New book coming soon!

I'm getting ready to release a new picture book for September 1st, 2017. The fully illustrated book is called JOURNEY and is for 3-6 year olds. It's the first book I've illustrated myself, and its taken about a year to complete. The illustrations were created with acrylic on canvas, and when I lay them out on the floor they take up the majority of my living room.

I've just ordered the fourth proof - I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my work, and I'm hoping this will be the final proof and that the editing and tweaking of tiny details is finally over. Fingers crossed!

Here is a sneak peak of the front cover with the original artwork:

Two friends set off for an adventure in the sky. They travel through all kinds of weather before making it home again, but will they want to stay there after having had such a big adventure?

More soon,
