Frankfurt Book Fair


This week it's Frankfurt Book Fair! I'm keeping fingers crossed for our little book, which is there with Barry Cunningham and Elinor Bagenal, who are introducing it to other publishers from all over the world!

Above is my sketch of Barry, with our book under his hat (which is where I presume he keeps it).




Also spotted this digi mock up of our book, by our cover artist Hannah Peck! So great to see it looking like a real book!


Barry in action at the fair! Amazing how he fits all those books under there. Must be Mary Poppins magic.

(Those purple envelopes he's holding are very special, I'll show you a close up next week!)

EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENTS!

Hey!

I'm so excited about these! :D

Just a quick update for now (more details soon!) but I just wanted to pop by and let you know that two of my upcoming books have recently been announced.

In February 2019 you can get your hands on The Midnight Hour by Benjamin Read and myself. It's published by Chicken House and there's also a film adaptation in the works by Altitude films!



You can read the announcement in The Bookseller HERE.

If you'd like one, please consider pre-ordering a copy! You can get it from Waterstones or Amazon and won't be charged until it's dispatched in Feb. (As a previous Waterstones bookseller, I'd also like to say you can go in to your local shop and pre-order from a nice bookseller there too!)

***

August 2019 sees the release of Batman: Nightwalker!
This project is extra fun for me because I'm working with my husband for the first time. Chris is penciling and inking, and I'm colouring his pages.

It's published by DC Ink, a DC young adult imprint. You can read a bit about the announcement at San Diego Comic Con HERE. 

Chris shares lots of sneak peaks on his instagram, which are awesome, if you want to check that out.

Here are a few little peaks at my coloured pages:

 






Hurray for books! :)

Personal work. 
A piece I made for my tree climbing, banjo playing, bird watching, yoga teaching friend. 


I used Redbubble to have it printed on a lined journal.
I have a little shop on there, just a few bits and bobs so far. Mainly stickers! :)

Falling behind on #mermay, but still squeezing them in when I can. Loved doing this. Must draw more silhouettes! :)

Somebody's discovered a little mermaid!


Had to skip a few days (because some very exciting things happened this week!!) but happy to fit in a mermaid today for day 12.

Sleeping mermaid sketch for day five of Mermay.

Had a great time today helping children with their drawing at Gosh!, for free comic book day :)
