I was thrilled to receive this drawing of Agent Lurk from a fan the other day. It’s pretty good, don’t you think? I suppose I have someone to finish off the illustrations now if I suddenly decide to retire!
I always love it when kids draw my characters. I suppose it’s something I remember doing as a young person; I was forever drawing my favourite characters. To think that someone wants to draw the characters that I created in my coconut is a little humbling (and a whole lot of fun).
Receiving this drawing of Agent Lurk made me think of the illustration I’m working on right now for Kendra Kandlestar IV. You see, I’m trying to capture what he looks like under the hood. I’ve got a few sketches, but now I’m trying to tidy them up and ink them. It’s tricky business; it will be a surprise to most of you what he looks like under that dark hood and I have to get it just right . . .
