Children's Book Illustration
Tracey is expanding her work into children's book illustration. She has several book projects of her own under development, illustrated with lino printing and other mediums. Which will hopefully be coming soon... but until then here's a lino print illustration from one of her favourite children's book.
Illustration - 'Twas The Night Before Christmas
An excert from Clement C Moore's 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.
His eyes - how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
“Anybody with artistic ambitions is always trying to reconnect with the way they saw things as a child.”
