October Update

It's been a hectic few weeks here and I've not had time even to post entries for Illustration Friday :o( but I've finished a new book called 'When will it Snow' which is off at Frankfurt Book Fair with Little Tiger Press getting it's first airing! I did a local school visit with Lauren from Stripes publishing yesterday and in spite of having twice as many children as I expected (75!!) we had a great story and craft session and the kids made lots of little monsters - each one unique! I love how creative they are and how some love to make them neat, some colour co-ordinated and some just go wild with their imaginations!
Anyway that's it and we're off to Spain now for a lovely holiday so bye bye blog for a couple of weeks !


  1. Hi Alison,

    So glad i found your blog, your illustrations are just beautiful. Any chance you illustrate for Advocate? I work for a greeting card company and I feel like I have seen your work before. It's a very recognizable style.

    Keep up the fantastic work.

  3. Hello Alison,
    Your blog is spectacular! I love your work. Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

  4. Thanks for the lovely comments! You're right Rachael, I do work for Advocate and I'm pleased that you think my style is recognizable - it's what I strive for! Thanks Marion - my holiday was lovely!

  5. Hi Alison!

    I was going to possibly use your "Three Billy Goats Gruff" book as part of a project I am doing. Is there anyway that I could ask you some questions about how you illustrate and about the book?
