And I promised Openwide Theatre absolutely ages ago that I would do this poster. I think it is the quickest commission I have ever done, and I'm feeling a bit guilty about that, but I hope it looks okay. If you ever get a chance to see one of their plays, they do cracking children's shows. Two of the actors, Nicole and Gillian, were some of the first people I met when I moved to London, when I was still having to use a map to find my way back to my flat. I was walking down the street and say them trying to load a ten-foot-long stuffed pigeon into a fairly small van and I just had to ask.
Last night I went to the opening of Oliver Jeffers' exhibition at the Illustration Cupboard. Jeffers is amazing, and selling up a storm, too. He's only done a few books, but apparently they account for three percent of UK children's book sales. Not bad.
