started work on an idea for a picture book that’s been floating around in my head since the summer. watch this space!
this crane is a character i’m developing at the moment for a picture book i’ll be working on over the next few months, along side quite a few other projects…. watch this space!
forgot to post this last week, but i finished my dummy book! ‘hopeless humphrey’ is all mocked up & ready to go.

spread number three, re-done
rough for the cover of my picture book, obviously needs text etc on the back/spine

the first double page spread of my picture book
little rough for the setting of my picture book
