The Girl Reading Greeting Card

The Girl Reading Greeting Card


Our little heroine Harriet has been popping up in my pictures before Squid Ink Art ever came about. I drew her the first time like this - reading in the big chair, well over a year ago, but it was one of those pictures I always wanted to come back to and finish properly. I ended up doing several copies of this idea trying out colours and backgrounds, but deciding in the end that keeping it simple in black and white was the way to go. For any booklover, the idea of a comfortable spot, a cup of your favourite hot beverage, a never-ending pile of books and the luxury of having some reading time is heavenly. That’s what this picture is trying to capture, as well as hopefully help to influence a new generation to learn to love and appreciate books.  I added in some animal friends - her dog (who looks suspiciously like our dog Georgie), cat, birds and some cheeky mice.
