The creation of The Dinky Donkey!

Katz Cowley is the illustrator of the hit viral sensation The Wonky Donkey which was the first children’s picture book she ever illustrated. Since the book’s runaway success, she has illustrated more brilliant books, including the hilarious Willbee the Bumblebee. Katz has been kind enough to send us pictures of her work from her sketchbook, including pictures from the brilliant follow up to The Wonky Donkey, her latest book The Dinky Donkey.

When Katz adds colour, and her illustrations are ready for the final book, they look like this…

Of course, Katz doesn’t just draw donkeys…
