Christmas preparation

Slightly later than planned I’m taking full advantage of half term by finally getting some Christmas card designs together. I’ve had a bit too much fun splashing ink around but am quite pleased with the result. Here’s a sneak peak of some lettering!image

Animals eating things

I have been rubbish at updating this.. However it means I’ve got loads of stuff to post from the last couple of months so here goes the first one.

These two came out of a fit of inspiration after doodling two of my favourite things: food and animals with big bums. Enjoy.

Monkey & Walrus – a work in progress

Introducing… Monkey and Walrus; two very unlikely friends.

I’ve had these characters and their story in my head for quite some time, and thanks to a week spent at Chelsea College of Arts on a short course I’ve been able to start the slow process of bringing them to life.

I’ve had a tremendous amount of fun creating these images, and plan on updating here with better quality images as I make them.


Let me introduce myself:

I am a London based primary school teacher with a burgeoning side line in children’s book illustration.

After some positive feedback to some recent work of mine, I finally plucked up the courage to join the scary world of the internet and start a blog.

I hope to update this regularly with any bits and pieces I create from the ideas swimming around in my head, so watch this space.

Thanks for visiting!
