My first picture book is out now!



Written by Peter Carnavas and illustrated by me.

I had a lot of fun illustrating Peter's story. It's about a boy who likes to dress up and scare his family, but they insist he is just not scary.

What happens when Jonathan is too scary?

It was such an honour to illustrate one of Peter's books as I'm a huge fan of his work. Check out Peter's books here.

You can purchase your copy of Jonathan! here.

Here's Jonathan attempting to scare his sister without success.
