Bear and Friends!

1st December 2017 by Jane Chapman

I’m currently working my way through the art for a new Bear book with Simon and Schuster. This one has been a while coming, but it will be worth the wait! I’ve painted thirteen quilts so far, and fourteen bears!

One of my favourite titles in the Bear series is Bear Stays Up for Christmas. If you want a cosy bedtime read with snow and firelight and friends being kind to each other, then this one is for you!

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:
