Booktrust Best New Illustrators Award

I have been nominated as one of Booktrust’s 10 ‘Best New Illustrators’!!!!

There is some really really amazing illustrators on the list and i’m extremely proud to be in there. Take a look at the site at all the amazing work …Salvatore Rubino / Sara Ogilvie / Kevin Waldron/ Levi Pinfold… some really amazing books. Really gutted i wasnt at the award ceremony. Im here in Nepal … currently looking for electricity.
 
Also take a look at the excellent Guardian audio slideshow of Children’s Laureate Antony Browne who was one of the judges of the award. (my images are fuzzy though!!! argh!!)

Paris Book Fair: Thierry Magnier

Have a look out for Thierry Magnier’s stand in the Paris Book Fair: 18-21 March. I adapted the last spread of ‘Un Peu Perdu’ as a 6 metre banner! wow!
Sadly I cant make it over as Ill still be in Nepal. Im very proud to be published with Thierry Magnier. I thought their stand and range of books was one of the most eye catching and inspiring in the whole of the Bologna Fair, so i am really extremely proud to be included in their stand this year in Paris.
 
Also I’d like to thank them very much for buying my fair trade owl toys from Mahaguthi. They were the first publisher to do this. Im really happy they were so excited about this project, i hope we can do more with this!
 
Check out Thierry Magnier’s website. They publish some of my favourite illustrators and books…. some really stunning work in there. univers > petite enfance is especially good
