Hereford Book signing pictures...

-Book Signing at Hereford Waterstones-

Here are a few pictures of my Book signing, it's quite difficult
to take pictures especially when you're mid conversation with someone, so there aren't that many! We had a colouring competition and I sold some of my bookplates too!

There were lots of lovely comments about my illustrations which
made me feel great although I find it incredibly hard to looks at my work retrospectively as I'm always trying to move forward to get to a place where I'm completely happy.

Me with lots of my books!!!

I made some colouring sheets using the front cover of my book,
they seemed to go down well and the children who loved 
the glitter glue pens!

Here are some photos of my book in the window with the 
mousey cut-outs I made!

It was a great day, thankyou Hereford Waterstones, and special thanks to Danielle Booth-Leatherdale; for making it happen xxx

Colouring competition winner to be announced shortly.....

Just thought I would post this rough sketch which is for my next piece, I usually only put finished artwork on here, but thought it would be nice to show how things initially start out...

This image follows on from my previous post of mr.shrew on the misty water, I'm creating an adventure for him.
