le mollusc adventure

Well, I'm very excited about a recent project I have been working on: a children's book written by Simon Colley and illustrated by me! Simon email me a little while back with a proposal that I draw pictures for a story he had written about a boy who races snails. When I read the story I was inspired by the little world of amusing characters and events which filled my mind with wonderful images. Since last summer, when I spent time at a friend's garden, I have been taken with the simple beauty of snails and their funny ways. Simon found my pen and ink drawing posted to this blog (also my profile image) and that began the collaboration!

Be sure to check out Simon's blog where he reads the stories out loud!

Below are a few of the illustrations I have done so far.
