Mr Pyre

Apropos of my earlier post about
Vitriolica’s great idea of a blogger book,
Clare Sudbery has started with a wonderful opening chapter, which I’ve been lucky enough to illustrate. This is a little taster but go over to the the blogstory site to read the chapter and see the whole picture.

Hi Julie, I came to your site through the blogstory chapter you illustrated - and both that and the illustrations on here are wonderful!

I just love the portraits of your dog, as well as the wonderful comments you give to you illustrations. The one for the recent illustration friday image about your children was so charming.

tp thank you so much. I had a quick look at your blog and so many of your entries were interesting. I followed through on the Thomas Cook story - told them that we won't be looking at their brochures for our expensive high-season family holiday for six!

Cream, it was intimidating being the first - but also I think lucky because I just had the story to follow.

Thank you Cin I really appreciate your compliments.
