The Wind in the Willows

I'm really excited to have been asked to do some illustrations for Alma Books's new edition of The Wind in the Willows. The inside drawings are in black and white, and colour for the cover! It was intimidating to begin drawing such well-known characters - EH Shepard's version is so iconic and beautiful, and my style isn't very realistic! I pretended it was a normal, new book, for me, and now I'm happy with how this cover has come out. 

Re-reading it I feel much more impatient with Toad than ever before, and much more keen on Ratty!

This edition of The Wind in the Willows will be published by Alma Books in April 2017.

Thought Bubble 2016!

I'm very excited to be heading up to Leeds tomorrow for the Thought Bubble Festival! This is my second year there - I have half a table and my sister is coming too! I'll be mostly selling copies of my comic, Welcome to Oddleigh, but I'll have some stickers, prints and cards too.

If you are in Leeds this weekend and coming to Thought Bubble, please come and say hello - I'll be in the Royal Armouries Hall, table 56b!

Welcome to Oddleigh

Hello! I haven't been updating here much as my personal stuff energies have recently been focussed on my comic, Welcome to Oddleigh. I've just finished the second story, The Dentist, and I'm aiming to get a third done in time to make a zine to take up with me to Thought Bubble! 

I'll post some of the other non-comic things I've been working on here soon, but until then do please check out Welcome to Oddleigh - Shell and The Dentist.

The next story, Cult, is coming soon!

Draw It! Colour It! Beasts

The follow up to Draw It! Colour It! Creatures is going to be published in September by Macmillan Children's Books: Draw It! Colour It! Beasts! I'm proud to have been asked by Emily Ford to be part of this wonderful project once again. 

Just like the last one, this is beautifully realised activity book, with opportunities for colouring, drawing and inventing. I thought the last book was beautiful, and this can sit proudly next to it. In terms of follow-ups, this is definitely a Last Crusade rather than a Kingdom of the Crystal Skull!

There is such a nice variety of spreads inside...

Add food to Bethan Woollvin's hungry croc! 

Draw underground animals in Lydia Coventry's picture!

What are Jools Bentley's monster gang eating?

Help Miss Medusa with her hair on Marta Alt├ęs's spread!

Colouring and sheep-completing with Steve Lenton's drawing! 

Who is Jim Field's Piuggle's owner? And what will Yasmeen Ismail's Fluffy look like with new hair?

What are Zak Simmonds-Hurn's characters running from in the ice??

Here's my spread! A cat circus, draw in alllll the extra cats!

Here's the one that I've done so far! Alexis Deacon's excellent monster page...

Draw It! Colour It! Beasts is published by Macmillan Children's Books this September.

Congratulations Emily and Macmillan!
