In honour of World Book Day I thought I'd post a few pics of some books I recently added to my groaning bookshelves. Last year on an art college reunion visit back to Maidstone, we also visited the lovely town of Rochester and stumbled upon a great old bookshop. It was full to the rafters with books and I made a beeline for the children's section and couldn't resist these. I was really pleased to find 'Jimmy wins a prize' with beautiful illustrations from 1946. The Owl and the Pussy-Cat dates from 1969 how cool is that psychedelic cat!
I am an illustrator living in the U.K, working mainly on editorial and publishing projects. I love to create fun and quirky illustrations with a 'fifties' flavour and this blog features my latest work and some of my inspirations.
