A few drawings from this week: here's a magnet I made for Philip Ardagh's birthday. King Pugbeard! We see a lot of Ardagh these days in the studio because he's making FOUR picture books with my studio mate, Elissa Elwick.

Speaking of Elissa, here she is, also in magnet form, with her boyfriend Martin. He's very sweet and plays in a thrasher metal band.

And here's Elissa again, with writer Jeff Norton and editor of The Bookseller magazine Philip Jones. We were at the magazine's drinks party because I'm speaking about the #PicturesMeanBusiness campaign at their upcoming Author Day on 30 Nov.

Ah, and one more; I get lots of paper offcuts right now because I'm painting picture book pages that are only just a bit smaller than my paper. So here's a puddle boy painted onto one of the scraps.

If you're going to tomorrow's Illustrator Salon in London with Steven Lenton, I'll see you there!
