page for East of SunSteadily working through the day, adding detail and thinking. In the picture above there is a red squirrel, a pine martin, a tawny owl, a rook, a tree-creeper and two pheasants. Oh, and a wolf.

Only two double spreads, title page and small details to do now and then this will be finished. The small paintings punctuate the pages.

About Jackie

I am an artist and writer. I live in a small house by the sea in Wales where I write, paint, walk and watch and dream of bears and whales. I love to read, have a wish for wings and prefer the company of animals to that of humans, though at times I can be quite friendly. I am learning how to work with wood engraving tools and hoping to show that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

  1. What a lot of progress. The details in the ‘small’ drawings are intriguing with their snippets of script. What book is this being rvealed? I’m curious for the whole story now.

  2. These are beautiful, the trees reminded me of walking through the forest near my husband’s grandparent’s farm in Finland. I love the way more and more things are revealed as you continue to look.

      Thanks Saviour. Think I will do a blog post going through my 30 years as an illustrator in response to this and the email I had today about becoming an illustrator.
