Steve Stone’s Picture-Book on CBeebies – Cantankerous King Colin

KING-COLIN-450Px_Steve-Stone

I completed a picture book for Maverick Books, which was published this year. The book is written by author Phil Allcock and is called Cantankerous King Colin. I received the wonderful news that the the book was to read by actor Tom Hollander on CBeebies Bedtime Stories (most recently known for his role in TV series Rev and character Cutler in Pirates of the Caribbean) The story is about a King who does exactly what he wants, because he can, because he is King. But there is someone who can tell him what to do… The reading was first aired on Monday 15th of September and can be seen on BBC iPlayer until Monday 22nd September.

Editorial Illustration for All You Magazine

All you Magazine asked me to create a series of illustrations for their September issue. It was an article about how to avoid the common traps that a supermarket has in it to get you to buy more. I created a full page illustration for the intro, a spread and several smaller icons of traps that the article was calling out. It was such a fun job drawing what I love most…food!

OneSunnyDayInMahe

Piece title: One Sunny Day in Mahe, Seychelles
Map illustrated by: Nip Rogers
Features on: They Draw And Travel

Mahe is the most developed and inhibited island in Seychelles’ archipelago of 155 islands. Since its a relatively tiny island, with Victoria Town’s famous Clock Tower as the starting point, everything can be reached within a 20 to 30 mins drive. The colorful market where fresh produce is sold (lots of young coconut water), the government buildings, culture centers, the docks, and the crystal beaches are all within reach which gives the very-windy-roads of Mahe an awesome view for a cruise under the sun. This map is hi-res photo of a small part of a 19″ x 39″ illustrative painting to remind me of my sunny days in Seychelles.

Denise Gallagher was commissioned to create an illustration of Pinocchio based on the original Italian fairy tale by Carlo Collodi. The novel, “The Adventures of Pinocchio” is dark and tumultuous with many twists and turns. Denise used imagery from the tale to create an illustration that captures the spirit of this whimsical yet grim story.

‘Hospital’ drawings now on Wellcome Trust blog

TooManyPills

After a stay in hospital last year, I decided to make some drawings about my experiences. I later submitted these to Wellcome Images where they are now available in a library of medical pictures. I was really pleased when they were recently picked to appear on the Wellcome Library blog. I have drawn and written about what happened to me and how I felt about it all. I have tried to show the hospital experience from a patient’s perspective.
