Catty has been working hard despite travelling to New Zealand for Xmas. Here's the latest illustration from a new book coming out soon. The working title is "The Wall" - and in this scene the boy is travelling across the sea.
One great side effect of working with pro-active illustrators is that they offer ideas and insight which can help improve the story - or at least to help crystalise what it was I was trying to convey.
I'll be taking this to Bologna of course to try and sell publishing rights.
