heroes and villains

Saturday saw the 6th annual St Ives Book Jam and I was there doing collage and drawing for the 6th time! It was another very splendid day which was as well attended by authors, illustrators and book-loving children as it always is. I helped create a huge mural curated by wonderful illustrator and author Pam Smy based on the theme of Heroes and Villains. In the afternoon I worked with the lovely and talented author-illustrators Trudi Esberger and Carolina Rabei to help children create villains, superhero masks and superhero emblems. I took charge of the villains of course; check out cat burglar Claws Malone, the dreadful Salamander of Doom and last but not least the infamous bank robber Bad Giraffe

Cats in Wonderland

Ever since colouring books became a thing I have wanted to have a go at doing my own colouring-in drawing and last year I got the chance! I was commissioned by Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium to create a Wonderland inspired drawing of one of their cats to feature in their colouring book alongside the work of other cat-loving artists. The feline who was to become my muse was the beautiful Victor and here he is hanging out on a giant toadstool and watching bubbles go by. You can buy the book Cats in Wonderland here if you are a colouring fan and an ailurophile! ps I only just learnt what that word means too… thanks for that one Emily!

The Cambridge Art Book

This runaway doggie is from a rather special book I have been involved with called The Cambridge Art Book. Cambridge artist Emma Bennett had a fantastic idea which was to create a book showing Cambridge through the eyes of the artists who live here. As a Cambridge dweller and illustrator I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the 50 artists who will feature in the book. Have a look at the book’s website which has links to the collaborating artists to get an idea of all the exciting stuff going on in this city!
