The Princess and the Cafe on the Moat event stateside!

Stole this from @Margielogues on twitter! She did an event at Unlikey Story, Plainville MA! 

I love how everyone is dressed up to take part of one of the many characters in the book!
"Storytelling magic with a colorful cast for the debut of The Princess and the Cafe on the Moat. Thanks for a royal time! Great turnout! "


First day of Spring!

It was the first day of spring today! With the help of my thick Batman Xmas jumper, I managed five mins or so of nearly warm weather in the garden at lunchtime.


Sinusitis AGAIN!

Have hunkered down on the sofa to draw as I'm full of lurgy. I've been really good at only drawing in my tiny studio, but sometimes you have to slob out! 
What do you do when you're under the weather but have things to draw?!



#1 fairy godchild wasn't feeling very well today, so made for an excellent model to do a quick sketch of this afternoon! (He perked up when mam got home )


International Womens Day

A late in the day sketch for #internationalwomensday! I thought I'd pay homage to some of the female characters that had an impact on me as a kid! (Bonus points if you can make any of them out from my pencil scratchings )


White Rabbits Day

I always try and say 'WHITE RABBITS DAY!' first thing on March 1st (which I always fail at, for the request for tea is always foremost in my mind) anyways, as it's also here's that elusive lucky white rabbit as his fave book character.

World Book Day!

Happy #WorldBookDay! I've just seen that 'The History Museum' I illustrated for Bonnier Publishing: Five Mile Press, is out in June! (Link here) Here's a sneak peek of what you can find in the book :D

And not forgetting 'The Princess and the Cafe on the Moat' is out later this month or next I think! See my previous post with the first review in on the book (Link here)
