I recently illustrated the Irish language picture book ‘Scúnc agus Smúirín’ (Skunk and Sniffy), a story by Muireann Ní Chíobháin about a little skunk and his uniquely smelling friend, Smúirín. So much fun working on this story, published by Futa Fata.
I populated Scúnc’s smelly world solely with big-nosed animals. I’m sure they weren’t chuffed about this.
And skunks only eat smelly food, right? Makes sense. This story is a scent-filled journey featuring old socks, brussels sprouts and burnt toast!
