'Goldilocks was heading to space. With plenty of porridge packed up in her suitcase. I'm off on a special holiday flight. I'll find a nice planet - one that's JUST RIGHT!' I had a blast illustrating Goldilocks in Space by the amazing @PeterBently @HachetteKids #kidlit #kidlitart
Just found the BEST review of 'A Bear is a Bear (except when he's not)'! "The plot, even by picturebook standards, doesn't make a lick of sense... but forgetting one's own species suggests the bear must have been on quite the bender the season before." 🤣 🎨 #AnuskaAllepuz
Still on a writing hiatus. Popping back in to share the GREAT NEWS that I just signed two new picture book contracts! 🎉🎊🌈💥🥳💃 (More about that soon!) Now back to the writing cave. Stay awesome, y'all.

Another cloud - I tried to make the light glow through this one a bit. I love blue, it’s one of my favourite colours. If this image is cropped on your screen you’ll need to open it to see the clouds 😄 I used @procreate and #maxpacks for these again #art #painting #illustration

Working on more roughs for SYOM book 2 and can I just say how much I enjoy drawing Klaus. Seriously love drawing this character.
