This is a poster I have recently completed for my creative writing class. We are having a nerve-wracking reading of some of our own pieces of writing. Having been repeatedly told that I have a ‘little voice’ I need some kind of Brian Blessed style projection help or my performance is looking to be a cross between Marcel Marceau and Whispering Bob Harris!

This was one of the first ones I did, I like to draw quite whimsical, fairytale scenes then to add a pair of evil eyes watching from under the bed!
