Roundup and rabbits

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 Horace & Harriet book three it's the day of the Sports Spectacular and once Harriet manages to convince Horace that his park isn't being invaded, he soon gets into the spirit of the games. But will his winning streak land him in trouble when crafty Coach Whipston wants a share of his success?

You can see more images from the book in my Horace & Harriet portfolio section, and can purchase a copy online here or here.

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.
