Everyone has a different favourite character from The Book of Learning, but Winston is proving rather popular – especially during our illustration demonstrations. If you’ve drawn a character from my book, I’d love to see it! You can send me a photo or post your drawing (everyone likes happy post!) to: ER Murray, c/o Mercier Press Ltd, Unit 3b Oak House, Bessboro Rd, Blackrock, Cork, T12 D6CH
I’ll be demonstrating how to draw Winston in The Book of Learning House on Merrion Square (March 20th, part of the Big Day Out, St Patrick’s Festival in Dublin) so come along and join in! There’ll be real rats, a magician, writing and art workshops and more… and I’ll be there. Stop by and say hello!
In the meantime, here’s some of my ‘Winston Gallery’ drawings so far…
