There are no words for my relief and joy tonight! I have finished my book. For the last 6 weeks I have worked till 2am (on average ) to get it done and used every moment I reasonably could. I feel like I did 4 months work in one. It’s been crazy. And in the [...]
Here’s a new bit of the book I’m working on Pterodactyls! I was working late last night with music playing and the pen flying. So much fun!

Here’s what I’ve been working on for the last few months. This is just a little bit of work in progress of my new book which I’m doing in my Moleskines style. It’s intense work and they are pretty big pictures. The book is set in a city full if surreal and cool stuff.

The calendar comprises of twelve images, a mixture of paintings and drawings, and enough space to write (if you want to actually use it as a calendar). I just love having changing artwork [...]

What else could I draw on such a cold day? It’s been so long since I awarded myself some time aimless drawing time in a cafe and I have to say it is good for the soul. This one is done with my lovely brush pen (the one that holds the ink inside it). It [...]
Well a number of things… I’m hard at work finishing off my preparation for a couple of workshops at the ALEA conference in Hobart this weekend. I’ll be talking about the idea of picture books that are designed to have multiple meanings – that is, the text and illustrations leave spaces for the reader to [...]
