Disaster Diaries!

I think, after about a year of silence, I'm finally (and extremely excited to be) able to start revealing the projects I have been working so (flippin') hard on this year! The silence has ended! Jamie SHALL SPEAK.

First up: 'Disaster Diaries' Written by R. McGeddon (aka the brilliant, award-winning Barry Hutchison) and published by Little Brown, and illustrated by none other than...well, me!

It's an hilarious (and I seriously mean hilarious, I had to keep calling people over to read them excerpts...) series of survival handbooks for young readers set in the town of Sitting Duck, following the mis-adventures of school kids Sam, Arty and Emmy as they struggle for survival against a zombie apocalypse, an alien invasion and a mad-scientist mind-control plot to take over the world!!!!! (Over-abundance of exclamation marks show that this is intense business!)

There are currently 3 books in the series: 'Zombies!', 'Aliens!' and 'Brainwashed!'. I'll get up the other covers asap, plus a few tantilising glimpses at the interior artwork too, closer to release...

Basically, this is one of the coolest and most ridiculously fun series I could have worked on, and I couldn't be happier and more thrilled that it's nearly time for the first book, 'Zombies!' to be released in March (fly my little books, fly!!)

Here's an Amazon linky, though I'm sure all manner of wonderful bookshops would serve you just as well...
