Grandad’s Beard

Grandad’s beard – explanation

Illustrations for “There’s something weird in Grandad’s Beard” (words by Nick Page). Done as homework for an illustration course with Korky Paul in early 2016.


It’s a story about two children who go exploring in their grandfather’s beard, trying to find their baby sister who has got lost in there. Things get understandably surreal.


I have done full illustrations for three of the twelve spreads, and roughs for the other nine.
