Mr Penguin starts his day...

I seem a bit obsessed at the moment with drawing characters in bed...
It's probably because I have some big deadlines looming and I'm very, very tired! When my next picture book is finished I'll make sure I follow Mr. Penguin's lead and have a cup of tea in bed and catch up with the big wide world out there!

On the phone to Grandma...

Poor thing - she's not feeling very well. Mr. Cat is enjoying himself though!
Hopefully Grandma will be over soon to administer cake, 
tea and hilarious stories about how they know Kung Fu*...

More experimenting with this picture. 
Am really enjoying working with my sparkly new Wacom tablet!**

*my grandmother does this...

A little doodle. Trying something new.

P.s. I would like a penguin please.

Feathered Friends

There's an autumnal tinge to the air. Only slight, but it's there and I can feel it. 
My poor bike (Walter) has been neglected since I moved house, but I think it's time to dust him down, pump up the tyres and go for a cycle. It's not quite as autumnal up here as it is in this picture, but it will be soon I reckon!

This is quite a large painting I created whilst waiting for the most enormous Photoshop files to save for my new book. I've had to piece the image together on screen as I'm still looking for a big scanner!
