How Alfie was born.

By Victoria Byron, May 25 2018 03:42PM

As I was drawing in the museum I came across a sparrow - no 114. He stood out to me amongst the more bigger and colourful birds in the collection. He looked cheeky and chirpy, yet small and ordinary. I thought children would relate to him as they can often feel small and overlooked, so he was just right for my main character. Initially I wanted to call him Solomon but it was decided by the museum that he would be name Alfie. Much more child friendly, so, the character of Alfie began to develop.
