Curtis Jobling visits Gayhurst

Curtis provided a stimulating and informative presentation, starting off with  how he became an illustrator, working for prestigious animation companies.  He regaled the children with amusing anecdotes and demonstrated how simple shapes led to famous figures such as Bob the Builder and Raa Raa the lion.  His love of writing, especially of the fantasy genre, was much in evidence,  and he enjoyed reading out selected extracts from his published fiction. Those who had purchased the books are keen to start reading them and he left a lasting impression on some – Rory in Year 5 exclaimed – ” He was very inspirational, especially when he mentioned to never give up on your hobby as one day it could become your life.”
