This short animation shows how Liz Annelli created the illustrations for Ten Pound Pom using a combination of collage, hand-drawn sketches and digital layering techniques. Each of the layers is brought together digitally to create the scenes in the story. The collection of drafts, prints and digital material from Ten Pound Pom is part of the illustration collection (PWC/269).

The illustration in the video is called "We take the train to Tilbury Docks", which became the cover illustration for Ten Pound Pom, Illustrated by Liz Anelli and words by Carole Wilkinson, published by Black Dog Books, 2017.
