Whale in the Bath

I have got my solo exhibition coming up very soon, March 19th-24th. I will post up the flyer and poster I have done soon. So I found some time to do another 'solo' piece with the show in mind.

Claude written by Will Brenton

These are a couple of samples I have been working on currently with Will Brenton, (who wrote Elephant White). More amazing tales have come my way and here are the very early visualizations of the text.

Claude- Rickety Rocket sample 2

Rags to Ritches sample

I've recently done this sample for a story called Rags to Riches, which is being taken to Random Hse. There are exciting plans for these dolls to be manufactured and celebrities and clients with design their clothing. It's early days with this project so I'll keep you posted (insufficiently I am sure)

E. White 'Mouse Circus' smaple.

... Into the New year and nose to the grindstone. Here's another taster of things to come with the development of Elephant White. Meetings have occurred...exciting times ahead.


Over Xmas in France with the family. I relaxed over this painting and took my time, a luxury that I don't have any more with painting. I enjoyed every cathartic brush stroke.

The Artfile; x16 Xmas card range

...just a taste of the x16 card range I have just completed with the Artfile. This is my third range with The Artfile. To see more please go to;

Comission for Archie Ahern

This was a commission I did for Archie just before Xmas for a friend of his. I hope she liked it.

Toy Train

...just a little artist time... solo work being good for my soul.

Lucy & Elephant White sample 2

Elephant White sample

Around November I got a email from a lovely man called Will Brenton, Director of Wish Films and producer of many other creative enterprises. He had sent me over some of the most beautiful stories he had written. Since this joyful day, with the help of my amazing agent Ellie Wharton, the stories have landed in the nurturing hands of publishing co. Templar and the book is due to go ahead this year. There are no words to describe quite how exciting this new venture with Will and these stories is... watch this space.

Organic Bike

This was a little something for my best friend (the lovely) Becca Rose, who moved to Bristol last year and she inspired this piece... so I gave it to her as a house warming gift.

Alfie Hop samples with Andersen Press Ltd.

I have been working on a new story with Andersen Press Ltd. who are publishing Annie Hoot in April. Here are the samples of the new character, 'Alfie'.

'The Big Bouffant' with Lerner Publishing Ltd.

Here are the samples that I did for a book with a US based publishing co. Lerner LTD.
They liked them and the book is going ahead this year and book 2 to follow after.

First Class spread

I have once again been neglecting updating my blog. I've had way too much on my plate. But I've been poorly and I am lying in bed and finally doing some much needed posting!

...SO many changes have been made and here's the final result of the Ballet book spread.
Last week I was up in London and had a mega meeting with Calrton ltd. where we were finalizing all the spreads. This book is now in full swing and is going to be GREAT!
