A short Q and A with Karl Davies;
1) What materials did you use to create the illustrations and what is your process? Mixed Media, so a bit of everything that works. It pays to experiment and try materials out before starting the final illustrations. I imagine how it might look over several weeks and months, drawing a lot of roughs and sketching as I go. Any excuse to draw is really my cup of tea.
2) Do you have a favourite illustration and/or character? Tell us about it. I’m particularly drawn to Beethoven. Although he may appear to be frowning most of the time, I like to think it’s his resting face. He seems to be the most unaffected and stoic of the group.
