Archie News

27th October 2015 by Tim Warnes

I have just completed the art for the fourth Archie (aka Otto) Rhino book,  and I have to say it was a breeze to do – like visiting old friends! It publishes 2016 – in the meantime, check out the Rhino family’s latest adventure in MORE!

And if you’ve been enjoying Mole and the Lumpy-Bumpy Thing in DANGEROUS! then you’ll be pleased to know that the follow up also publishes next year. I can’t give too much away yet, other than it features lots more labels – and BUNNIES!! You can get a sneak peek at its development over on our Facebook page.

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:
