Illustration Friday: Spent

All Billy's energy was spent!

Sorry I've been quiet for a couple of weeks - I've been away and am now desperately trying to write up new ideas as I'm visiting my publisher next week to discuss them...eek!

Remember there's only a couple of days left to enter my giveaway - it's definitely worth winning so please take a look here.

Illustration Friday: Spooky!

I know it's a bit silly but when I noted the word spooky down for this week's topic all I kept seeing was a pair of crazy glasses!

If you haven't already entered by biggest and best ever giveaway....please do! Just click here.

I thought I'd include my rough sketches too - you can probably tell they're done on an off-cut of scrap paper that was lying on my desk!

Coventry Inspiration Book Awards 2011

I had some brilliant news a few days ago - Not Me! has been shortlisted for the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards 2011 in the Never Too Young category (ages 0-4). The books are nominated by the public and then shortlisted for voting. You can see the other books on the shortlist here. The voting is like X-Factor as the books with the least votes are gradually knocked out - the winner is announced in March 2011!

Thanks to everyone involved for nominating and including Not Me! on the shortlist.

GIVEAWAY: My Biggest and Best Yet!!!

To celebrate the publication of Not Me! by Egmont USA on 12th October I am pleased to announce my latest giveaway. As it's a big one I'm leaving it open for 3 weeks so all entries must be in by midnight(GMT) on 31st October (Halloween)!

What you can win:
A signed hardback copy of Not Me! (UK first-edition) with a dedication of your choice
A set of promotional postcards
A sheet of stickers
2 handmade christmas cards
A small artwork featuring the Not Me! character of your choice done especially for you. This will be a one-off piece and therefore unique.



Two handmade christmas cards(may vary from picture as all individual).....

Pick a character for your own special artwork!

To win all you have to do is be publicly following this blog - if you're not following already just click on the Follow button in the right-hand side bar(that way I'll be able to contact you if you're the winner) and leave a comment below by the end of October. I'll pick a winner out of a hat once the giveaway is closed. It's that easy. Good luck!


I've spent the last week on holiday in Cornwall. Prepared for the worst weather, I took lots of work and reading with me but the sun shone everyday - so we made the most of it by walking miles (mostly uphill)! This sketch is of the view from a bench in Porthloe (on a hill)!

Not Me! US Edition is out on October 12th......

Illustration Friday: Transportation

The only way to travel as far as I'm concerned!
