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


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.

After 12 years as a university fashion design lecturer I now work as a freelance illustrator specialising in narrative illustration. I've been painting, drawing and designing for over 20 years. I created the Yellow Stone Studio to channel various projects for different subject areas and genres. The studio is continually forming, as I develop my visual language with the aim to settle into happy grooves! Currently I'm working on my own indie press, with an on-line shop selling original books and illustrations. I have over 16 commercial books printed with a growing client list. I love working on a variety of projects which challenges my versatile illustration skills.
