Il­lus­tra­tor brings his cre­ations to school

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

AS IL­LUS­TRA­TOR of a host of chil­dren’s television and book char­ac­ters in­clud­ing Bag­puss, The Clangers and Ivor the En­gine, Peter Firmin is a hero to fol­low­ers of the ad­ven­tures. On Fri­day the cre­ator joined pupils at Chal­lock pri­mary school to view their com­puter and card an­i­ma­tion and left im­pressed with their ef­forts. As cre­ator of nu­mer­ous pup­pets, in­clud­ing Basil Brush, the Blean-based artist pro­duced some of his most fa­mous char­ac­ters and left the young­sters in­spired to work even harder on their skills.
