Drawing Inspiration from Scratch
Company: National Arts Festival
This talk will focus on the work that Lauren Fowler produces, the pros and cons of being a freelance illustrator and how to capture the majestic unicorn that is inspiration. Fowler is the illustrator of the children’s book, Florence and Watson and the Sugarbush Mouse and will show the process on this. She is currently working on the next book, The Great Pangolin Mystery, which is also the children’s play that she designed that will be on the programme at this year’s Festival.
