- Hi, welcome to my blog, which is essentially a showcase for my illustration work. Please note my 'more professional' Cargo Collective website is only a click away (see the link on the right). All work is under copyright to me, so get in touch if you want to use it.

Written by my mother and illustrated by me, Grandma's Box of Memories was published this weekend just gone. More info on the book is available at: http://www.jkp.com/catalogue/book/9781849055178
To quote the website, This beautifully-illustrated story helps to explain dementia to children aged 4 to 7 years in a gentle and engaging way, and prompts discussions about what children can do to help a grandparent living with dementia. It is an ideal starting point for family discussions and a book that dementia care professionals will want to recommend to the families they work with.

Hi all...I've uploaded a new version of 'International Break' for two reasons.
1 - The World Cup starts in two days, so I'm jumping on the bandwagon!
2 - A couple of people told me the original post was too small to read. I'm hoping this format will be easier. Feel free to let me know if it is/isn't.

Spent the evening at a cracking event, 'Quickdraw' at the House of illustration in Kings Cross organised by Off Life (http://offlife.co.uk/2014/03/event-quickdraw-live/). Basically this involved a room full of scribblers doing spontaneous 15-minute drawings based on themes announced on the night (I've hashtagged the themes in mine - the ones above are those I'm most pleased with). Will def be going again!

Wow, I haven't posed anything for a while. My Excuse is that I have been working on a larger project. More on that in June. Anyhow, here's something I took a while to rustle up. I hope at least a few of you are football fans (or have the misfortune to spend a lot of time with one), or this may not make that much sense!
