Sculpture Description

Julia Dobson Design & Illustration was founded in 2002. Julia has worked with a diverse range of companies from many sectors. Illustration is a key part of her business, but she also writes and illustrates for children and is a member of Swagbag Stories Writers and Artists Group (SSWAG). It takes all sorts to make a world. ‘Allsorts’ new coat is made of bright liquorice sweets in every colour combination. His ears are the aniseed ones, his eyes are the coconut ones, his toes are liquorice rolls. This bold little elephant will make people smile and, like David McKee’s Elmer books, celebrates diversity.
