Merry Christmas and a catch up.

 So Merry Christmas to you all!
Here's a bit of a catch up.....

  One of the big projects I worked on this year was a group of phonic fairy tale books with Make Believe Ideas.
The samples arrived a few weeks ago and here are some pics.
These will be available from January and I will put a link on here as soon as they are on sale.

 Make Believe Ideas also produced these lovely notebooks using some of my artworks too. I'm loving these.

Finally I found the exclusive Sainbury's version of my ABC book in store. You can't beat finding your products in the shops:-)


So, I have a few exciting projects in the pipeline for 2014, so far its set to be a busy year.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New year. x

ABC book and reading books

Wow!!!What a summer its been.......

I got some new book samples through yesterday, its an alphabet book I did illustrations for with Make Believe Ideas.
It has all sorts of fancy flaps textures and sliders. I'm really pleased with it!!


 I also got some samples through of two reading books I illustrated with Denise Ryan Associates in Australia - Cuckoo Cuckoo and Coyote, A Trickster Tale. Getting the finished books is one of the best things about this job....... As well as doing what you love for a living......As well as being able to listen to the radio all day, and drink coffee, and eat chocolate.....and have a cat on your knee......and listen to audio books.........and I'm finally having a go at my own book.....you never know. *crosses fingers*

Cuckoo Cuckoo!

Hi there!
Its been too long since I last posted.

Here's a lovely job I did last summer with Denise Ryan & Associates, Melbourne, Australia. Who are lovely to work with.
This is a reading book that is being published by 
Teacher Created Materials of Huntington Beach, California.
Isn't it amazing how easily we work with people all around the world now? I don't want to sound old, but the 18yr old me would have been amazed!

I loved working on this, I love drawing birds and owls so this was a treat! My aim was to include as much colour and pattern as possible.
I hope you like it.....

I'm very excited that I can give a set to my niece on her first Christmas.

All that remains is to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2013! x
