Cinderella & Grimm's Fairytale exhibition

I hope you're cosy and cheery despite the grumpy weather.

I've been a little bad at updating my blog recently.  I've been trying to spend some time away from screens, it's not exactly easy though when your job often revolves around them, but I've attempted to swap a lot of digital work for some good old fashioned paints - as you'll see below!

Now, if you haven't heard, at the end of November (29th - 7th December) I'm going to be involved in an exhibition celebrating 200 years of Grimm's Fairytales at Foyles bookshop in London.  
There are only a few of us involved, and I must say there's some increeeeedibly talented ladies taking part - so definitely scribble that on your calendar and come on down!

There'll be some spreads from my new book Sylvester and the New Year up there too (well, it's a fairytale!) aaand hopefully you'll be able to snag a copy! 

Here's a sneaky peek at one of the illustration's I've recently finished for the exhibition - the lovely Cinderella.  It might be a little different from the version we're all so used to - the big blue dress, the pumpkin carriage - but take some time to go and read the Grimm's version!

Let me know what you think of it, and if you'll be attending the exhibition! It'd be great to see you there!

Books, books, books!

Well, this is a little overdue since they arrived a few weeks ago...but...

 Check out the silverfoil on the hardback edition! Pretty snazzy hey?

Okay, I know it says 'Out Nov 12th' on that picture but that's a blatant lie - it's actually out on November the 5th 2012 and I just got a little confused.  So write it in your diaries - November 5th is the official release of Sylvester and the New Year! Whoopie!

You'll also be able to see some of the spreads in an upcoming exhibition at Foyles London at the end of November - more details very soon.

I hope you're all doing well.  Keep in touch! Let me know what you think of the book.
