Still working on the kids book... Now it is a VW camper. I have wondered if my illustrations are too detailed. But they are how I draw - I just hope they go with the writing... Sorry the photo is bad but we have storms here and it is effecting the light badly.
The book has made it - right on time the proof has hit the mat. There ae issues already but they are all easy fixes. I'm surprised it is as small as it is but happy that it is a good-looking book. Now it is with the editor - let's see what she makes of… Continue reading It’s here

It's almost ready to go for a proof print and after the disaster of yesterday I am happy to say that the cover is coming along well... What do you think?
