dublin's may monster invasion!

Hey, can you get to Dublin this May? Awesome thing are going to be happening if you love children's books and drawing. Children's Books Ireland and Dublin Writers Festival are getting together three illustrators - Irish Laureate na nÓg Niamh Sharkey, French artist Hervé Tullet and me - to do all sorts of workshops and monster draws through the city. And you'll be seeing our monsters everywhere! I need to come up with three for the posters, so here's my first monster:

Here's the rough draft I submitted to them via Twitter when I was taking the train down to Exeter:

And here's one of Hervé's monsters!

More monsters from Niamh coming soon! Even if you don't know about Hervé yet, you might recognise his name from my blog post about the launch of last year's Pop-Up Festival here.
