Illustrations for a poetry collection just in time for Mother’s Day!

My good friend Vivien Wade has just bought out her second collection of poetry, ‘Chocolates and Chuckles’. She has filled the book with hilarious (many of them true) tales about struggling with chocolate addiction, the tribulations of maintaining a happy marriage, and minor domestic problems such as getting stuck in the loo! There are also some cheerfully twisted  variations on well-known nursery rhymes. I was delighted to be asked to add some embellishments to her work. This is one of my favourite poems of hers, which I really enjoyed illustrating:

A Secret
I had a little secret,
I didn’t want to share.
But told my little doggie,
’Cos I knew he didn’t care.
I’d hidden some chocolate bars,
Where no one else would see,
And when I went to find them,
My dog had eaten all three!

You can find more of the illustrations on my Illustration page, and you can buy the book here
