Burp or Treat... Smell My Feet!

Happy (almost) Halloween everyone!

Sorry for the extreme lack of blog posts and news on here. I've been very busy with lots of projects- including my first book as author. I usually just post quick news to my Facebook Page and Twitter. So feel free to follow me there, but I'll try to blog news more often. Lots of good monstery mayhem coming up!

The new George Brown , Class Clown book came out way back in August but it's Halloween themed, so I thought it was the right time to post about it. The brilliantly titled- Burp or Treat... Smell my Feet! is a double book Super Special and full of spooky and silly mischief from GB and his pals.

Ten Monsters in a Bed

Do you like burps, slurps, snores or sneezes? How about monsters? What about monsters that burp, slurp, snore or sneeze (and fart)? Well, then, here's the book for you- Ten Monsters in a Bed!

A fun, colorful, noisy picture book- perfect to read before bedtime! It's published by Templar Publishing, the same wonderful UK publisher that I illustrate the shark series- Harry Hammer for!

 Templar's description-

In this play on '10 in a bed', 10 monsters are very squished on a bunk bed. On each spread, a monster gets pushed out on to the floor, where readers can press them to hear the fun sounds they make, for example: snoring, scratching, burping, slurping, sniffing and farting.

In each spread, a different noisy monster is kicked out of the top bunk bed by his fellow monsters, where the reader can press a button to activate that monster's noise.

Some near-final sketches of the ten monsters-

PS- Sorry for the long time of (8 months!) lack of blogging- I've been posting all news on my Facebook and Twitter but I'll try to add more big news here when I can!

Harry Hammer Book Series

Covers for books 1 and 2- Shark School and Shark Star

Announcing the new book series Harry Hammer, about the funny adventures of a hammerhead shark boy. Books 1 and 2 are out now, followed by 3 and 4 in August, with more next year.

More info from Templar Publishing-

"Welcome to Shark Point, a beautiful rural reef community where different species of fish live side by side! Young Harry Hammer would give his right fin to be as fast as a blue shark, as cool as a tiger shark, or as downright terrifying as a great white. Determined to prove that he's just as brave, tough and scary as any fish in the sea, Harry throws himself into a series of daring adventures, in which only his loyal friends – and his own unique hammerhead abilities – keep him out of trouble."

Cartoon Network Animation Academy

 I was contacted by TBWA/RAAD to design and illustrate characters to appear
on a series of advertisements for Cartoon Network's Animation Academy.

The characters are in three separate groups (humans, monsters and superheroes)
and all are in unfinished states, bored and waiting to be completed by animators at the school.

Character development and exploration below the ads.
