One Girl Goes Hunting: Latest Artwork


John Swogger has created brilliant new artwork for our joint project One Girl goes Hunting.

We’ve both talked before about the challenge of finding the right way of presenting the characters and the story on the page. John has done a tremendous amount of work drawing and redrawing Kat-ya and finding a way of recreating the cinematic sweep of Studio Ghibli animations on the page.

His latest images perfectly capture the Ghibli-style big skies and dynamic landscapes that first made me want to write One Girl… The action sequences look brilliant too, with John’s perfect pacing and layout drawing the reader into the story.

I could keep writing about John’s artwork, but I think you’d rather just look at it for yourselves…

    These drawings are so, so exciting.
    Or, as Fluffy says of tractors, these “are good. They’re so good. … tut.”

  3. Looks fabulous! Can see the Studio Ghibli style. Was lucky enough to visit the Ghibli museum on a visit to Tokyo last summer.

      I’m very jealous! One of my ambitions is to visit the Ghibli museum. Can you go inside the catbus?! I would also love to go to Hokkaido, though I am a bit afraid of meeting Murakami’s Sheep Man from”A Wild Sheep Chase”.

      • There is a cat bus you can go inside but this is a big attraction for all the smaller kids. It really is a unique place/building with such attention to detail – even down to door handles etc. Also has the best entry ticket ever which is a couple of actual film frames held within the ticket. I have loads of photos so may do a post at some point.

    @fifepsy please do a post about the museum. I’d love to see the photos.
