then look at all of the reference material and draw the layout~ in my wibbly wobbly way of course!
I start scratching in the buildings first and then gradually the people and the narrative evolves. I hope the viewer looks at the finished illustration the way it has been created~ seeing the buildings and layout first and then gradually the details and stories….. the more you look the more you see!! Look out for Angus the west highland terrier!
