bologna children's book fair 2013

Soon I'm off to the Bologna Children's Book Fair! Here's the catalogue cover I designed for Oxford University Press. Doesn't it look lovely and Seawig-ish?

If you're at the fair on MONDAY, look out for Philip Reeve and me where we'll be doing Oliver and the Seawigs-themed live drawing! Ha ha, I mean I'LL be doing live drawing and Philip will be following me around with a black pen colouring in lots of sea monkeys. No, really, I hope he'll do some drawing, too.

If you're following the fair on Twitter, there's no official English-language hashtag, so you have to skitter around about five tags, which is a major pain in the backside. I'm going to try to stick to #BCBF13, but if no one else uses that, I may have to migrate to #BBF13 or #BolognaBookFair.
