Book Cover


Taking the phrase ‘he stitched and stitched’ as a starting point, write and illustrate a 32 page ‘dummy’ picture- book with at least 2 spreads of final artwork.


A Sky Stitched With Stars is the story of a little boy who loves to stitch. One evening, the stars disappear and Rory uses his talent to stitch them all back.

Using a needle and thread, the details of the spreads are stitched into watercolour paintings, and the type is a mixture of hand-rendered and digital to contrast and compliment the crafty feel to the book.
