The Fearless Goat / Mac Millan 2016 Competition
'The competition is for a series of outstanding illustrations that show that the artist understands how to match pictures to text. The pictures should also demonstrate the entrant's grasp of narrative, pacing and characterisation point.
The story that I chose to illustrate was in fact a true story emerging in the news at the time I took the brief. It is based around a tiger, who was living at a safari park in Russia and was fed live prey everyday. The goats were always eaten until one day a clueless yet very brave goat appeared to form a close friendship with the tiger. The moral of this story book is to teach young children that sticking up for yourself and being brave can take you far.
