Typography and space

 This is an illustration for the front cover of the Book Ella Climbs a mountain, its from an old book my dad bought me from a charity shop, I am working with the typography giving it a few tweaks here and there. I adore hand drawn type, i think its really exciting, and i feel really inspired after my trip to oxford, i miss sight seeing, i found falmouth really inspiring like this...open space to create and feel inspired is such a great bonus.
I got this really great sketchbook from oxford its massive size and now i have figured how to scan large sheets of paper on my scanner i can do what i want its great.
 These are a few drawings that i created in my sketchbook wee little random ones, the squirrel below is floella squirrel, she wears green jumpers and red shoes :)
