Folktale Week on Instagram took place this week. It was a wonderful week of my Binky McKee illustration account on Instagram being taken over by amazing interpretations of folk tales; lots of interaction, discovering incredible talent and making new friends. Here are some of my interpretations of the prompts: day 1, Forest; day 4, Ghost; day 5, Insect; and day 7, Animal.
I know this blog is totally Binky McKee at the moment, but illustration work has taken priority of late.
For more details on Folktale Week, do visit my Binky Instagram where I have links to the organisers of the event who had incredible vision and worked hard to bring the illustration community together and encourage artists to interact - it was a huge success for everybody who took part!
Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
THE WEEKLY: BINKY McKEE AND ME
Welcome to my blog where I share my work as an illustrator as well as occasional events from the week.
I illustrate under the pen-name of Binky McKee, McKee being my mother's maiden name. Binky was the name of every single cat my great-grandmother owned - about 40 of them during her life! It seemed natural to devote my more nurturing, colourful, story-telling work to the female side of the family, whilst practicing my art work under my paternal name.
Currently I am working on illustrating a children's book, and of course I can't resist an Instagram challenge such as Folktale Week or Inktober!
I hope you enjoy the work!
