September 2016 – gearing up for an exciting East-West US tour with Tiz & Ott’s Big Draw  in October,  and sharpening up for drawing duos and more  in London at the ever-amazing South Ken Kids Festival  November.  See below – and for more detail – go to my Events page!

Meanwhile – the fun site, kidcandoodle  contacted me to inaugurate a new column – their   “Drawn Out” interview – great fun and an honour too!  I had to reply  to their questions with some quick drawings.  Can you guess what the question was to this reply I drew?   Questions and answers here!

BOOK NEWS

Les Contes à Colorier  out this Spring 2016  (my “Draw Along Tales“) have already sold out!   I adapted 4 well known stories so  kids can help the characters along their way – as well as colour them in.  So I’m starting work on 2 more Tales to add to the collection for a reprint of 6 titles in 2017.
