Pixies!

I adapted this drawing for the Pixies t-shirt competition on BBC Radio 6 for a bit of fun (yep, I'm not eligible because I make my living from drawing / designing stuff) Still a great band & off to see them tonight in London!

Daemon with a balloon.

Sketchbook things.

Facing my Daemons...

Guardian Childrens Books published a lovely article based on the daemons from Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy with various illustrators drawing theirs.
Here's my quick sketch, my daemon being an alarmingly permed yeti armed with a carrot & stick & a book marked 'Good Intentions'.

(psst! I have plenty more daemons I feel! Watch this space...)

Yeti in a Tutu

I'm supposed to be counting receipts today. This was more fun!

Kimono dragon!

A friend of mine said that his son & him had been discussing the existence of the Kimono dragon & wondered if I knew anything about it.

I did.

Of COURSE they exist!

Silly Name for a Monster - publication day!


 'Silly Name for a Monster' written by Timothy Knapman & illustrated by me is out today published by Scholastic.

'Once upon a time if you wanted to be a hero, you had to have a proper, hero-sounding name. And if you wanted to be a big scary monster, it was no good unless your name was big and scary too. But when all the proper-sounding heroes can't defeat the most menacing monster in the kingdom, the king offers his whole kingdom to whoever can beat it. Could Stinkpot succeed? Even with such a silly name?'

It's got scary monsters, heroes, donkeys, knights in pink frilly knickers & INCREDIBLY SILLY NAMES! I think you should go out & buy it!

You can order it from here or preferably get your best pair of pink frilly knickers on pop into your local bookshop & get it there!
