There are many action-packed double spreads throughout which gave me a chance to play with a slightly graphic style.
Familiar as I am with drawing Pirates and parrots, this story was another challenge to illustrate as I wouldn't say drawing diggers and racing cars are my strong point! So I was a little worried when a digger was to feature on the cover and then a racing car on the back! I'm sure there will be some digger experts to guide me when I take this book to school classrooms over the coming year. Look out for those comparisons later!
