Tor Freeman’s 3 words of wisdom

Tor Freeman has been illustrating children’s books since graduating university in 1999. She was born in London but lived for five years in California as a child, and has spent time in her mother’s home country of South Africa. She makes fantastic books laden with comic animals such as The Toucan Brothers  and my particular favourite Olive and the Big Secret.

Remember to concentrate.

“Because it can be so pleasant just to draw and let things happen, I can forget to concentrate and make my brain work to think of new things, or really think about how to push an idea, or even come up with a proper idea in the first place! So concentrating on what you’re doing is obvious but certainly something I often forget to do!”


Thanks for your words Tor.
