Illustration Friday: Detective

April 20, 2010

"Who's been tasting my porridge?"
"Who's been sitting on my chair?"
"Who's been sleeping in my bed?"

Goldilocks and the Three Bears is most likely the first "whodunnit" story we hear as children. Nowadays my favorite detective reads are probably Dorothy Sayers' Lord Peter novels. Oh, and the Brother Cadfael series.

This is one of my new just-for-fun projects: one-page illustrations of familiar stories and fairy tales. I plan to color the pen-and-ink illustration digitally. Now to decide on the palette . . . .
