Another book cover is in progress...

What am I doing at the moment? Another book cover - a light romance I think - for LTD books. I've done the portrait of the girl for the front, but will do the rest digitally. Should finish it sometime over the weekend. Check back here next week if you want to see a finished version.

"Inside a Snail's Shell"


Sometimes things in life get SO exciting that you almost need bricks on your head to stop you from jumping up and down! The child's book I illustrated 'Inside a Snail's Shell' maybe didn't win child's book of the year 2003 in the EPPIE awards (one of only 5 finalists) ... BUT a hard copy arrived this week in my 'snail' :) mail - it was just SO fabulous to see it in print!
What's more, now it has just been released, there is already one buyer (NO!!!! ... NOT me!!! :) ) - and they want a SIGNED copy - as they consider this book good enough to win the 'Caldicott'!!!
Is it JUST me? Or do others get such great things happening to them?

A wonderful teaching experience - art!

Again had a wonderful teaching experience. With students asking when my next class is. I had so much fun, and they said they did, too, as well as saying they learnt lots!
