Today I practiced on a simple spread, rather than an isolated character in order to introduce some narrative decision making to my tests. Also I ate a lot of pizza and listened to the entire Metallica back catalogue (except 1991 onwards).
Comic Capers is a new book out today from Oxford University Press and is part of the Tree Top Chucklers series. It features two comic style stories written and illustrated by myself and Laura Ellen Anderson (Super Duper Cat). This is the first time I have written a published story as well as illustrated so I do hope you will take a look! Chucklers is a series of funny novels, short stories, anthologies and comics that make reading a pleasure for 7-11 year olds. There is something for everyone in this varied collection which is packed with fantastic illustrations.
My story centres around Ralph, a pet photographer with higher ambitions. In order to win the ‘Wildfest’ photography competition he decides he needs to find something extra special - Bigfoot. Join Ralph, his daughter Riko and their dog Pickles as they travel to the Rocky mountains and later to Loch Ness to find legendary creatures.
