First author/ illustrator visit!

Book selfieWell, the Mighty Thumbslurp has been printed at last! To celebrate this momentous event, Janet and myself have just completed our first afternoon of workshops at John Scurr Primary School, Tower Hamlets.

I had rather a lot of fun drawing the improvised adventures of Amadeus Lovebunch who lives in a space station, picks his nose, sings and is terrorised by (alternatively) a flesh-eating goldfish and a magical kitten with a weak bladder.

I was also given the enviable task of drawing an Iron Cat leaping from Big Ben onto the houses of parliament which I’ve added to my sketches page before handing the drawing over to the school for their display (for the school project based on The Iron Man by Ted Hughes)
