Alphabetical Archival Advent Calendar – ‘knocking nails’

K is for ‘knocking nails’ – Character development for a Personal picture book project 2014

This is Noah from a short counting adventure I’ve written and not quite finished illustrating. I lost my way with him, but I’m sure I’ll revisit the project at some point in 2015.

Thinking about it now, Noah’s adventure reflects the current practice of getting kids to play outdoors, climb trees and take risks with the upsurge of Forest schools, nature schools and environmental play groups this year. My little Noah would make a great poster boy for Forest Schools, especially when he’s wielding his big hammer and  wrestling an ostrich, elephant and a hippo into his boat with several other silly animals!!
