Around The Houses by Baron Curfew

Sorry for no update at the weekend - my brother's stag night took preference over artistic pursuits.

I wasn't going to update again until the weekend, but this is quite exciting. In September I agreed to illustrate the cover of my friend Andy's book, Around The Houses. It's a collection of short stories for children, about inanimate objects coming to life in the home...

...(not as scary as it sounds)...

The story I based the cover on is about Kenny the Kettle, who is a brand new kettle out of the box, going through the arduous ordeal of proving himself to his fellow kitchen appliances. It's finally been published.

Here are the covers:

And you can buy the book here.

(PS I don't actually get any money for this - I did it as a favour. Just so you know...)


  1. I'm glad you didn't get paid on this project, the art fucking sucks. Good try though.

  2. It's ace! Well done!

  3. Wow, Judgey McDecider is cheery, eh? Just got my copy. Looks even better when it's glossy. Good work!

  4. Good.

    Spot the deliberate mistake I made (only realised when my mum read it aloud...)
