colour pages from my book - the fox that couldn't skip

The fox is really cold with a drippy nose, alone in the woods and is trying to think of a way to warm up.

London Book Fair

I was at the Harbourside Market in Bristol at the weekend with my stall - selling my illustrations and other hand made delights and I was visited by a very lovely Chinese lady.  She invited me to the Chinese Forum at the London book fair as she said they are looking for people just like me!  So a few of us from Brillustration are going on a school trip to the London Book Fair!  I've never been before and I'm really excited.

Here are the two new prints I had on sale at the weekend.

printing monsters


Today I have been printing using the equipment at the drawn in bristol studio where I have a desk.  It's the first time I've done it on my own and once I got the hang of it there was no stopping me - not even the fact that the ink soaked through 2 layers of my clothing and I'm more inky than the paper.  No surface is left uncovered... the monsters have taken over!
