To infinity (actually, Bury St Edmunds)... and beyond!

Is anyone hungry? Because it's launch time! (Can you see what I've done there?) I've never launched anything in my life but tomorrow morning I shall be setting afloat my new book Just Because (which I may have mentioned before) in Waterstones in Bury St Edmunds. Truth is I've never even attended a launch before but if my knowledge of such things serves me correctly, and I believe it does, it shall involve the Queen smashing a bottle of plonk against my head followed by NASA blasting me into orbit. Should be fun.

In other news I've just finished the sequel to Just Because called Sometimes which should be on sale next year - here's a sneak-preview of some of the artwork:

And after my Just Because you-tubey wittering antics my publisher for Cub's First Winter asked for something similar so here it is (perhaps more of a blithering than a wittering this time though):

And I've just finished the text for a new book called 'Oli and the Last Dinosaur' - here's the cover
- not sure if I should have painted it rather than using this style though - what do you think?

And finally I've been interviewed by the lovely BookBag people - check it out here if you so wish, and Lovereading4kids have very kindly featured me as their Illustrator of the Month - Gawd bless 'em!

So that's it for now - I'll let you know how the launch went after I return to Earth.


  1. I knew there was something I forgot to order for tomorrow... a quick email to it is then!

  2. Ha! I know you could sort it m'dear - Mrs PR queen.
