I was commissioned by Walker Books to illustrate this non-fiction book about sharks.
Walker, Nicole Davies (the author) and myself were all very keen to make the book as accurate as possible, as it is full of fascinating shark facts. Walker gave me lots of reference material for me to absorb and use for my shark drawings. This was an amazing book to
work on. I learnt so much about sharks and still remember most of the facts!
Surprising Sharks has been very popular right from the start, and has fans all around the world. Here in the UK, I was contacted by the people at Tring Natural History Museum, and asked if they could show my work as part of an exhibition on sharks. Naturally I was delighted, and in the summer of 2008, my illustrations were enlaged to a huge scale, and shown in the museum.
