New Editorial Work - Nursery Rhymes
I illustrated a few nursery rhymes for a Scholastic publication late last year, the kids are acting out the rhymes with props. It was a fast turnover but one of these jobs where the characters and situations they're in just flow and work immediately, so I ended up using parts of the last one as a Christmas card last year...looking at it now it could also be an Easter card. For non-English readers: a hot cross bun is a sweet, yeasty, sticky, spicy bun that people eat in Britain and in South Africa etc. on and before Easter! I only ever had one so far during a heatwave in Johannesburg...the bun itself wasn't hot, that's what I always thought that they would have to go into the oven to turn into something else...they look a bit half-baked but I guess that's the yeast.
