You've Got Talent

My line drawings feature in ‘You’ve got Talent’, a new book about the entertainment industry aimed at teenagers, published by DK. The book is packed with facts about ‘the business’, including basic dance steps, stage make-up techniques and entertainment terminology.

I contributed fifty drawings in total for three graphic novel style double page spreads which introduce the three main chapters of the book; music, dance and drama. Each of these introductory spreads gives a potted history of each respective discipline – from its earliest recorded form, to its current incarnations in chart hits, movies and reality TV talent shows.

I’m really pleased with the finished spreads, which feature an eye-catching mix of line-work, colours, captions and photographic backgrounds. It’s also a refreshing change to see my work in a book aimed at young people!
