It's like buses no blog posts for 2 months... and then 4 come at once!!! I am busy busy painting...excuses excuses!


Lucy and Henry Are Twins is published by Two Lions (Amazon Publishing) and written by the widely published author Elizabeth Winthrop.


'Lucy and Henry are brother and sister. They may be twins, but that doesn't mean they do everything the same way.' 'Delightful illustrations and simple rhythmic text combine to make a wonderful first book for twins...'

I Love You, Blankie
By Sheryl Haft

The author Sheryl Haft has done an amazing job publicising I Love You, Blankie. Sheryl recently held an event in her hometown New York and these are just a few of the photos from what looked like a really fun book party.

 I absolutely love the Blankie Baby puppet! It is so exciting to see my illustrations literally brought to life. Thanks Sheryl and thanks to the puppeteers and performers.

I Love You, Blankie.
By Sheryl Haft

 Click on images to enlarge.
I Love You, Blankie, beautifully written by Sheryl Haft and published by Little, Brown and Company goes on sale in the USA today! It will be available in the UK shortly.


I Love You, Blankie is a great bedtime story for little ones. 'A flowing sail, a hot air balloon, a fluffy cloud, a glowing moon. With a little imagination a blankie can be anything!'


I'd like to thank Sheryl for all her input on the visuals for the book. It was very much a joint project. I'd also like to thank the team at Little Brown for all their support.

One that got away!
A favourite sketch.
