Hobbledown, is a fantastic new adventure park and farm, which has opened this summer in Epsom. Our illustrator, Lyn Stone was chosen to help create the story and image of the site.
The park’s theme is based on a story written by Angela Hulber and illustrated by Lyn, who did the cover and over thirty-two pencil illustrations. Crucial to the project was the creation of the main characters and their homes and Lyn’s imagination and humour has proved invaluable to the Hobbledown team. Lyn also created a range of animal and character silhouettes with Adobe Illustrator. The silhouettes are part of the park’s main identity and feature with the logo, website and on site signage.
Lyn was recently invited to their grand opening and alongside the author signed over two hundred and fifty books on a very hot day! Between creating sketches in books and holding babies for the photographer, she had a great day!
Lyn’s highly detailed illustrations have been created using soft graphite pencils. She very much enjoy’s and thrives on projects that allow her to really use her imagination, creating worlds and creatures that compliment and enhance great stories.
It doesn’t end here for Lyn either, as there are plans for a further four or five books in all!
