The Brittons

Family illustrations, family portrait, Walking families

Meet ‘team’ Britton, or possibly the most outdoorsy family you’ve ever met. They live for the great outdoors, and this has to be reflected in this portrait, and this is how they found themselves on a kayak, and happy too!

Their little boy exhibits classic signs of Gruffalo obsession, and he can be spotted peering here – which is in itself an homage to Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s books – have you noticed that each of Julia an Axel’s books feature a hidden Gruffalo somewhere?

The picture is hand-drawn and cut out, and laid over handmade tibetan paper.

Karuski is the nom de pencil for me, Katherine Mengardon - I am a fan of all things 1960s, CAKES, obscure indie pop bands, children illustrations, bad puns and cats. Any spare time goes towards baking mad cakes, drawing families and catified musicians.
