Inspiration

Algy is a unique and surprisingly fluffy bird - and the hero of my series of illustrated children's chapter books "Tales from the Adventures of Algy".

Algy is a real puppet, and this illustration from Algy's first book "A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird" was drawn from a photograph of Algy peeping out of a tiny sand cave in the dunes at Sanna Bay, Ardnamurchan. He is covered in sand and seaweed, as he has just crawled across the beach after being washed ashore. When Algy wakes the next morning, he hears a squeaky little voice, and meets Wee Katie the field mouse...

The original illustration from which this card is reproduced was created with Winsor and Newton professional watercolour paints and watercolour sticks, and Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils on Fabriano Artistico HP watercolour paper, with a wee bit of digital drawing at the final stage of processing.
