Here's a piece I did for my friends Suzanne and Max's little daughter, Lulu. They're making a wall full of monster paintings in her bedroom, I hope it doesn't give her nightmares! Here are pieces by Rikke Asbjoern and Sylvain Marc who also contributed to Lulu's wall.

'Extraordinary X' is a short I was asked to design/art-direct about the letter 'X' for JibJab's StoryBots project. JibJab are creating a whole load of exciting original content for kids, everything from apps, ebooks, games and videos. There's some great stuff on their website already, and they're going to be producing a whole lot more in the future.
The JibJab team did an awesome job putting all this together and making the designs really come alive. Thanks to everyone at the studio and to Evan Spiridellis for getting me involved. It was fun to do and I'm looking forward to doing more with them in the future!
The short is below, followed by a bunch of screen grabs.

My super-talented fellow doodler, Rikke Asbjorn also did a piece for the show. Be sure to check it out on her blog and buy it before somebody else does!
Above there's a photo of my piece on the drawing board, and below it's all framed up! It's Gouache and ink on Watercolour paper, and will be available to buy at the Q-Pop store or through their website.

Here is the cover (bottom of post) and a bunch of black and white illustrations from a children's book of poetry called GRRR! by James Carter and Graham Denton, published by Macmillan. Out next year!
I went a bit more nuts with the colours than I normally do, but it came out kind of fun! Below is a version of the art showing a behind the scenes peek at the rough edges that get cropped for the final cover artwork. It almost looks like I'm a real painter, rather than a conjurer of digital fakery!
