Boris the Bear is back!

22nd August 2012 by Tim Warnes

Boris the bear is back – and this time heʼs wearing a cape! Boris Saves the Show is the third adventure in the series in which the lovable hero takes it upon himself to save the day! If only all bears were so helpful. This series is going from strength to strength, and is now available in 18 different languages. GO, BORIS!

Itʼs been over a year now since I embarked on my webcomic Chalk & Cheese, a spin-off from the original picture book. In that time itʼs had page views from 41 different countries, as Cheese mouse has become increasingly obsessed with okapis and adopted the mantle of dark Sith mouse, Cheese Vader. Find out more and join in the fun at Chalk & Cheese Comics!

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:
