I followed up the Northern Lights drawings with this digital piece. Based on the airships in the story, I wanted an excuse to see whether I could replicate the style on a tablet. It turned into a new style altogether – I just can’t get the line quality down on screen and I reverted to a style similar to how I used to work with chalk and charcoal. [namedrop] I was discussing this with Chris Riddell the other day at my library’s World Book Day event and he’d had a similar experience with drawing on a tablet. I’ve no idea how he manages to draw so well on a train using pen and paper, though.
