Roughing it up!

The Summer holidays are officially over and I've spent the last week or so working on some roughs for my next Anne Fine book for the wonderful team at Barrington Stoke. Just finished up the last illustration and sent them off, so I'm on to the next project and also, hopefully, a bit of time to play with some new ideas.

As an aside, I still find it incredible that I get to illustrate for Anne Fine. As a child I loved her writing and I wouldn't have believed you if you'd said I'd end up drawing pictures for her books. Add to that the fact that she sends me the nicest emails about the artwork and it's one of those 'pinch me' moments...
