House Portraits

Monday 27 February 2023


I recently bought myself a copy of Making Comics by Lynda Barry and I've started working through the exercises, which begin with monsters. I was enjoying coming up with different ways to draw them, so decided to fill a spread with lots of different monsters, having no plan and making them up as I drew. 

Not sure which is my favourite, maybe the alien looking thing with long spirally arms, on the left?! Although the fluffy one on the right hand page with big eyes keeps looking at me!

BBC TINY HAPPY PEOPLE - Some of my latest illustrations

I thought I'd share some of my illustrations I've worked on recently for BBC Tiny Happy People. I've been working with this super special client for a few years now and I'm grateful that we have such a good relationship.

It's always fun to work with their bold colour palette and add humour and warmth to their parenting briefs. It's given me lots of practice for drawing lots of babies and toddlers too!

I was over the moon when this Father's Day post
last year got such an amazing response!

PUBLISHING DAY for Be Confident Be You - The Teenage Guide

Last week was publishing day for Be Confident Be You! I absolutely loved illustrating this book for Becky Goddard Hill, published by Harper Collins. 

The book is a sequel to Be Happy Be You, a book I also illustrated the spot illustrations for. It means a lot to me to work on wellbeing topics for children and young adults - the memorable tools and exercises in these books can make such a big difference and their effects can last a lifetime.
