The Brockenspectre



Today I was very happy to walk into Heffers Children's Bookshop and see Linda Newbery's new book, The Brockenspectre, on the shelf. I was lucky enough to be illustrating it this summer. It is my 2nd book illustrating one of Linda's texts - the first, Lob, was published in 2010. 

You can read more about Linda Newbery here:


And the first review of the book can be seen here:


Here are some examples of the illustrations in place in the book:










And here are examples of pages where I worked out roughs or character studies, or scanned artwork out of the sketchbook pages...

Selkie's Drawing



I have just been sent this beautiful drawing by a young artist called Selkie. She has just finished reading The Ransom of Dond and did this drawing on an ipad. I love these crashing waves and smoke from the house - both things I wish I had thought of when I was illustrating the book. Thank you, Selkie.
