Illustrators for War Child was an online auction of artwork, prints and books by over 70 illustrators, raising nearly £6000 for a cause that is close to all our hearts.

Hoorays and thank yous, to Leigh Hodgkinson who had the idea and made it happen, to Nosy Crow – Tom and Kate especially – for supporting us, and from me personally to the wonderfully kind and generous bidder who won my picture, I felt very honoured.

I was a lucky bidder too – see ’50 rabbit ears’ by Leigh herself, settling into their new home!




Though it would be mean to favour any particular ear, 41 and 42 are rather nice…




and here is the owl brooch Leigh gave me, looking very good on my owl dress.
