Here's the original sketchbook piece drawn on a beautiful September afternoon on a table outside The Nag's Head in Walthamstow, one of my local pubs. I feel like the cold beer & sunglasses rather add to the whole vibe!

It was rather exciting to receive the proof of 'Two Terrible Vikings' my collaboration with the brilliant Francesca Simon which is due to be published in February 2021 by Faber Children's.
I'm extremely excited about these books, they were a real joy to draw & prompted many laugh out loud moments while I was working which is always a great sign.
I've become rather fond of the terrible Viking twins Hack & Wack, along with Bitey Bitey their pet wolf cub & their other friends & can't wait to be able to share more with you all!

I had great fun illustrating this, it's a big colourful action-packed riot, allowing me to reference '50s B-movie posters, 2000ad comic, numerous baked goods & sneaky Half Man Half Biscuit references to boot!
*The title actually came from Phil's eldest son betting him that he couldn't turn a daft title of his choice into a published book & here it is!

(this is originally a pen, ink & wash drawing from my sketchbook which has been coloured & adjusted in Photoshop but I'm never sure who is interested in this bit. I've been having a lot of fun drawing these & adding the special guests in the audience. There's more wrestling here if you want it grapple fans!)
