Hello, my name is Emily Regan. My Self directed Project is entitled Inside Your Outside! and is a series of seven books which give a fun introduction to the internal organs of the human body. My target audience is children of key stage 1 and 2 ages, 5 to 10 years old. My style of working is inspired by many things, but my love of Japanese style graphics shows through in a lot of my work, namely the cute or “Kawaii” style that inhabits most Japanese pop culture. For my book illustrations, I have used Adobe Illustrator, a vector based graphics program, but I do also love to work in many other traditional mediums, such as watercolour, graphite, and markers. To accompany my books, I have also created a set of plush toys to really bring my characters to life, and what better way than a cuddly toy of your brain, or your intestines, Enjoy!
