Can't wait to get into bed! My hands are turning into claws because I've been drawing so much!

Where did all the sun go????

Serious pastelling day today. Well... as serious as pastelling can get anyway.

I'm still tinkering but I think this is pretty much done. The Northern Lights

A little update on the Northern Lights picture... Getting there slowly.

Working on a new personal piece today based on Phillip Pullmans The Northern Lights. Listened to the trilogy recently whilst working and forgot how much I love it. Will show more very soon... But here is a small part of the rough sketch for Lyra.


A very little crop of a book that will be coming out later this year.

Meet Little Train, the FANTASTIC new character from @timothymknapman & @benmmantle! This is the story of his very first solo adventure out on the track - clickety-clack! - and it's SO heart-warming. It's about having the courage to be independent, but also knowing you can always follow the track back home to mum and dad... ๐Ÿš‚๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŸ It's out in September! #choochootrain
