Cal Westbrook is a UK based children's illustrator who utilises 3D techniques to compliment her 2D narrative. The work is hand rendered and hand-made, both drawing and making are interlinked. Constructed textile techniques and set construction are used along with watercolor, colored pencil and ink. Illustration combined with soft sculpture is used to encourage reading and imaginative play. 2D characters become 3D for marketing concepts and toys for merchandising. The notion of the book being part of a whole experience rather than a stand-alone product is a key element to the work.
