I’m counting down the days, as in the next two weeks two new books are out!
The first is a BIG ONE! The Book for Happy Hearts by Maggie Hutchings and published by Affirm Press is a big 120 pages, a treasury of poems, stories and activities. It was so fun to illustrate with such varied subject matter, and we had the design wonder Kristy Lund-White working with us. It’s kind of arrived at the perfect time here as we are a little flat with remote learning and lockdown, and started doing the activities today! We hope it brings lots of happy hearts out to play.
The second, arriving just a few days later is Peek and Boo. Written by Coral Vass and published by Windy Hollow Books, this one is a sweet tale about two owls and their egg. I got to experiment by combining my big painted canvases with the illustrations, and I love how to it turned out!
It’s been quite a year (again) and despite the challenges of lockdowns and remote learning and the rest, I’m so chuffed I still get to do my beloved job illustrating children’s books! I hope you like these new titles.
