Lawrence and the Dinosaur trees!

Here's some more development of a character I'm developing for a picture book. I've been struggling a bit with the words so thought I'd develop Lawrence a bit more visually!(see earlier post-Lawrence)


Here's a little chap I came up with last week for another story I've got in my head. It could go many ways at the minute as it is still slightly ambiguous!

A Visit to Edinburgh

This illustration is taken from "Beware! Low Flying Rabbits"(pub. Macmillan 2011), a recent 2nd poetry collaboration with Roger Stevens. As always,great fun to do!

Captain Beardybones!

A couple of years ago,I worked on a series of pirate based stories for the lovely people at Orchard! 
I thought I'd revisit the subject recently and see how I could improve on characterisation. 
Captain Beardybones was the result!


Last year,I set up my own greetings card company, Rootytoot and these are just 4 designs from the launch range,"Jolly!"There are currently 30 designs in the range. Please e-mail for more info!

Black and White bits!

These are illustrations taken from "On my way to school I saw a Dinosaur" by Roger Stevens (published by A&C Black-really enjoyed doing this book!
