For some time, I've wanted to try my hand at writing and illustrating a children's picture-book. There is a vague story to go with this image - all I need to do now is write it, illustrate it and find someone to publish it ;)
As with most of my recent work, Morris started out as a series of doodles before being dragged into Illustrator. Textures were then added in Photoshop.
Originally, there was no intention to take him any further than this, but as I was creating the artwork, a story started to form and before I knew it, I'd created a mock-up of how it might look as an actual book.
