â€œ....The four-and-twenty sailors
That stood between the decks,
Were four-and-twenty white mice
With rings about their necksâ€
I designed the cover of this sketchbook inspired by the classic â€˜Mother Gooseâ€™ nursery rhyme â€œI Saw A Ship A-Sailingâ€, featuring white mice sailors and a duck as captain, complete with his own sailorâ€™s cap!
The design has been hand-drawn from my own illustration onto the cover of a Paperchase sketchbook, using black ink pens and gouache paints for the colour. This sketchbook would also be ideal as a photo album or scrapbook for a child; the pages are plain for you to do whatever you want to them!
