Illustration Friday - 'Double'

Friday again and this week's Illustration Friday subject is 'double'. It's nice to be able to submit these dolphins which are part of an illustration I did a few years ago for a book called 'My Little Night-light' published by Caterpillar Press. I had so much fun painting the light on the waves - I'd love to do more seascapes if I ever get a chance!

Illustration Friday - 'Breakfast'

Perhaps it's not your regular Ulster Fry, but it's still someone's breakfast! An illustration I did for Tracey Corderoy's Star Friends which I thought was just right for this week's topic.

Illustration Friday - 'Diary'

I've finally managed to produce something new for IF - I've been so busy the last couple of months that I had to rummage through my existing stuff to fit the word! But this week I have a day off - so what do I do? An illustration - bit of a busman's holiday!

Just some news!

I've had a really busy month and there's lots going on so here's an update on what's happening in my illustration world!
We had the launch of Star Friends published by Little Tiger Press on Thursday, and you can buy it here!
Yesterday I finished the artwork for a new book in the Flip-up Fairy Tales series published by Child's Play. It's called The Magician's Nephew, based on The Sorcerer's Apprentice, and it's going to be released in October.
This weekend I'm starting work on my next book for Little Tiger Press - it's always very exciting to start a new book as there are so many possibilities, and I love the story, which is by Kathryn White. More on this later.
And, as if that's not enough, next week I'll be working on the illustrations for A Winter's Night, for Stripes Publishing which will be my third book in a series of winter animal stories for children aged 6-9, the others being Winter Tales and Winter Magic. This will be published in October as well.
I've got a busy few months ahead, with a high spot at the end of August when I'll be doing a workshop at the Edinburgh Book Festival - very exciting and a bit daunting for me!

My illustration from The Elves and the Shoemaker - the shoemaker is a giant if you are an elf!
