Spring Forward

Robin & Lucienne Day:
Design and the Modern Interior

We popped over to the Pallant House Gallery in Chichester yesterday to see this great exhibition.
Entry is 2 for 1 with the April issue of Elle Decoration. The Gallery also has a lovely courtyard cafe-well worth a visit!

A few that got away!
Thorntons Coco Land

These are a few of my favourite sketches from the first stage of character development. It was decided that this style was too young for Thornton's target market.

The next stage of character development looked at slightly cheekier animals doing typical kids activities.

The new Coco Land range is currently being phased in to stores. I am looking forward to being able to show you more product and in store shots soon.

Kiss! and Giggle!
Published by Campbell Books

Kiss! and Giggle! are being published in the UK in May. The books are also going to be available in Taiwan, Greece and South Africa.
This is my 5th project with Campbell Books. I first worked with Campbell in 2004 on The Sparkly Christmas series of Board Books. I also worked on the Buggy Buddy Series. You can see some more of my published books here.
All Change!

Have been giving the toy cupboard a spring clean to make way for some new friends! The owl is by the Early Learning Centre. You can press one foot to move the hands on the clock and the other to open his eyes to reveal the time numerically. Open Your Eyes published in 1964 is a recent gift. Thank You x. It is written by Roz Abisch and illustrated by Boche Kaplan.

I love this Slush Puppie cup that I picked up at the weekend. I can't remember how long I have had the little sweet box but it reminds me of my childhood.

Waiting for feedback on a project today I had a sudden urge to draw babies-like you do! Have been working on a lot of animal commissions recently.
Flicking channels yesterday evening I spotted a repeat of Knight Time on the CBeebies Bedtime Hour. I said to my sons 'Look! Mummy's drawings are on the TV!' They were very unimpressed. My youngest replied 'Can I play with the hoover now?'

Watch out there's a Tiger about!!
A new character I have been working on this week for my print range.
He is as yet unnamed. I would love any suggestions!
Riso Monte Bianco

I picked up this lovely packaging on holiday several years ago. I can't remember where! Maybe one of you will recognise it?!
