Another birthday... another card

Here's another birthday card, this time for my gran, it's an altered version of the painting posted here a week or so ago. I've framed and cropped it somewhat.

Happy Birthday Jonah

Here's the card I gave my (not so) little brother for his 17th birthday.... He's been talking about getting tattoos so I thought I'd try one out on him. I also gave him a larger ear plug and customised his top.

Wow Award, more info...


The 2006 "Education Show" was held at the NEC in Birmingham,UK. Mantra Lingua's "Little Red Hen and the Grains of Wheat" won the WOW award given by the National Literacy Association (NLA).The book "caught the panel's attention because of its sumptuous illustrations with their determined and joyful appeal which give the familiar text a resonance. Witty, with a juggling cat and a duck on stilts, this will be a favourite in primary classrooms.There is a helpful list of keywords in translation in every edition, so you get a literacy resource for two languages, great for multilingual classroom.

Promo Postcard

Here's my new promo postcard, back and front. I realised that I only contacted most of the publishers here when I'd just left college, so I thought it was about time to boast of my ten published books, multiple awards, stella reviews, enormous swollen ego/head etc... :)
