HELLO 2017


Happy New Year one and all! Hope you had a good'un.

I'm starting 2017 in my new art studio, and drawing lots of dinosaurs for an exciting book project due later this year. I'll be posting more snippets of my work over the coming months, so keep watching this space for news, updates, and strange prehistoric creatures!

ATLAS OF MINIATURE ADVENTURES

Introducing the latest book in the 'Atlas' series: 
Atlas of Miniature Adventures!

This book takes a look at some of the smallest adventures from around the world - including the miniature Dutch town Madurodam, the world's smallest post office, and Cuba's tiny bee hummingbird. There are also continent and world maps full of many more small facts to explore! As always, this was a really fun little book to work on with the Wide Eyed Editions team. I especially love seeing my work shrunk down to such a small scale! Some photos of the inside can be seen below…

 'Atlas of Miniature Adeventures' is out now in UK bookshops, and available to buy online here.

POSTCARD CLUB IV

It's been a while since I took part in Postcard Club, but here's a swap I did recently with artist Avia Cohen from Israel. I sent Avia this paper collage of a mystic lady, and Avia sent me a fabulous swan illustration in return.
