Hello! Here's a little roundup of what's been happening lately at Elsom HQ...
I was involved in another super exhibition with Exeter Illustrators in May. This was the piece I created for the show, which was displayed in a local venue here in Devon called the Welcome Cafe:
I've just updated my portfolio with a lovely job I did for another local client, House of Marbles. House of Marbles are a brilliant games, marbles and glasswear brand who have a museum based in a historic pottery factory. I created two characters for them called Henry and Maggie, who help visitors explore a brass rubbing trail on the site:
...and you can see more of them here
July saw the release of the third Horace & Harriet title, called Horace & Harriet The Sports Spectacular. It's packed with sports, shenanigans, shotputs and silliness! But you might want to watch out for that crafty Coach Whipston...
In other news, I'm going to be at Edinburgh Book Festival in August! Chatting & drawing all things Horace & Harriet on Saturday 18th August and with the Flying Fergus dream team on Sunday 19th.
Tickets are still available for Horace & Harriet here.
If you can't make it to Edinburgh, I'll be at various other festivals and events later this year:
Broughton Hall, Yorkshire on 27th September
Bath Children's Literature Festival on October 3rd
Cheltenham Literature Festival in October (date TBC)
Loogabarooga Festival, Leicester on 21st October
Exeter Literature Festival on 17th November (details TBC)
I hope to see you at one of the events!
And finally - I promised you some rabbits. Here they are:
Until next time!
