Zoey and Sassafras

I’m working away on a new and exciting series of chapter books at the moment and here is the first cover! Dragons and Marshmallows is the first of three titles in the Zoey and Sassafras series written by multitalented superlady Asia Citro of Fun At Home With Kids fame. All three books will be coming out in March 2017 from American publishing house The Innovation Press. It’s a bit of a dream illustrating these books – not only do I get to draw pictures of Zoey and her constantly entertaining cat Sassafras, but I also get to draw monsters and dragons – perfect! Here is a sneak peek at some of the interior illustrations from book 1:

night sprites and happy clouds

Patterns and illustrations seem to be coming together for me – I do find it quite difficult not to give everything a happy face, even if it’s just clouds… Here are a couple of new patterns.

Bubble Cat

I’ve been working on lots of new things lately but this week I decided to have a bit of a return to form and draw a cat… Here he is blowing bubbles.
