mmm the smell of fresh books


This was a book I illustrated this year with Usborne , I am very happy with how it turned out. It also stirs up some grumpy emotions as well; due to a scheduling error at my old job I ended up having to do two story boards simultaneously while doing this (sigh) , but that's done now thank goodness!


For those of you in the Toronto area my friend and colleague Sam Bradley, with a group of super talented artists, have put together yet another amazing collection of stories in the Anthology Project available at TCAF. I'm totally getting my copy signed....AGAIN!
that's it for now
