Fern & Keith

I love any opportunity to get my pens out and create a drawing that someone will love. So I was thrilled to be asked to draw a lovely pair of cats called Fern & Keith, what great names for cats, how could I refuse!

I recorded each step of how I built the drawing so you can follow the progress.

I hope you enjoy seeing the process and how the drawing comes to life.

That is how I made a picture of Fern & Keith!

If you would like an original illustration making just for you please do just get in touch.

All I would need is a selection of good photographs to work from and I will see what I can do for you.
