Bouncing Books!

Last year I illustrated four little bouncing books for Small World Creations...aptly named ‘Little Bouncers’. And my dinky little set of four books just arrived through the post today...woohaaay!

The books themselves actually bounce, by pushing them down they then pop up and bounce about!

I was really pleased to hear the good news that they have been printed in 6 foreign language editions, those being Brazilian, Slovenian, Russian, French, Croatian and Latvian (shame the only one I can just about decipher is French!) as well as the English and US editions. So they’ll be bouncing all around the world!

They are available to buy on Amazon...just click the titles for each book to go the amazon page for each...

And here’s some pictures of them (unfortunately I couldn’t quite capture them bouncing!).

A feature in Art Buyer Magazine

Thanks to my great agents at Advocate I have some of my artwork in the latest edition of Art Buyer Magazine...yippeeeee!

Art Buyer is a magazine for the global art licensing industry, which is published twice a year in January and May. Advocate feature 6 times in the current winter issue...and my illustrations appear on page 31 alongside the talented Marina Fedotova’s work in the article “A Character with Charisma”, written by Edward Burns.

Here’s the images...

And here’s the text...

I’m really very happy to have been featured in it!

And if you fancy looking into Art Buyer a bit more their website can be found here:

So it’s a bit late...

So it’s a bit late, but better late than never hey...Happy New Year to all!

After a week of being fully back into work I’ve forgotten I even had a christmas break...from what I can remember it was pretty good. Oh and we saw the New Year in dressed as monkeys (a Noah’s ArK themed party!) although woke up the next day with broken ears and a missing tail. oh dear.

Anyway, work wise its been a busy week and looks like the first couple of months of 2012 will remain that way. Currently I have artwork to colour for a new book for Egmont, a calendar to design and more greetings cards to whip up...oooh plus a really great private commission I am working on. So its full steam ahead for 2012...and I hope to be able to post up many more printed books this year that I worked on in 2011. So I’ll try to keep posting on here!
