Just a quick note to say: This coming Sunday (8th Dec), my sister will be at the Harringay Christmas Market in North London selling her exceptionally cute handmade Christmas decorations (instagram pics here) + other crafty things. Suzy will also be selling my brand new greetings cards and copies of my illustrated book Asleep As The Breeze
If you can’t make it I have also added a limited number of greetings cards to my Etsy Shop here.

Hello, just in case anyone drops by, I’m working on a short story consisting of a number of images (no text though!) so there might be a slightly longer wait between illustration posts than normal. Hopefully it’ll be worth the wait!
Hi everyone, I hope you’re all having a lovely week!
I’ve turned almost all my attention to writing my new book this week so unfortunately I don’t have a new illustration to share - though one is certainly in the works!
It’s proven difficult to ascertain what shape my next book would take. 'Asleep As The Breeze' was, as is probably often the case, the product of a thousand thrown away ideas, a massive number of mistakes that I actually quite liked, some sleepless nights and a keen desire to strip things down to as simple a message as possible.
Since I released that only a few months ago I’ve been working on two new books in tandem, one of those - ‘The Butterfly Train’ (working title, an excerpt of which features at the back of 'Asleep As The Breeze') has recently raised it’s head out of the swirl of ideas that clutter my notebooks.
It might just, fingers crossed, be taking shape!
Currently standing at ~18,000 words it is a whole different beast to 'Asleep As The Breeze' (though it will be illustrated still) and I can’t wait to share it with you all…despite the huge amount of nerves that comes with being so involved in making something like this!
In the meantime if you like my illustrations please do take a look at my current book. It features illustrations throughout and numbered/signed copies (limited run of 200) are available through my Etsy shop.
