Ice from “Ice in the Jungle” has been travelling with me the last few weeks. These are her highlights from a few days in Seoul.

Don’t forget, you can get your own Ice here and take her on travels with you. Show her the world and all the beautiful things that are out there. Share your photos :)

Picture Book Launch! Ice in the Jungle

The book launch of my debut picture book took place at Daunt Books Holland Park on April the 14th and it couldn’t have been a more charming venue. A lovely traditional bookshop with a cute and well selected children’s and picture book collection.

It was a pleasure to see so many familiar and new faces and I felt very proud being able to present my book and give a reading. Thank you to all who came and joined in the fun!

Old and young enjoyed themselves on this mild evening and not many cupcakes survived. If you could not make it, here are some photos of what you have missed. There are a few signed copies of my book left at the shop and Amazon UK has finally restocked and you can order it from there or from the Child’s Play book shop. Please also if you like the book leave a review on those pages so others know a bit more about it :)

MA Children’s Book Illustration Graduate Show Photos 2015

The Children’s Book MA Graduate show is back in town!

I have been today and just as when I had my show last year, I could feel the excitement in the air. Again I have to say, that I believe this is one of the most notable art graduation shows in London, as it shows a vast variety and diversity of talent.

Most students have put together books, but you can also see, that they are all creative in lots of other ways. Many had handmade plush toys of their characters, printed fabrics and even glazed pottery and story rings.

The stories and characters are often quite wacky and humour is all around. There are plenty emotional stories as well, which explore fears and problems faced by us all, like for example Margarita Surnaite’s beautifully illustrated book “The Lost Book”. It deals with the fear of alienation and lack of direct communication of people due to too much use of modern technology. Some are just plain fun and silly like “Cinderella’s Tiara” by  Yu-Wen Huang, which made me laugh out loud, as it is about a lady gorilla who wants to win a beauty pageant.

When going to the show bring plenty of time as you will want to hop from book to book and will end up losing yourself immersed in illustrated wonderlands.  Below are some photos to whet your appetite or to at least get an idea of what you are missing.

The show is open from 10am till 6pm until the 14th of February (would that be a fun location for a Valentine’s date?) at the Candid Arts Trust Gallery. To learn more about the graduates check out the official website.
