black and white #2



Today: drawing children, then and now.

I love the vitality of contemporary life, but when it comes to classics – oh those scratchy grey woollen shorts and button-over shoes and homemade haircuts… when I got the job to re-illustrate Milly-Molly-Mandy, as with Mary Plain, it was a childhood dream come true.

    oh wow. I had missed that. Congratulations Clara. Re-illustrating Milly- Molly- Mandy is amazing – and I know you will do it with so much love and respect for the original ones.

      Thank you so much Anne, how kind of you to say! In fact it was a little while back, and I did indeed keep very close to the originals – I’ll show you next time we meet! xx
