I'm a HUGE fan of Joan Aiken's work. A scene from her book The Wolves of Willoughby Chase was trapped in my head when I began sketches to what eventually became Hot Air.

All of the adult characters in this story had admirable quirks, and I had a solid idea of what one of these characters looked like.


  1. Wow! What an excellent illo! The dynamic composition, the textures, the movement, all contribute to fantastic storytelling. Not to mention the color and terrific drawing. SOO good!

  2. Many thank yous, Elena! I'm thinking I'd like to hop a trip in one of these things soon.
