Squirrel Brain

Every summer, I cultivate a dense grove of sunflowers in my backyard. And every September morning, I drop the toothbrush, run down the stairs, and chase the damn squirrels away.

Another Cold Case Kids book

I’ve been working for most of the summer on the follow-up Cold Case Kids young adult novel. In 2015, I designed and illustrated Ghoul’s Gold – The Mystery Of The Chantry Island Treasure. Author Doug Archer asked me to work with him again on the follow-up, The Phantom Menace – The Mystery of the Southampton Shipwrecks. The book will be out in September 2018.

It has been an big project, with lots of elements. Here are a few samples:

Me And My Monster

Me And My Monster is my personal favourite painting. It started out as a tiny doodle. I really like the 70s colours and the cautious expressions.
