A few drawings we did from an upcoming book
written by Georgette Mayes ~
A while ago we made some drawings for a storybook that was written by Georgette Mayes. It's filled with wonderful wee characters like Ruda Baega Gingeaman the earthen faerie, a wee little worm called Grimley and an elderly spider know as Wilda Webster Mae who's drawings you can all see below. The book iteself is yet to be published and we don't know when it will become available but when it does we'll be sure to let you know about it on our home page.

"BESSIE BELL AND THE GOBLIN KING"
a story book written by Charlotte E. English ~
We were very excited when Lady Charlotte asked us to draw some pictures for her latest book. There were many reasons for all this excitement but the one that really caught our attention was the fact that this book was all about goblins...and we love to draw goblins! You can see three of the drawings we made below. There's Drig who's a wee goblin sidekick, Maggin the landlord of the notorious Motley Inn and last but not least, you can see the mysterious Mister Green and Mister Grunewald.The story is set in the Lincolnshire Wolds, 1812. It follows housemaid Bessie Bell who is swept far beyond the shores of England and into Faerie Aylfenhame where dangers untold await in the Goblinlands...but we don't want to give anything away, best you ready the story yourself. You can order your own copy from Charlotte's website. Here's the link:

A couple of drawings we made for
"CAITLIN & HER FAIRY KEEPER"
a fairy tale written by the Fairy Maker ~
If you like fairies you probably know Lady Kara The Fairy Maker and the lovely fairy jars she makes for special little fairy keepers...but did you also know she wrote a story about a wee faerie called Caitlin and her journey to find her very own Fairy Keeper! It's true, she did! And she asked us to make the drawings for this lovely little book...like the two pictures below. We drew them both using a computer, usually we only use pencils for our drawings but in this case we think switching to a computer pen was the perfect choice.
You can visit the Fairy Maker's page where you can get more details about the book and see all the lovely wee fairy folk she makes. Here's her page: https://www.facebook.com/TheFairymaker
