How to draw Fred, by Posy Simmonds

The prolific artist shows us how to draw her feline popstar creation




 1 of 3 

Artist and Illustrator Posy Simmonds writes children's books, including the award-winning Fred. Here she talks to Junior about her illustration inspiration

"My first drawing was a big woman, covered in buttons, when I was about three. Now I draw mostly in pen and ink, or soft pencil that smudges on paper. I like the immediacy of both, the way they're like an extension of handwriting. Also you can draw on the bus, on the beach, anywhere. Drawing is such a wonderful pastime: you can do it anywhere. Draw every day... even if it's on steamed up windows.

I love illustrating for children: The main difference to my other work is that I wouldn't draw so many people smoking!

One of my favourite children's characters is Fred, a cat with a secret popstar life. He reminded me of a childhood cat who wasn't a popstar but who was, nevertheless, very talented (catching mice, sleeping all day)."
