The Phlunk Proofs have been delivered!

I cant even describe how excited I am, however I can't make head nor tail of which order they seem to have printed the pages in.. I've never received such a big box!

I am also hoping to do an 'Ask Me Anything' on Reddit in the next few days, to discuss my experiences of freelance illustration, and also as a young disabled person. Watch this space for more details.

As a final note, I've now changed my email address to .. go on, test it out!

The Ohh Deer Pillow Fight!

So it seems that the triumph of finishing my Children's Book has encouraged me to throw myself into being more creative. We all know I should be, but I just needed a little push in the right direction (thanks David). Below are my entries to the Ohh Deer Pillow Fight, wish me luck, and maybe you could enter too?

Please give me an extra push and maybe like or retweet my designs? I'd really appreciate the gesture.

Hurray! Hurray!

Its a beautiful sunny day today in Devon. I spent some time at the beach in Teignmouth with my faithful hound Cherry, and now, as I hope to see Tom Daley win Team GB another gold medal and plough through some scrumptious melon slices with David, I thought I should tell you some very exciting news...

After a very (very) long time, the children's book that I have been illustrating has finally been signed off, completed, and is on the printing press! Reach for a bottle of something chilled guys! Hurray!

"The Phlunk", written by Lou Rhodes of the band LAMB and I published our book in association with Strata Books, and I am completely over the flippin' moon!

We've had a tough time between me moving house & becoming settled with David, holidays and numerous Lamb/Solo tours, but now, book one is complete, and I am so excited for book 2.

Here's a snapshot or two of the printing proofs from Lou's iPad so the quality isn't great, but I don't want to spoil you guys, you can go buy your own copy soon enough :)

I can hardly contain my excitement!

Big news is coming this way very soon, but unfortunately it's all under wraps for a few more days yet. I'm itching to tell you!
