I have two projects on my drawing board at the moment...one involves Oor Wullie, and the other involves The Broons!  How weird/awesome is that?!!!

JINGS! Oor Wullie has lost his bucket!

My first ever Oor Wullie project has begun...and you will not believe how it is all going to end!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeLiqw2aVQ0

WOW! Whatta lotta foxes!

Buy a book...help a great charity!

Buy a copy of The Tattoo fox directly from the Tattoo shop, and generate funds for a great charity.  http://www.edintattoo.co.uk/acatalog/The_Tattoo_Fox.html

How the cover composition works...

Bit of a twist on The Tattoo Fox!


What a day!  From seeing the book in Waterstones window on the way to the launch, to the various trips to the exclusive authors' toilet-the poshest portaloo ever!  In the main pic, next to me is Brigadier David Allfrey MBE, producer of the Tattoo and creator of the fox, Alasdair Hutton OBE, narrator of the Tattoo for 22 years and author of the book, and Fin Cramb, colourist.

Work in progress...

Showing the pencil and ink stages of creating the illustrations for The Tattoo Fox!

FREE PASS to Edinburgh Castle!



Amazing day at the castle.  Got a free pass to do some sketching for my latest project, THE TATTOO FOX!  Got into a few nooks and crannies not open to the public...and right up to the one o'clock gun!
