Last week I visited the Bologna Children's book fair which was a great and very inspiring experience as usual. Also I'm very pleased to say that my Italian publisher, Corraini Edizioni picked up an award for best children's publisher in Europe. I first met Corraini 10 years ago in 2004, and we have worked together on and off ever since! To find out more about Corraini and their books, visit their website here.

Last year I was commissioned by Shoot Europe to create some illustrations for Clarks spring/summer children's shoes campaign - called 'How to wear'. The project involved creating some illustrated backgrounds and elements which were later animated around live action of kids. I worked with director Adam Brown and animator Jamie Jones who made the drawings come to life in a truly amazing way! It was very exciting to see my drawings animated. You can see the drawings on Clarks website, and the animation here although unfortunately it wasn't used in the end.
