and the official festival illustrator is – ME!


It’s a bit like being in a school Games lesson, when the captain is choosing her team, and longing (in my case with little hope) to be picked…
and now, here is the Hay Festival – oh golly, THE HAY FESTIVAL – calling out my name!

I loved doing the artwork for the Hay Fever programme, such a huge honour.
And what could be more fitting for the cover than an eager crowd of festival-goers arriving by hot air balloon, all agog for the thrills ahead.

The full programme is available to view and book here – and as I’m sure you know tickets go very fast indeed. I will be appearing twice on Sunday the 26th, at 10am with Bubble and Squeak and at 2.30pm with Martha and the Bunny Brothers.

So, mine’s a glass of Pimms in the sunshine and a raspberry ripple please –
see you there!
