So after a very busy few weeks I found myself with an unexpected weekend free of work or other demands on my attention, and been as the weather is pretty miserable what better time I thought, than to catch up on one of the fun topics set by @Daily__Doodle over on twitter ... So having drawn a lot of tigers recently, more on that in a mo, I was definitely keen to have a go at The Tiger who Came to Tea. It's always been one of my absolute favourite books anyway ... Here's my take ...
He's enjoying rather a High Tea i think, definitely been drawing some inspiration from some of the fancier tea rooms around Oxford.
So tigers, that leads me to an exciting bit of news - I was super pleased to be asked by Springboard Stories to illustrate the book for their upcoming issue on 'Traders' which just so happened to combine lots of things that i absolutely love (tigers, knitting, India) so it was a pleasure to accept.
Here's the cover which was posted over on their facebook page last week and I'm really looking forward to being able to share more!
