I'm happy to announce that I'm currently working on a picture book project! I can reveal imagery and details when we're ready to publish this Summer, and I can't wait to showcase not only my own work, but also the lovely writings of my collaborative partner! And on an even further exciting note, this story heavily features animals and nature - my favourite subject matter! So for a bit of research (and an excuse to hop on the train to London) I took an inspiration trip to the Natural History Museum.
I met with a friend and fellow illustrator/travel buddy Michael (check out his instagram) and after an amazing banana and oats breakfast smoothie from Natural Kitchen in Waterloo station, we were ready for our daring adventure to the most popular musuem in London - on a weekend. CHILDREN ERRYWHERE.
It was a a success though and I took lots of reference material for my new book characters, and it's always great to visit the dinosaurs of course.
I'll keep you posted on the book project, and now I've moved into my new home studio (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) I can crack on properly in my own space (blog post / studio tour to follow when everything's in place!)
