TAP is a children's book (currently unpublished) which I have written and illustrated for my final major at Swansea College of Art. It's all about a little woodpecker, named Tap, who wants nothing more than to sing with the other birds in the annual carnival. I hope for the book to encourage and celebrate difference and individuality in a colourful way.
I thought I would be interesting to spice things up and make a little behind-the-scenes process video of one of my recent illustrations. My illustration process changed a lot for this brief, I allowed myself to be a lot more experimental with collage, paint and digital media.
