Korky Paul's Top Tips for Bringing Your Characters to Life

Korky Paul is the award-winning illustrator of over 60 picture books, chapter books, poetry collections and pop-up books, including the hugely popular Winnie the Witch series.

Watch as Korky draws Winnie, from a rough pencil sketch to a full-colour illustration, and see how Winnie's gestures, expression, clothing and surroundings all help to bring her to life on the page.



Filmed on location in Stirling as part of the Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour, find out more about Korky's tour of Fife and Clackmannanshire here.

We have created learning resources packed with creative ideas to explore the world of Winnie the Witch with your pupils, available to download here.
