The Astronomer's Sun...

This is a trailer for an absolutely fantastic animation by my wonderful friend Simon Cartwright, and the lovely Jess Cope. I have to say I've had the pleasure of seeing the whole thing, and it actually made me shed a tear. You can't help but love teddy...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNoulgQ3wGA

Book Launch and exhibitions...

Well, lot's to tell! This saturday, the 22nd of May, will be the launch of my recently illustrated book, 'The Treasure at North Berwick'. The launch is being held at the Smokehouse Gallery, in Eyemouth in the Scottish borders. So if you're in the area, do pop in. I will be there signing books from about 10am - 3pm.


Also, the following weekend, will see the opening of 'The Berwick Book Illustrators' Exhibition, at the Gymnasium Gallery in Berwick - upon - Tweed. I will have 6 illustrations in the exhibition, from both 'The Sea Dancer at St Abbs', and 'The Treasure at North Berwick'. The Private View is on Saturday 29th May from 2-4.30pm. The exhibition runs from 29th May - 27th June. There is an exhibition of David Hockney's Grimm's Fairy Tales running at the same time, which sounds very interesting!

Last but not least...I've now got a facebook fan page up and running... so come and join up! I will be doing a bit of a give away, hopefully in the next week or so, so don't miss out.

Dala horse




I really want one of these, preferably a giant one...or a really tiny one! They are called dala horses, and come from Sweden. Apparently they are the must have Swedish handicraft and souvenir! Isn't this a lovely illustrated tile of one too.
