For those who are unaware Star Gazey pie is a cornish dish originating from a legend based in the costal village of Mousehole. (Read 'The Mousehole Cat' by Antonia Barber, I grew up with it, it's amazing and features great illustrations from Nicola Bayley).

It's coming along! This is taking a little longer than expected as I'm certainly learning along the way but so far it's what I pictured. Any comments appreciated, as this is my first illustration using this method (like a drawing collage in photoshop).

Some build-up work for Illustration Friday 'Star Gazing'. This was a few weeks ago but it sadly got moved to a lower priority whilst the 'big move' was in it's final stages. This week it SHALL be completed! I like it so far so I'm determined to get it done.
