the news section

By "news" of course, we mean that which is new. Information, projects, ideas, that sort of thing. Maybe sometimes now and then you might find the "recent" and occasionally something quite "old" might find its way on to these pages. Possibly it could be in the form of an illustration, or perhaps I"m just behind the curve in some way. Enjoy.

Following close on the heels of the aforementioned camping book, and this little book about a boy wizard and a magical boarding school comes Garth Nix’s One Beastly Beast (Two Aliens, Three Inventors, Four Fantastic Tales). Published by Harper Collins, this is a collection of four stories. I made the cover design and all the interior illustrations. It was fun to get to draw pirate rats, slimy aliens, mouse pilots, robot monsters, sea serpents, penguin girls, and a princess based on my very own daughter. And the stories are a lot of fun to read, as well.
Grown-ups will like it too, as the photo shows.
