Right I have read “Leaf by Niggle” again, and I’ve come up with a rough list of pieces to try and illustrate. However, I’ll probably change my mind and illustrate some completely different pieces. So here is the rough list…..
Cover – Niggle painting a leaf (shock horror), or number 16 – burnt leaf, I could likely spend more time on design ideas than illustration.
1. Niggle and Parish’s Houses in the country.
2. Niggle in his shed.
3. Parish & Niggle talking – prior to bike ride (sketch)
4. Niggle on bike
5. The inspector and driver
6. On the train. (sketch)
7. In the ward
8. Breaking Rocks (sketch)
9. Niggle lying listening to ‘the voices’
10. Niggle and Guard
11. Niggle’s bike with label (sketch)
12. Seeing the tree
13. Niggle and Parish working by the tree
14. Walking together (sketch)
15. Niggle goes on
16. Burnt piece of canvas
17. Final sketch of the sign (Niggle’s Parish).
Okay, so there are probably more than is needed for such a short story but hey, I’m an amateur 😉
Now all I have to do is get together some reference pics then start sketching – working out what Niggle looks like is proving to be a problem, but something will come along…..
