The author of famous children's books like ' Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', ' Matilda' and ' James and the Giant Peach' has made storytime more fun for almost a whole century! Description from tidy-books.co.uk. I searched for this on bing.com/images
I like this sketchbook due to the dark colours in the background and the technique used to do this. The background is completely filled using paint in layers. The dark browns and reds make a background for the writtten work - these colours are roughly joined with cool colours which make a detailed water and boat scene. I like the way the writing becomes part of he painting. . The overall effect is breathtaking.
Observe the magical brilliance of Jackie Morris. She likes cats, Bjork, the madness of nursery rhymes and Blade Runner (obviously - who doesn't?). Not only is she an amazingly talented artist, but she's illustrated books for Ted Hughes, Mary Hoffman, Caroline Pitcher, Terry Pratchett (amongst others), and is a beautiful example of just how visually compelling language can be.
