Sketches of figurines

I drew these Staffordshire figurines at the Bowes Museum a few weeks ago. I only had this little A5 sketchbook with me, so I am going to go back soon armed with bigger paper. The figurines are beautiful, but I love the labels too. I am thinking of making them into screen prints, I think they'd work quite well as screen prints.

How to Hide a Lion is out now!

Hi everyone,
Today is a big day, my new book, 'How to Hide a Lion' is published. For anyone who lives in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Berrydin Books will have some very soon. For everyone else, it is available in all good bookshops, and Asda too!

Can you see? Axel Sheffler (of Gruffalo fame) has written a lovely review for the front. It says 'Funny and warmhearted. I loved reading it with my daughter.' Isn't that fantastic?
It has already sold in 7 territories, so I am very happy!
