Illustrator & Author
based in Northumberland.
My name is Monique Scott and I am a local illustrator and author
based in the North East of England. I graduated from the University of Sunderland in 2010 with a BA HONS Degree in Illustration and Design.
I started the first initial ideas for my first book 'Two Little Mice' in late February 2018. The story is based on a true story which includes a powerful message to teach children using vibrant and beautiful illustrations. In the book the two little mice work very hard. They have to work together as a team, through the good times and the bad, to build their perfect home. The message is to never give up and work hard to make your dreams come true.
In the past I owned pet mice which inspired me to use as main characters. Mice are very intelligent creatures and have great personalities and are super cute – I can see why they are a popular animal character to use in story books.
Since my book has been printed, it has been a massive hit! I did not expect so much positive feedback. I have been undertaking my own advertising,
making handmade mice for my limited special editions and selling my
book in local shops who have been so supportive.
I have been so touched with all the
love and support from everyone.
I organise local story time events which are followed by a craft session and book signing in local shops and libraries. It has been a great privilege to share my story and talent to the local community and encourage children to enjoy reading and drawing.
Since 'Two Little Mice' I have now successfully illustrated more children's books such as 'The Elf who saved Christmas' written by Craig Wilde supporting the Grainger Market Delivery which was also used for a animated commercial for the Grainger Market Delivery which featured Kim Woodburn.
My dreams are slowly coming true!
Well, I am always in dreamland when it comes to drawing!
