I have just finished my M.A in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art and thoroughly enjoyed it. I consider myself an illustrator and I work for a company called 'Creative Minds' who take art and craft sessions to older adults and adults with learning disabilities. The following entries are my drawings and musings. All images are copyright of Kerina Strevens. Please contact me on my website kerinastrevens.co.uk.

These are two recent sketches of our cats again. It's so hot, I can't go out in it. Well, I could but I think I would probably shrivel up. I'm not good in intense sun. My brother thinks I tan from blue to white and I have trouble trying not to dazzle traffic with my super whiteness. While the rest of society goes a lovely golden colour and tans into beautiful shades, I go a brilliant, bright red. That's why I don't bother. I got second degree sun burn when I was twelve and had to have all my blisters treated in hospital. I love the sun and warmth and brightness but it doesn't much seem to like me. I am a shade loving creature. The person who everyone wants to sit next to on public transport, to show off their tan. I didn't tell you my good news from a few weeks ago. I put it on Facebook and then didn't write it up here. I got two cartoons in 'Private Eye', which I was very pleased about. I have a busy week coming up this week.
