One of my most boring hobbies is walking around the woods and taking bad photos of logs and moss. But when I combined them with my recent Lord of the Rings drawings, MAGIC happens!
What an amazing week!
My books - Meet the . . . Ancient Romans and Meet the . . . Ancient Egyptians came out in shops on Thursday! It was very surreal seeing them on shelves after working and waiting for so long, but the reception has been so good. Check Amazon or your local book shop if you'd like a look!
Hey bloglings, another of my few-and-far-between updates!
Been pretty quiet on here for the past few months, and soon it'll be clear why. For the past year I've been working on what has essentially been my dream project ever since I started illustrating books. It's a new series that I've written and illustrated, all about people from the past. Beginning with Egypt and Rome, these are bold, high-end, 64-page books with minimal text and just the cool facts. Perfect for kids who aren't ready for lots of text but want some of the gruesome details about fighting and bum-wiping.
My illustration style has been pushed to the max in these and it really is the work I've always wanted to do. I can't thank the team at Big Picture Press enough for pushing me to go all out with these. I went to see the proofs last week and they are GLORIOUS.
I can't wait for you to see them in January. You'll see them from a mile off - they have neon Pantone covers too! And if you think this is cool, wait til you see what else is in store...

I've been super busy on my (re)debut picture books recently, and finally I'm beginning to see what The Shining was all about.
