I love getting ideas for characters and just sketching them out. The idea for evil Auntie Morag came to me as I was thinking of names for an elderly lady character. I remembered the name Morag from a kid’s TV show and always thought it was such an unusual name. The kind of name that would probably suit an old hag!
I imagined that Morag would be a hunched old woman with a kind of a hunchback. Her clothes would be rags and she’d be followed by her beloved cats. Horribly spoiled cats that she fed fresh salmon throughout the day. Consequently she stank of fish and her clothes were a mess of cat hairs and pulled threads.
Worse still she had grandma stubble and claws for fingers. Probably from years of sewing things or doing rubbish 10,000 piece jigsaws.
And of course she had to have mad staring eyes :)
