The Edible Gingerbread Man

As it is a story of the Gingerbread Man after all, I had no choice but to make him. Sorry, but I also caught him and ate him!

It turns out, seeing as I designed this new look to this very old character, that there are no cookie cutters in the right shape for him, I had to make a paper template.

 To read the wonderful retelling of his adventure, find your copy on Amazon.

The Gingerbread Man behind the scenes

The Gingerbread Man as it was being produced. Sadly, not all the illustrations were finished when I had taken this picture. Had they all been there, they would not have fit on my bed. I found out that a picture book takes a great deal of room. These illustrations were painted with watercolours. If you would like to find out more or to buy the book, please visit Amazon.

The 12 Dancing Princesses Concertina Books


I have been a busy little bee. Using my very first ever bone folder, I have been doing some delicious bookbinding. Almost a year has passed since I finished the images for the 12 Dancing Princesses and I thought that it was about time I printed these beauties and made little booklets with them. The images were printed on A0 paper and then folded like a concertina book. There is nothing more enjoyable than doing some therapeutic bookbinding and the thrill of seeing your finished product!
I will have to make more now as I only have 2 left.

Who would like to see these booklets in black and white as colouring books?
