New Style!

In uni I was always concerned about style. Mostly because I didn't seem to have one, or at least not one that I could see. I put this down to the fact that I'm inspired by lots of different things from Japanese ukiyo-e to Brian Wildsmith's heavily textured work; sometimes my work would go one way and sometimes it would go the other; it doesn't worry me so much anymore as I think the main thing is to being able to reproduce a 'look' if you want to. Over the past 2 years I've been developing a couple different styles with the help of publishers and my agents, and today I've done a sample in a new one. Hope you like!

The Mighty Artichoke

I have been racking my brains trying to think of a good ending for my second picture book with Nosy Crow. Today I decided to take a break and do a bit of printmaking instead. The mighty artichoke.
