Hands off my Honey! is here!Thursday, 28th March 2013
This is a collaboration between Tim and me, except that Tim had absolutely nothing to do with the writing, and I had absolutely nothing to do with the pictures! It’s nice to see both of our names on the cover of a book.
I wrote this story because my brother and I used to love playing sneaky games when we were little, as do my boys and their mates. I think that’s how they get so filthy – they’re forever pretending to be commandos.Janes Books
Ollie’s 123 App!Thursday, 28th March 2013
We’re delighted to announce an exciting new venture for us – our very own app! Ollie the cat originally featured in a series of concept books by Walker Books – now he’s back in Ollie’s 123, which features possibly the cutest giggly worms ever! Narration is provided by my son, who also designed the typeface. It will be available to download for FREE very soon!Tims Books
Here's a selection of companies that we've produced work for over the years. We have been published in over 20 countries, and in more than 18 different languages.
a bit about us
We studied illustration together at Brighton University, graduating in 1993. Since then we've got married, had a couple of kids, and collectively illustrated over 150 books.
Although we work separately on our own commissions, we constantly refer to each other for advice when we get stuck. For instance, Jane is definitely better at perspective and providing cake, whereas Tim knows how to work the scanner and type an invoice.
We share a studio in rural Dorset, UK near the Jurassic Coast, with cows, rabbits, and badgers for neighbours.
Together we are CHAPMAN AND WARNES (a bit like Batman and Robin, but with less crime fighting and no capes)!
We would love to hear from you:
