Clayimagination Children’s book illustration

One sunny day, we decided to conduct a workshop for children in which we would teach kids to make their own storybooks.

Illustrating with clay is so much more fun than poking buttons on a mouse all day long.

We worked with children to create entire dioramas of story scenes and then photographed each child’s story sequence. Here’s one child’s re-imagination of the Goldilocks story with somewhat improbable twists.

Illustrating stories with clay is the most fun we had other than that one time we splashed large cans of paint around to draw iconic blues musicians. But that’s another story.
