Life on Our Planet by David AttenboroughMy Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future
Life on Our Planet required eight detailed pen and ink illustrations, reflecting animals and plants that Sir David Attenborough discusses in this important and timely text. There was also a map to complete.
Many of the illustrations were straight forward, however reconstructing the extinct Tarpan horse, and fitting the enormous bulk of a Blue whale and the height of Giant kelp onto one sheet posed their own peculiar challenges.
This is the most prestigious of all the titles I have worked on, and I am extremely proud to be associated with this publication.

30 Animals that made us Smarter by Patrick AyreeStories of the natural world that inspired human ingenuity
This book is based on the successful BBC World Service podcast, this book explains how animals have inspired human ingenuity and invention. Find out how mosquito mouthparts make less painful hypodermic syringes, how fuel injection systems are more efficient thanks to the example of the Bombadier beetle, how mussels have helped foetal surgery, kingfisher beaks made bullet trains more efficient, and the properties of shark skin that have led to more hygienic hospital surfaces.
The illustrations were of the animals, and of the inventions they inspired, and as such were technically challenging. It’s a fascinating book, with hundreds of “Oh WoW!” moments, and I’m very pleased to be associated with the project
