Secretive Creatures – The Nod Beagle

Over the years I have counted myself very fortunate to have many creative and talented friends to inspire and influence me. One of this talented bunch is my good friend Chris Lam Sam. A creative wizard with words and music, he is a source of  inspiration and jolliness which I truly admire!

Since 2011 we have been meeting together developing ideas, swapping our libraries of children’s books and dreaming up projects. While many of these are still a work in progress, today we begin to share some of our collective efforts with the world!

Here is a poem from our ‘Secretive Creatures’ collection, inspired by our love for Edward Lear. The process can sometimes start with Chris’s words which inspire my drawings, other times Chris might spot a character in my sketchbooks and write something about them and that is how this particular poem developed. We proudly present – The Nod Beagle.

‘Loving your Alumni’ – Idealog magazine Issue 52

I created seven new illustrations for Idealog Magazine (issue 52) this month.  I love having the opportunity to work on various editorial topics and I like to push myself to try new ideas. This time I challenged myself to loosen up and break out the paint brushes!
