Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | Drawn to the story

Shirley Hughes, winner of this year's Kate Greenaway Medal, on the importance of illustration...

There is a rich tradition of English illustration. The skill is acquired at the outset by applying yourself assiduously to life drawing, lurking about a lot with a sketchbook and then letting your imagination run riot. If you are attempting to engage an audience with a story, good draughtsmanship has to underpin even the most uninhibited colour technique; it is the muscular framework that holds you up as you trip a light fantastic.

Essential reading...
