Just a quick phone picture of my desk as I left it this evening.....covered in penguins. I have 45 to paint in total....and seem to end up with lots of rejects. I am planning to cover a wall in partially painted penguins when I am finished!
I spent the weekend at the Cambridge Folk Festival and managed to do a few drawings in my much neglected sketch book - mostly of people lounging around listening to the music......as that's what I was doing too!
My name is Nicola Killen and I graduated in 2009 with an MA in Children's Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art at Anglia Ruskin University. Since graduating I have been working with the publishers Egmont UK. My first picture book is called "Not Me!" and was published in 2010. My next book "Fluff and Billy do everything together" was followed by my first board books, "Animal Numbers" and "Animal Colours". My 3rd picture book, "I Got a Crocodile", published by Simon and Schuster, has just been published.
