Chirp’s March Issue

I used to read Owl magazine religiously as a child, so you can imagine how happy I was to do some work for their primary years publication Chirp. Along with the cover, I also created a busy Laos textile market scene for their Take A Trip page.

My friend and fellow illustrator, Charlotte Oh, created a cute plasticine flip book featured in the same issue. You can see more of her work here.

    Ashley, if you get the chance you should publish a coffee table book of your art!

    I love your illustration on both on the cover and within.
    Good Job Ashley!
