Today is the day Baby Guillemot must leave his nest in the cliffs, but he is scared, it’s such a long way down! Luckily Baby has such a caring and supportive family, who can be there for him every step of the way.
Everyone has to start somewhere, and I started right here January 2016.
After getting my degree in Illustration, I did what a lot of 'Arty' types do when they leave University and proceeded to meander my way through the next 15 years of my eventful life trying my hand at numerous jobs, as well as travelling and living abroad.
Well, after working as a Diamond Technician, as a Toy Tester, as a Medical Engineer, an Art Teacher in New Zealand, an Avocado Packer, a member of Royal Security, (I could go on and on) I finally awoke from the happy whirlwind I had been riding!
I found myself living back in the UK, with my beautiful wife Heidi and my two perfect little girls Connie and Bettie, wandering what I should do with my life.
'In order to be happy you must finally do a job that makes you happy,' I kept saying, 'in order to support the ones you love financially, you must do what you're best at' I kept thinking......
........Only one answer presented itself to me. I had always dreamed of writing and Illustrating my own Children's Books. So, here I am, biting the bullet, waving 'goodbye' to procrastination, realising the dream!
My first book, 'The Rhino that I Know' cam out in January, followed by my second 'I'm a Guillemot, so what? in May, I hope you enjoy them!!
