Munching Away

I am totally chuffed to announce that there's a new edition of Munch available now. My original publishers, Meadowside, have been amalgamated into another company, getting rid of a lot of their back list in the process, meaning the rights to Munch, and my first book Fish Don't Play Ball, revert back to me to do with what I like. So, both titles are now available on print on demand through the lovely Albury Books, run by one of the guys who started Meadowside in the first place. There is also an ebook of Munch coming very soon, which is very exciting.

I'm going to try my hand at one of those new-fangled Twitter/Instagram giveaways that all the kids are doing nowadays. There'll be three copies of the new edition up for grabs next week, complete with signed dedication and few postcardy goodies chucked in, too, so keep your eyes peeled for all the deets.

Studio Clear Out Offer

At the beginning of this month, I had an offer running in my Folksy shop, 20% off everything. I've decided to extend it to the end of the month, midnight on Thursday 30th April. All you need to do is put the code "SpringClean" in at the checkout. Please do take a look, I need to make more room in the studio for the all the new screen prints I'm itching to make.

Princesses in Da House

The cover of the Amazing Princess Things to Make and Do I did for Autumn Publishing last year at the London Book Fair last Wednesday:

Yeeeehhhh, boi! Princesses in the house on the @autpublishing stand #lbf

It was pretty awesome to be able to see it from up on the balcony:

Awesome, you can spot my work from all the way up here... #lbf

And the ceiling at Olympia is pretty fantastic, too:

Mnemonics

Queens HAI

The Six Wives started out as illustrations for one of the Hysterical Histories/Autumn Publishing series I've been working on for the past couple of years, but which doesn't look as if it is going to go ahead (yet, at any rate). So, rather than just let these babies sit there doing nothing, I thought I'd re-draw them using a new pen setting I've discovered/fallen in love with in Manga Studio, and then colour them up for my portfolio. That, and I really want to do a mnemonics screen print series, so this Tudor green and white version is how I envisage that looking. It would be lovely to print it just using the two colours on some kind of parchment-type paper, or even paper I've aged myself using tea or coffee. That way, each print would truly be unique. All I need now is a bit of moolah to get in the print studio!
