Book blurb:
Boy and Toy go everywhere together, and life is wonderful. But one day Toy disappears . . . There's only one place Boy hasn't looked . . . The TOYBOX. What will he find inside? Join Boy in this beautifully illustrated children's picture book, and set off on an adventure through imaginative childhood landscapes. Each page is intricately depicted by the award-winning illustrator, Andrew Mark Pickin.

The original artwork was hand-illustrated with pencil, ink and watercolour, then digitally refined.

The illustration method is a hugely enjoyable but painstaking process. Hours of line detail, both with pencils, inks and watercolours develop the image. I am hugely in favour of traditional techniques, but there are incredible benefits to finishing artwork with digital aids. In my case, this process takes almost as long as the original hand-drawn method, enabling me to highlight, edit, enhance, tweak and filter my artwork until satisfied.

The book will arrive traditionally wrapped and well presented, should you wish to give as a gift (no extra cost): card address tag, brown paper bound with water colour washi tape, and printed logo to seal the package. Free delivery within the UK, £1.99 for international deliveries.

I also accept commissions and customisations. Perhaps there is a particular setting, building, shop or even your home that you would like as an illustration?

Please do feel free to email if you require further information or alternative sizes.

Actual printed colour may vary to some degree from that shown in the above images, as all monitors/screens are calibrated differently. Websites and browsers often remove colour profiles from images, which can also affect the appearance of certain colours. The images that you view on screen will tend to appear somewhat brighter and more vivid than printed versions.

My mum purchased these prints for me to put up in my new house and they are wonderful. The pictures do not do them justice. The illustrations are so quirky and unique with lovely colours and I love the fact that they are local. The free book was a really nice touch. Thank you, I can’t wait to show them off :)
