Maisie Paradise Shearring II

Maisie Paradise Shearring's illustrations from 'Susan's School Days' (a comic book that Maisie is developing) were exhibited in the Bologna Children's Book Fair Illustrators Exhibition' this spring.
It is a lovely book of remembered childhood, bringing back memories of the textures and smells of school and the feeling of being small, mixed with the horrors of old fashioned teaching practices and corporal punishment. Maisie has just completed her MA in Illustration at the Anglia Ruskin University she has a wonderful loose sketchy style.
I featured her work when she graduated from Edinburgh College of Art and it is great to follow her career.
I am looking forward to meeting her early next year at the Scottish National Gallery.
