While producing this children’s theatre play all in one line, I need to illustrate the whole show in order to rehearse with a live musician and actors who perform the story in French.
Every time they need to rehearse I have to complete a massive long continuous line illustration. These draft performance scrolls are gifted to people who come to an atelier, schools where we do workshops, families in the audience, and the dear children of dear friends.
If they’re very well made, I’ve even sold a handful as tapestry style children’s bedroom decor.
My favourite thing in the universe is when I get sent photos of the kids colouring them in, and often illustrating their own imagination in between my scenes, making them even better than I could ever imagine.
