Nick Sharratt's exhibition 'Pirates, Pants and Wellyphants' is now on at The Civic in Barnsley.
Nick Sharratt is famed for his work with Julia Donaldson ('What the Jackdaw saw', see a few posts ago, and many others) and Jacqueline Wilson (Tracy Beaker, and many others) as well as his own creations ('Pirate Pete' among many others!).
His Pirates, Pants and Wellyphants exhibition is a hands-on and interactive, showing how he came to be an illustrator with drawings from his childhood, how picture books are made, dressing up activities, creating your own 'Sharacter' and working in his studio!
