Jesus is tempted in the wilderness

Every Shrove Tuesday we are reminded how Jesus was tempted in the wilderness by the devil with a pancake (or something like that)

Fat Tuesday...

Fat Tuesday - mind that lard!

The Economist Feb 7th - An Investor Calls

 I was commissioned to produce these illustrations for The Economist for an article called 'An Investor Calls' about the impact of certain hedge fund activists on businesses - you can read this far more eloquently in the original article
My idea of 'activist' was rather different to what the article was actually speaking about but once I'd been put onto the right track (no V for Vendetta masks et al!)  I had decided to make the activist female in the original roughs but was informed that all the activists the journalist had researched & spoken to were men so this was duly amended in the final illustration - here's a before / after for your edification

Bash Street Bandits - Puffin Virtually Live



Had great fun this afternoon drawing for the Puffin Virtually Live event for the publication of the new Diary of Dennis the Menace book at Sadlers Wells with charming Dennis the Menace author Steven Butler & former Blur Peter presenter the lovely Helen Skelton. (ok, it's very childish of me but that's BLUE PETER! So cool!)

I got to demonstrate to the audience the fine art of drawing Dennis' best friend, the one and only Gnasher with some great audience results too! (might be out of a job if I'm not careful!) Here's a couple I managed to get photos of.


Dennis the Menace - Bash Street Bandit!


Somebody out there is OUT-MENACING THE PRANKMASTER GENERAL! Dennis the Menace has to use all his super secret agent detective skills to find this Bash Street Bandit & prove to everybody that he's the most menacing menace of all Beanotown!

The 4th book in the Diary of Dennis the Menace series 'Bash Street Bandit!' written by Steven Butler & illustrated by me is out today (Thursday 5th February)
There's some detective work...
...& a healthy dose of burping & farting

Nothing as joyful as pants on a tiger in it's natural habitat!
