New Book Alert!

Got a nice package through the post just before I left for LA again from Usborne. Spent a few months last year designing and part illustrating this title - Animal Alphabet Activity Book. This book is great for teaching children the alphabet, phonics awareness and pen control through numerous activities including puzzles, colouring, doodling and lots of things to spot. Sarah Horne's illustrations are as quirky as ever, and this is one very satisfying doodle-in book!
Available for pre-order from Amazon - or from the Usborne website from 01/06.
Here's a sneaky peek at a few spreads.

School doodles

Recently, I was asked to do some doodles for a school back in my hometown of Liverpool. Rudston Road County Primary was actually the school I attended from the ages of 4 - 10, so I was delighted to be asked to do something for the school website, prospectus and correspondence material. Think a few of them have popped up throughout the school too. Slightly different feel to this artwork, something I'm trying out. Here's a few examples of the final pieces.
