Winter Arts Market

I had a good time over in Liverpool for the Winter Arts Market on Saturday. These photos are from Pretty Nice's blog, where they included me in a little write up about the day here!

The Skinny

I created a little illustration for The Skinny magazine's Dec 2014 issue, read the article here.

Walker Books Press Days

Apologies for the absence on this blog lately...when I have so many social media platforms, poor old blogspot gets forgotten about sometimes...

Anyway, I've been rather busy lately, with a few trips to London to help Walker Books promote I'll Give You The Sun! I can't tell you how amazing all the feedback has been and how excited I am for it to come out in April. It's already a New York Times Best Seller! Hope it has the same success in the UK! It should do, the author Jandy is great and the story is beautiful.

In terms of promoting the book, first up we had a bloggers morning on the 29th of November. That's me and Maria, the lovely graphic designer I worked with, giving a presentation. Thankfully it wasn't as nerve wrecking as I thought it would be! It was lovely meeting all the YA bloggers and hearing their kind words about the cover! They all walked away with a goody bag, including proofs of I'll Give You The Sun and also The Sky Is Everywhere.

On Dec 3rd, I travelled around London with the lovely Victoria from publicity, hand delivering proof copies to clients while I created quick ten minute sketch of each person we met!

It's been such a great experience so far and I'm excited for what comes next!

Hello Tiger

Mr Tiger, soon to be printed onto cushions!

Monday, 8 September 2014


Hello everyone! The blog has been a bit quiet lately as last week I took a well needed break in the beautiful city of Budapest! Here's a handful of photos from my trip; the paintings are from the National Portrait Gallery in the castle, the pools are from the relaxing Szechenyi baths, the cake is from a 200 year old coffee house, we visited the Varsely museum, the Fisherman's Bastion, Magrit Island and that little kitty is from a local cat cafe! We were also very lucky to stay in the most beautiful apartment. It was very central and we didn't use public transport once!

Back to work now, lots of prepping to do for autumn/winter products and fairs...

Jandy Nelson For Walker Books

I was thrilled when I was approached by Walker Books to illustrate the UK cover art for Jandy Nelson's anticipated new release, I'll Give You The Sun, along with a new edition of Jandy's first novel, The Sky is Everywhere.

Both books will be released next April. I also created some inside illustrations and chapter headings for I'll Give You The Sun, but you'll have to wait till nearer the time to see them!

This is all very exciting for me and I'll keep you updated. :)

For now you can read about the author and her wonderful novels here.


This platypus fellow is a snippet from a current personal project, expect to see this guy and his alphabet friends on prints, textiles and mugs!


Here's a recent drawing of Mr Lion, who has big textile plans ahead of him!
