I was invited to the book launch of Tom Gates: Extra Special Treats (...Not) by Liz Pichon. We started with a doodle workshop where Liz Pichon showed us how to draw characters from her book. Next, everyone doodled on the massive blackboard walls of the venue, The Doodle Bar, which looked amazing! Liz said that her inspirations were Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake and her surroundings. Her advice to budding authors is to never give up and to write about things that interest you!
