I’m Having a Baby

Jellybabies sm

There’s something awfully comforting about those foods that we remember from our childhood.

Jelly Babies seem to like some endless classic sweet. But they were only renamed ‘Jelly babies’ in 1953.

They were originally developed in 1864, when they were called ‘Unclaimed babies’

And in 1918, Bassett’s branded them as ‘Peace babies’.


I tried to use just biro for this piece.

It’s very difficult to get much variation in colour from a biro. They’re designed to give a reliable consistent colour; that’s why we like them so.

Mental note: If I’m going to attempt this again collect a few shades of biro to get a more natural colour variation.

I succumbed to adding watercolour on top of the biro work to add more definition.
