Coming Soon – New Book

I’m starting to plan my next book, Sam and the Dragon Egg.

I’ve done the bulk of the writing so it’s time to get sketching! Watch this space for updates. Meanwhile, Bird is still available here.


Bird Is Live

My first picture book, Bird, has just gone live on the iBooks store.

It’s a lovely read for younger children, perhaps between 4 and 7, and  jolly reasonable price! If you buy and enjoy Bird, please help spread the word on Facebook, Twitter etc. and leave a review.

Portfolio Update


I have made some minor changes to my portfolio. If you need some print design or illustration you should take a look. Click the image above or use the menu bar link..

At last the children’s book is finished!

All the illustrations are now complete for my children’s book project.

Now all I need a publisher!

I would be pleased to hear from anyone who can put me in touch with a reputable children’s book publisher, or indeed from a publisher themselves.

The book is about a Bird who is different from other birds. A newcomer to the neighbourhood tries to help the Bird to fit in, but the Bird’s differences win the day. It’s a heart-warming tale for 5-7 year-olds with friendly illustrations but not overly moralistic.

Here’s another picture to whet your appetite!

Greeting Cards

So, during a slight lull in business, I am trying to create some extra work. On top of the two book projects I’m developing, that is! I’m considering revisiting the greeting card market. Having completed a set of designs some years ago for a commission, I look at them now with nostalgia. Critically, however, they’re not brilliant. The gags are a little surreal in nature. On top of that my artwork is now considerably improved and I feel I could probably do a lot better. I’m not sure my sense of humour has improved to the same degree, however, but I’m perhaps better at knowing where to draw the line! Now the hard work begins – new designs and finding buyers. A daunting prospect.

Now my initial problem is the designs. Humour? Contemporary art? Typography? So many avenues to choose between. I’ll get some sketches done and work from there.

However, if you know a buyer or publisher of card designs, do get in touch through the Keep In Touch page!

The project continues



More images from the Bird project coming soon!


Work is coming on nicely for my picture book project. I’m planning to publish in both digital and print formats, so watch this space.
