My book, London Boat Race

Today I booked tickets for The Bologna Book Fair. It is the biggest children’s illustration fair, I think, in the world. I witnessed the scale for the first time last year and it was quite immense. Leaving after four days of gathering, meeting and observing I felt overwealmed with the size and vitality of the industry. The people I met and inner workings of publishing left a definite mark on me. So this time I go I want to take my book ‘London Boat Race’ and go to the next stage and bring it into wider circulation! Here are some sketches and over the next 6 weeks I’m planning to have completed it cover to cover.
