Les Sports

Hardly my favourite thing in the world but this lovely book by Alain Grie, given to me by the talented Caitlin Hinshelwood, is so fantastic I could be converted to a sporty type. Particularly fond of the wrestlers....


I recently illustrated the cover of Paddle by Jasper Wynn which is published by Sort Of Books. The book itself just arrived in the post!

La Vie En May

I spent last weekend with the most talented Carrie May at Harmony Cottage in Gloucestershire. We wandered in the fields and drew flowers in the garden.
