Darkstuff from the Crypt
I helped a friend out with the poster for their new production recently: 'Darkstuff from the Crypt' 6 monologues from the crypt of St Paul's church in Bristol - ghostly tales! It's a walkabout 'promenade' theatre production, a guide meets us at the top and takes us down into the chilly depths of the crypt... nearly sold out, just a few tickets left for thursday!

It seems everything really does happen at the same time!

Yesterday (3rd feb) was the publishing day of 'I Spy Something Wonderful', the picture book I illustrated written by David Conway, published by Random House (Red Fox). It's about a family of deer who go for a walk in the meadow playing a game of I Spy.....I finished working on the book nearly 2 years ago, so finally the wait is over!
 It's available from a variety of different places, take a *look!*

Also, yesterday was the private view of the exhibition I am taking part in in London - Falmouth Illustration: The Retrospective. I studied illustration at Falmouth College of Arts, graduated nearly 6 years ago, and our course leader has organized this exhibition for all past illustration graduates.

I am exhibiting the sequence of little tiger putting on his pyjama's from 'Time for Bed, Tiger', written by Hannah Wilson, published by Templar:
 It's on at The Illustration Cupboard, London till 12th February. Then we hope to take it New York!
