Shake, Rattle....and read!

MORE samples have been sent to me, yay! This time they are from the lovely people at Igloo Books.

At the end of last year I illustrated two very fun board books called ‘Little Shakers’. They are reasonably small books ideal for babies and very young readers. Each has a handle and a large rattle in the middle so the child can shake and rattle the book as they follow the story and it’s characters. They’re not in my usual inky line style of drawing, but instead in my younger softer style.

Here’s a few pictures if you fancy a peek...

and to the farm...

Rudy The Robot arrives!

Last year I illustrated three little educational books for a Korean company and was very happy to receive some sample copies today. They books are to aid children with the phonetics of words with a focus on pronouncing certain letters, and all feature a fun little character called Rudy The Robot.

All three of the books

'Rudy The Red Robot' focuses on pronouncing words beginning with the letter R...

‘Rudy Cooks with Cathy’ focuses on pronouncing words beginning with the letter C...

And finally ‘Rudy Helps The Baby Wolf’ focuses on pronouncing words beginning with the letter W...

It was a year ago that I illustrated these books and its interesting to see how my illustrations have changed, developed and hopefully improved over the year.

None the less it’s great to see the work in print!

A recent inking...

As usual I am a busy bee with all sorts of work (including Adult book covers, Greetings cards and fun new Picture books) therefore my blog has been neglected again

But for now here’s a little snippet of one of the characters who featured on my most recent set of greetings cards that I was commissioned to design. What a happy little chappy...and he’s making me want cake!
