Announcing more exciting news

November 03, 2016 | Announcement | 15 comments | Author:


I have TWO things to be really excited about right now….
Firstly, I am proud to able to share the cover of ‘The Fix-It Man’ written by Dimity Powell (illustrated by me!), a beautiful children’s book that will be launched March next year (2017) published by EK Books.


But wait……..there’s more………..

I beyond thrilled that I will be collaborating with the talented Dimity Powell AGAIN!


Yes, we are going to be a TEAM again as we bring another children’s book to life.

You will have to wait until 2018 to see it, but I guarantee you, it will be WORTH the wait.


Even though I am finishing illustrations for two other books at the moment, I haven’t been able to stop myself from starting the initial roughs for this new one. Ideas were falling from my pencil before the contracts were even signed!
That has to be a great good thing right?

I am looking forward to working with both Dimity and EK Books again, and I am honoured to be the ‘chosen one’ to create the illustrations.




Thank you Dimity and Anouska (from EK Books) for again trusting me to help tell another story.

Staying creative,
Nicky x
