2012 UKLA Book Awards Longlist

The Longlist for the 2012 UKLA Book Awards was announced a day or two ago. Some top names in there, and a bunch of really good illustrators too.
Like Emily Gravett, Oliver Jeffers, Viviane Schwartz, Catherine Rayner, Chris Haughton are a bunch who I really rate.
I shall have to check out any of the others I'm not so familiar with.

Here's a link. -

Good luck chaps

A Little Bit Bunny

I have been asked to contribute to the A Little Bit Bunny Blog, here -
Which is fabulous, and I'm really looking forward to it.

The blog is run by an impressive bunch of chaps - Damon O'Keefe, Eric Barclay, Chris Kennett, Matt Dawson, Kev Levell, froggie, Mr Toodle, Matt Soffe, and is themed to a different animal each month.
There's been some really good stuff posted, so I'm really chuffed to be invited to contribute.

I've been a bit slow off the mark, so am only just posting my first entry for October now.
But you can find it here, and it's for the theme of Dragons.

Do pop over and have a look.

Cozy Bears

I haven't posted in a while, I've been busy, which is good I suppose.
Dealing with Bears, a bulbous blue monster, kids, and a wolf.

But I shall post some bits of these, so you can have a bit of a look.
So, here we are, some cozy bears from a book I am working on.
These are initial sketches, and have changed through the development.
