OK, so this is Harvey Drew and the Binmen From Outer Space! published round about now ( March 2014 ) by the brilliant Hotkey books and written by the very funny Cas Lester. Go on...give it a read!
I've posted a few of the inside full page illustrations here, and an earlier version of the front cover as a bonus : )

Another Gareth. P. Jones cover for HotKey books. 

I have absolutely loved doing these!  Jet and the team are brilliant to work with and they're making my Illustration look good : )    

( I'm allowed to think that, right? )

Some more work on the Mr Monkey books. This was used as a cover image - and I'll post a selection of the colour insides at some point soon too : ) 

54













Here's some selected pages from a comic book project I did a few months back. It was fun! Bloody hard work though...

I've also been working on a couple of different things for HotKey books over the last few months. They have loads of great covers on their books and I'm chuffed to be doing a few for them and their excellent list!  

This one is for a Gareth P Jones book, which I do believe is out in the shops already. I'll be illustrating another one of his very soon...

52






















These are some bits and bobs from an early reader series I've been illustrating called 'Mr Monkey' by Linda Chapman. One of the many projects I've had on the go recently!  Published by Orion at some point in the not too distant future I expect : ) 

51























A nice big bunch of insides from the previously mentioned Abominators book number 3 : )

Because I was late with the last post, I'll be early with this one - This is the cover for the 3rd instalment of the Abominators books: 'The Abominators and the Forces of Evil'. In this book, Cecil and the gang use the power of the Panty Wanty Woos to fend off a gruesome twosome of terrifying new teachers at Grimely East primary school! 

Out in the shops from July : )

As promised, even if it is a few weeks later than planned... ( yes, I have been busy drawing! )  A generous helping of some interior illustrations from 'Abominators In The Wild' by J.L.Smith and me. Out now and published by Little Brown books for kids

So, The Abominators: In the wild ( book 2 in the series ) should be out in a few weeks I think... sometime in early May anyway. The covers have been through a few changes along the way ( even since book 1 hit the shops ) but I'm pretty certain that this'll be how it looks when it's sitting on the bookshelves!







Cecil with the speech bubble was originally on the front part of the cover - as was the tent image below.  Thought it'd be useful to post them as I've no idea if they'll end up on the back or not! 





When it gets a bit closer  to May I'll start posting some of the inside illustrations : )
