Bethany Bluebell Illustration

I found the amusing cartoon (above left) when scouring the web for pictures of Puffing Billy that could be of interest for the Puffing Billy Festival. It was drawn by Bethany Whitehead as her entry in 2013 for the Macmillan Prize for Children’s Book Illustration, entitled The Grand Adventure of Professor Meriwether and his ship Spiritus and she has very kindly allowed me to use it here. Her work is showcased on Tumblr as Bethany Bluebell Illustration and is well worth a look.
The illustration on the right was drawn specially by Bethany to illustrate the story of Isaac Jackson showing his model steam locomotive at Close House.
