Alfie Hop character samples....

I had a meeting on Wednesday with Andersen Press about a follow on book from my first picture book Annie Hoot. The story still needs a lot of work, so we will see where it goes. But I just thought I would share with you the color character samples all the same.

Yarn @ The Nursery

Sarah Dennis and I embraced the impromptu challenge of working with a group of very talented actors on Friday night at the Nursery. We worked on easels along side the actors producing live illustrators from words thrown out by the audience. After the interval classical band, The Waverley Keys performed 5 songs. Sarah and I took to the stage again producing live illustrations along to 3 of their tunes. Titles for the songs were formed from our drawings. The evening was Mad, Exciting, innovative.... and we are defiantly going to do more! I'll keep you posted for the next Yarn event.

@ The Papered Parlour open Studio weekend...

... It was a huge amount of fun down at The Papered Parlour open studios event. Thanks to everyone who came down to show their support and especially to those who purchased a card or a print. Cake was consumed, tea round the clock and Bassy Fox (my boy) strummed and sang lovely lyrical tunes in the afternoons...
