another peek at morris!



Oh hello, I am allowed to show TWO spreads from my upcoming book with Giles Andreae, Morris the Mankiest Monster. So here's the second one!

(Click on the image to enlarge.)



I got to write all the little labels on the jars. At first, Hannah the editor said that some of them were too nasty and I'd have to rewrite them. But I think maybe she forgot, 'cause they're still there... heh heh.

I used the first scene in the film Withnail and I as visual reference for a truly grotty kitchen. You might recognise the curtain pattern, water heater and gunky sink.

If you're at the Bologna Book Fair, keep an eye out for this book on the Random House shelves, under David Fickling's imprint. (Or even better, send me a photo of it!) :-D
