Tamlin and Ruby were originally going to travel together. Here's an image that didn't get used.

I keep meaning to write a story about my Nan, she was such an inspiration to me when I was a child. She always brought fun things in her bag when she came to visit.

Thank you to my brother-in-law, Marcus Byron, for his great woodwork skills and for helping me to set up a new studio. After all those years of working from the kitchen table it's great to finally have a proper space to call my own. Watch this space for some new and exciting work!

In anticipation of World Book Day, tomorrow, I paid a visit to Broadclyst Primary School to talk to the reception children about being an illustrator. It was a lovely morning with lots of friendly, smiling little faces, asking lots of questions. After I read the children a story I got them to do some wonderful bird drawings, which had lots of fabulous colours. We started by drawing an egg shape, which was then turned into birds of all shapes and sizes. By starting a drawing with a simple shape, young children are less intimidated by the blank sheet of paper. I only wish that I had photographed a few more of the drawings. Alas! Time seemed to run away.

As I was drawing in the museum I came across a sparrow - no 114. He stood out to me amongst the more bigger and colourful birds in the collection. He looked cheeky and chirpy, yet small and ordinary. I thought children would relate to him as they can often feel small and overlooked, so he was just right for my main character. Initially I wanted to call him Solomon but it was decided by the museum that he would be name Alfie. Much more child friendly, so, the character of Alfie began to develop.

It's 150 years since The Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) first opened its doors in Exeter. For their anniversary the museum asked me to design a children's book to be sold in their shop.


The brief was to show a variety of exhibits from the collection at RAMM and include Prince Albert himself of course!
