Billy Goats Fluff


Phew, a day back in the studio! Unfortunately that means spending quite a while this morning doing boring things like writing invoices and catching up on all my emails (anyone remember what did we do before email?).

A bit of bad news tucked in amongst it all - I'm not going to be illustrating the Billy Goat's Fluff story after all. Because it's the same publisher that I worked with on the Giddy Goat books, they have decided that I shouldn't do another a goat book. I suppose that makes sense. What a shame though, I was looking forward to that one. It will be fascinating to see what the illustrator they choose does with it though. I can see the beginnings of my version in my head already. Trouble is, I've probably got a wait of around 18 months before I get to nosey at the actual finished book.

What a shame that you won't be doing the Billy Goat's Fluff book. Is it because they think it will look too much like Giddy Goat? Never mind, one door closes and another opens!

Yes, I imagine they think that I am known for Giddy Goat, and it will be hard to do another, different goat that could compete.

Also I suppose it could be a bit wierd, becoming 'the goat woman'!

Hmmm... I suppose they want it to look very different in style. Shame though.

Yes, I really liked the feel of it. Some I fancy more than others, even though they might come good in the end.

That looks fantastic.

I do a quite different type of blog as Alistair Fury at www.doctorrevenge.com! Haven’t done one for a while though…

My word! Fantastic stuff. Not having kids, I didn't know about the show, but I can tell it's pretty darn amazing from the blog.

Makes me feel rather boring and lacklustre. Excuse me while I just creep away to find a corner to sob quietly...
