I attended workshop in Edinburgh organised by Picturehooks and we developed a character and a short storyboard based on limericks we were given. I choose this lovely limerick:
There was a young pig from Racine
Whose botanical interests were keen.
He planted a sock
in a bright window box,
where it blossomed and sprouted a bean.
And on the picture there you can see the little pig in an action of planting his own sock ;) I really enjoyed to try and illustrate a limerick, I think it's a great way how to illustrate a story when your own writing is not the best ( like mine ;).
