On Saturday I went to another great talk by Mark Carthew to learn further about his picture book creativity. It was a wonderful event with a High Tea afterwards where I conversed with other authors and editors. It put me on a height of inspiration afterwards.
So what does this have to do with my fishy illustration you ask? Well, one thing Mark likes his illustrators to do is put hidden things in each illustration so there are always new things to find every time a kid picks up the book. I have for awhile been playing around with the idea of ‘Where’s Fishy?’, an aquarium version of Where’s Wally. So whilst on the topic of hidden things I thought I would try a little illustration of this to see what you think?
Can you find Fishy?
