The Fourth Bonniest Baby in Dundee

'The Fourth Bonniest Baby in Dundee' has just been published by Floris Books! Beautifully written by Michelle Sloan, a hillarious and very lively story about a mum and big sister taking a baby to the contest for The Bonniest Baby in Dundee.
It was a lot of fun to work on, even though, it was probably the busiest book I have ever illustrated - I ended up drawing 104 characters (not including animals) throughout the book.
I also ad lots of fun drawing the actual places and landmarks from Dundee.


A few illustrations from 'Król', a picture book I illustrated for Dwie Siostry Publishing earlier this year. This is the second book in the series written by Ewa Madeyska. A beautiful text and a strong message - the story is about a girl Frania who is bullied by two very naughty boys. Things are really bad to start with but then Frania meets a new friend, a boy on a wheelchair called Artur and becomes a knight. A lovely story about self-acceptance, empowerment and inclusiveness. It is always super exciting to illustrate a book about a girl, who becomes a knight (and not a princess!) .
