Go Kart Go

A before and after illustration for harcourt publishers for a book I am doing at the moment. The first one was a sample page to show them the possible style of the work and the second illustration is the finished piece with their feedback and comments applied! They wanted less going on,less of the dangerous material lying around (nails,open paint etc..)

Behind you!

This is an illustration literally finished in the last 5 minutes. Self promotional work day today to add to my portfolio. This work in progress does exactly what it says on the tin, I've always enjoyed drawing scary things and the look on the child wondering what is going Bump! in the middle of the night :o) Mwahahahaha
Thinking of possibly turning this concept into a Children's book so watch this space for development..

Kids in the Park

Children's book self promotional image that was handed in this morning to my agent after some tinkering with my new style that has been developing over the past year.

Pass the Jelly,Nelly

Illustration from my recently published book called 'Pass the Jelly Nelly'. Had the FedEx dude call this morning with a package and I hadn't a clue what it was, nice surprise to see it was 10 copies of this book that was only finished in November.
It's an Educational book teaching kids using a word bank to complete the sentences on each page. Published by Blue Apple December 2007..

Flinty McGinty welcomes you to my Blog!

So this is my Blog! Wow I hear you say... :o) It will contain new/old pieces of work, plus some work in progress from time to time! Using this to document my year in 2008 and to illustrate(no pun intended) to people what goes on in an illustrators head and life during a typical year!
Next books to be in print are 'Pass the Food,Dude' and 'Best Friends' so keep a look out for them! I will try and update it as much as possible...

This particular sample was sent in to my agency for a possible project for Egmont. It's a book called ' Flinty McGinty and the Blown Away Day' An extremely fun and interesting story about one old man and his mission to get his scruffy dog 'McGonagall' to the 'Pooch Parlour' for his birthday treat. But something tries to get in his way on his journey through town.

Not long also to the big move into my new studio! Exciting times!!
