nervous cat drawings

Last week I had an evening when I was feeling fragile, and I inked four little pictures of a rather upset cat. (I'm okay now, I hasten to add. I was just feeling a bit overwhelmed with by a very long list of things I need to do in a rather short amount of time.) Here's one of them:

A big congratulations to Dave Shelton, whose illustrated book A Boy and a Bear in a Boat, published by David Fickling Books, has just been shortlisted for the Costa Book Awards!

I hadn't even heard of the second one, I ought to look out for that. (Here's a review by Just William's Luck.)

I'm going to try to go along to this Japanese Comics & Cosplay party in London on Saturday, especially because the excellent Emma Vieceli will be there. It should be good fun, do come along! And you don't have to, but feel free to dress up as your favourite comics or animé character! Details on the Goethe Institut website.

And today while I work, I'm going to listen to Alex Fitch's latest Booklist radio show podcast, which includes Axel Scheffler and Oliver Jeffers. Visit the Booklist website, or go straight to the Resonance FM podcast link here.
