The Wilful Thing, Development drawings,

Sketches for development of my first picture book to be published 2019 by Hikari Press.

The Wilful Thing is inspired by the life of Charlotte Brontë who obeyed her inner call to write despite the restrictive expectations placed upon her during her lifetime.

‘Gill Smith makes innovative use of text and image to depict the insistent nature of the creative impulse.’ (Hikari Press, 20180
