Alex T Smith joins ReadingZone Live

We were thrilled to talk all things illustration with Alex T Smith, the creator of the Claude titles (Hodder Children's Books), finding out what being an illustrator means and talking about his work.

The event took place at Strand on the Green Junior School and we were joined by pupils from Cheam Farm Juniors and Scargill Infants School.

Alex told the children how he started drawing as a very young child and how this took him into eventually writing and illustrating his and other people's books; although he says he is "still learning" his craft.

Alex explained how some of his characters like Claude came about and how his stories and illustrations develop.

He also told the children how he creates his illustration, including using digital resources to help develop his work.

Children were also shown how to draw their very own Claude!
