Wonderful news this week. Roodica The Rude and the Famous Flea Trick by Margaret Ryan, has been selected for the Richard And Judy Children's Book Club in partnership with WHSmith and The Book Trust.

It appears alongside five other books in the Read Together section, and launches today.

Very much enjoyed illustrating the Roodica series. Very funny text. Loved scribbling all that messy hair!

Keep peeling your eyes for this in WHSmiths!

Recent work

I've just finished a couple of big projects - a new book for my Italian publisher Edizioni Corraini, and illustrations for Basel Kantonal bank annual report. Can't really post anything until they're out, but in the meantime here are a couple of recent pieces for Valore Alimentare magazine and Mother and Baby magazine. Currently working on my images for the first Gumbo book 'Blue Suede shoes', more to come on that very soon!
