Studying for an MA in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art....a wonderful place with lovely people!

This semester we are working on the sequential image. Before I started my course I was listening to a radio programme about a Rhinoceros called Clara and I made a note of it in case there was an opportunity for a story.

I looked for images of rhinos, but my drawings were very wooden, so one windy rainy day I set off for Whipsnade where they have a herd of Indian rhino ...and some babies! (Click this link to watch a wonderful video of the baby rhino).

Here are some of my sketches...what lovely animals they are glad I went!
