John Purcell Paper A5(ish) sketchbook number 4, begun Septemberish 2002

Mostly more stuff relating to work on the Horrible Histories magazine. You will note the preponderance (is that the word?) of googly eyes in an effort to match my style to that of Martin Brown, the illustrator of the HH books. MB himself actually drew googly eyes rather less consistently than I did in my imitation of him, but I guess that's a bit like the way impressionists overuse catch phrases to identify a character in a vocal impersonation. So I guess what I'm saying is that googly eyes were Martin Brown's "play it again, Sam".
