Last weekend I travelled over to Toowoomba to take part in a one day Picture Book workshop with author/illustrator Katherine Battersby. Katherine is the creator of the adorable little Squish Rabbit picture book series, and as I could relate to creating cute little characters I knew this would be a workshop truly inspiring.
Katherine had put the day together very well. She covered topics of the history of children’s books, and creating your own ideas into picture books from the initial idea/brainstorm all the way through to interacting with publishers.
So I was very grateful to learn a lot from the workshop to help me along my way. My above little possum with his sketchbook emerged on my lunchbreak as I was getting motivated and inspired through the day.
