Daleks with a Donkey

Daleks with a Donkey

This instalment of the Dalek Game is for Robert Louis Stevenson’s Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes which… I have not read. However! I am fond of a little Stevenson, having been raised on Kidnapped and A Child’s Garden of Verses (among others) – just the other day my father was quoting the “Land of Counterpane”.

This donkey owes more than a little to Edward Ardizzone’s illustrations for this book, but I think my donkeys are beginning to improve. There’s a lot of scope there.

In other news: I have put up part of an ongoing series of author portraits and sent off new cover art, internal illustrations and cover sketches. So, daylight is starting to look unfamiliar.

Re: the donkey, you know my suggestions are barely worth the pixels they’re printed on since I’m not an artist (and you are a damned brilliant one), but the thing that stuck out for me is that this donkey’s legs are kind of delicate. Donkeys are nothing if not sturdy. Maybe approaching drawing them from that adjective will help.

    As usual, your work is enchanting…
