Lemon and Elephant

It's high time I posted something so the following are pages from some kids books I've been working on.

The idea behind my obscurely humorous tale 'Adventures of a Lemon' was simply to explore the avenue of photography using the urban landscape as a background. I anthromorphosised some fruit and veg, and with the lemon as my main character a story was gradually built around their experiences on the tough streets of the city, avoiding their fate on the plate having been plucked from the cosy vegetable patch or orchard they'd grown up in.

'Elephant' is a short but sweet story I wrote in response to an illustration brief to create a book based on 'deception'. Aiming it at a younger audience than the first, I took to the scissors and played around with coloured paper to come up with these appealing characters.
