Hairball of Horror!

Just received this through the post I was commissioned to re-cover the Space Mutts series of books by Michael Broad published by Macmillan a while back so I designed the main text & drew the mean cats, bewildered poodle & the eponymous hairball(!)

Note to publishers - it really keeps a humble illustrator happy if you actually send copies of the books / magazines we've illustrated to us - unfortunately there's plenty of you out there who don't bother (you KNOW who you are!) - it's really nice to have the actual book in your hot little hands!

Cats & dogs

A (fighting) cat & dog rescued from a sketchbook left in a tent in a rainstorm - there is a moral here somewhere re. camping & illustration...probably. A memento of a particularly British summer.

Cerberus the hound of hell (or a hell of a hound)

I had the delight last week of seeing some very talented kids at the Discover Childrens Story Centre drawing their versions of Cerberus after some superhero / Greek mythology related drawing workshop shenanigans. Have been pondering the disadvantages of owning a three headed dog since then... imagine the food bills : (

Butcher's Dogs

'When it gets too hot for comfort
And you can't get an ice cream cone
T'ain't no sin to take off your skin
And dance around your bones'

Troll pic-nic

Had completely forgotten drawing this & stumbled across it this morning - it was part of a story that I never finished writing a few years back...maybe I should finish it, watch this space...

'Look Mom, no hands!'

...this would be very ruinous to my career.

That's all.
(maybe eschew the pork mittens next time?)

dogs in jumpers


A chihuaua, in a pink jumper? Aren't there organisations out there to stop this sort of thing?
