Mixing Media

This illustration shows off Polly Dunbar's wonderful illustration technique perfectly.

Jackie and Lizzie are in full flight, showing off their costumes with wings fully realised in collage.

The sense of movement is created through the shape of the characters, spreading their limbs to fill the page.

The collage sun shines down from the top corner of the page, creating a sense of atmosphere and excitement.

David Almond has spoken of being influenced by classical literature and mythology when working on My Dad's a Birdman.
