  • What a weekend at #WalthamstowGardenParty! Fellowship Island in William Morris’ back garden (Lloyd Park) was dubbed “Grandad’s Island” to host readings, workshops, sea shanties, poems & processions - all inspired by #GrandadsIsland and played out as part of @artilleryarts #FromPageToPavement community arts project. Such an honour to see my work used in this way, and so humbling to be part of it. Photos by @james_robertshaw.

  • Thought I would restore order to the universe and make Baloo the sloth bear he was always meant to be. You’re welcome! 🐍 #RudyardKipling #TheJungleBook

  • My eyes swallowed Judith Kerr's drawings whole when I was small – Owp!
I was so ridiculously lucky to be invited round to her house a couple of months ago. She made a pot of tea and we sat on her sofa and talked about making books for children.
Judith was a wonderful human being, an incredible artist who was still working at 95, she still had a twinkle in her eye – her legacy will reverberate in the imaginations of many small children yet to be. #JudithKerr

  • Well I missed #worldfrogday on Wednesday apparently! Turns out I was painting Tad on the window of @goshcomics at the time. Here’s a pic of my little spotty-legged frog. #TadWasAFrog

  • I am astounded to tell you that I will be joining my childhood picture book hero, Judith Kerr on stage at Oxford Literary Festival this April 6th. Nicolette Jones will be interviewing us about our work. I grew up on The Tiger Who Came To Tea, it’s influence on me is huge. I made this to let you all know.
