Off To The Seaside

Marcel would like to apologise greatly for having neglected his blogging lately...he has just been far far far too busy with book covers, never ending book pencils, greetings cards etc etc. So finally he has decided enough is enough and after 9 months of hard work he is taking a little break by the seaside. 
Time to pop the paws up, slurp on a cocktail and enjoy the sun (fingers crossed!!)...

Finally I have a website!

Marcel has been ever so busy with his technology head screwed on, and has managed to magic up a website! Unfortunately he is absolutely exhausted now and is putting his feet up with a slice of cake, so here is his friend Christophe Le Chat introducing the new website...

A slightly alternative Cinderella Tale...now for sale!

Woohooooooo...It’s now officially available to buy! 

“Cinderella A Wheel-y Silly Fairy Tale” is published by Simon and Schuster, written by Tina Gallo and illustrated by ME!

The classic fairy tale Cinderella is retold with a silly twist in this playful, interactive format that's sure to keep little ones laughing. Readers can turn the wheel on each page of this paper-over-board title to choose the correct words needed to complete the scene and further the story. Once the "right" word is displayed, the art on the wheel completes the image. Silly options will entertain and guide readers to choose the correct word and image.

Exciting developments for Super Sam

I have recently illustrated a fab little book for Harper Collins called ‘Super Sam’. It is clever story written by a talented young writer Kaitlin Broadfoot, who actually won the ‘Collin’s Big Cat Writing Compettion’ at her school, which has given her the chance to see her story get published...and I was lucky enough to be chosen to illustrate it.

The insides are top secret for now, but the cover is above and here’s a closer peek at the super dog that is Sam!

Busy again...

Marcel would like to apologise massively as he hasn’t been keeping his diary up to date. It is all due to his manic few days of drawing, sketching, scribbling, doodling and general inkiness for a number of very fun and exciting new books he is drawing.

More details to follow...but for now he is going to allow himself a well deserved slice of cake!
