The Three Little Pigs... and the Big Bad Wolf.

A new illustration, my take on the classic three little pigs, and the big bad wolf. I had envisaged this to be a more colourful piece, but in the end decided to focus on the action and keep the colours restricted to the pigs and the wolf's long red tongue, with a gloomy grey forest background. (Which seems to match the current weather here)

If you look carefully you can see the ruins of the first couple of pig's houses in the top right behind the trees...


Here are some close ups-

A quick note to all the lovely people who have been asking about my Monster Listening Party illustration, I'm touched to have had so much interest in the piece and am pleased to say it is now available as a signed print in my Teeth and Claws shop.

Would make a lovely alternative Christmas gift... haha

Also check out the many dragons and other illustrated beasties in my shop :)


Update - April 2015, I have stopped selling prints of Monster Listening Party for the time being, should you desperately wish to have one do get in touch and I will be pleased to bring them back, but in the meantime do take a look at my other illustrated beasties and cards in my Teeth and Claws shop - www.teethandclaws.co.uk

SCBWI British Isles Winchester conference charity print sale...




My monster prints getting ready to go to their new homes...

I was thrilled when my illustration - Monster Listening Party was selected for the illustrator showcase (and travelling exhibition) at this year's SCBWI British Isles' Annual Conference in Winchester alongside lots of other fantastic illustrator's work. I couldn't make the conference myself so it was nice to know one of my monsters would be there in my absence, keeping an eye on things for me :)


This year I was also pleased to be able to donate 5 prints of my illustration for the charity print sale- with all proceeds going to War Child, and was delighted to hear the print sale was a great success (and that my print sold out of all 5 prints.)


Monstrous thanks to everyone who bought one of the illustrator prints in the charity sale and also to the fabulous hardworking SCBWI members who gave their time to running it!
