New Book - Dear Mr Mountain Man

I had the pleasure to illustrate this new book called Dear Mr Mountain Man, Letters to Scott Grizzly Sorensen. I thought these letters from school kids across the American West and Mr Mountain Man's replies were a perfect match for my illustrations...So here's the result, a very funny and charming book I can highly recommend! Buy it here!

New work - Persil campaign

I got to illustrate the 7 Wonders of Childhood for a Persil campaign, and according to their research these are Legoland, Pyramids, London Eye, Safari, Harry Potter World, Hollywood, and Castles.

New Work - One Day by Bloomsbury

This book has been published whilst I was away!
Lots of different kids from different countries are featured doing everyday activities across the globe, very interesting to illustrate!
"One Day follows fifteen different children from around the world through a 24 hour period. Not only will readers learn about their different lives and cultures, but they will also discover how time zones work, and what's happening on one side of the world while the other sleeps. This is a fantastic and accessible introduction to the concept of time and time zones for a younger audience. It also containing extra material exploring how time is measured and why."
Difficult to choose which ones to share...here are just a few, featuring South Africa, USA, Canada, India, China, Portugal and lots more:
