A special day for Mr Bear

A special day for Mr Bear

You might have watched Mr Bear's Christmas which was my first attempt at making a film. Since then, I have loved dreaming up more animated adventures for Mr Bear and I'd love to tell you about one I've been working on called Mr Bear's Birthday. A lot of this new animated film takes place in the Kitchen which I had to design from scratch because a kitchen has never featured in any of the other stories or illustrations...

Bedtime Stories

Bedtime Stories

Everytime I thought about what to create, I kept returning to bedtime stories and that is what unfolded when I put pencil to paper and a woodland sleepover took shape with a little campfire for toasting marshmallows and friends to snuggle up with.

On The Shoulders of Giants

What I would this book to do is present to you a reminder that you are a gift to this world in your entirety, in full colour - not a gift despite your life experiences but because of them. A reminder that you too are a giant upon whose shoulders future generations will stand as well.

It was such a chance opportunity that I didn’t even know I was looking for but each week left me with insights into myself and my business and a growing sense of clarity and direction - gold dust with perfect timing.

Mr Bear and Mouse had much excitement in The Corner Of The Forest as Mr Stephen Fry came to visit for a cup of tea to chat about Mr Bear's favourite time of year - Christmas.

Thank you Mr Briggs

Thank you Mr Briggs

It is funny how an idea and a creation made many miles away can land in your world and shape it, a beautiful reminder of how connected we are through stories and inspirations. How those characters can become so dear to you, your own experiences of The Snowman, Winnie the Pooh, The Wind In The Willows, Narnia, those magical places exist in your heart as much as they do in the mind of their creators
