I work in a unique and inspirational museum, the only museum in the UK dedicated to the art of children’s literature. Every day I am surrounded by original manuscripts and artwork and it has rekindled a desire to draw and a resolve to draw something every day. So I draw faces. The rules are; no sketching, straight to paper with a bunch of fine liners or pencils and see what happens. Some take no more than five minutes, others a bit longer.Over time these faces have evolved into pointy eared, sharp chinned little creatures; Ziggy’s Elves.
Occasionally people have asked for an elf to be created especially for them or even have themselves “elfed.” If you’ve got an idea for an elf leave a comment on this page. I’ll get doodling and link it up to your blog.
