Week 17 - Holly Surplice

We're keeping south bound as the book stays a week at Henley-on-Thames with the fantastic Holly Surplice.

Holly loves drawing animals because it makes her smile, which is probably why she does rather a lot of it! In between chasing around after her two very lively young daughters, she thrives on making bears balance on tortoises and guinea pigs bounce on pogo-sticks...illustratively of course, not literally as that would just be plain silly! The lovely publishers that she works with let her do all sorts of fun things with words, pictures and a bit of gold paint - which is why she loves her job as an illustrator so much.

Thanks for a great week, Holly! If you would like to see more of Holly's work you can visit her fantastic website, get to see what she's working on at her blog and follow her creative ramblings on her twitter. And so the book leaves Henley-on-Thames and makes its way back to London once again to visit the great animator & illustrator, Steven Lenton. To find out how his week went check back here in a week's time!


  1. Thanks for such a wonderful write-up and even bigger thanks for inviting me to be part of such a fantabulous project! I loved carrying on the Bear With Me adventure and feel very honored to be in such fantastic illustrative company. xxx
