Christmas Countdown…

2nd December 2015 by Tim Warnes

The Christmas countdown has begun over on our Facebook Page! Join us in the lead up to Christmas as we take a look back over the last 20 years with a whole load of seasonal stuff, including behind the scenes looks at our books, including old favourites like Little Honey Bear and the Smiley Moon and I’ve Seen Santa!

More good news for Mole and the Lumpy-Bumpy Thing  – DANGEROUS! has been shortlisted again, this time for the West Sussex Children’s Picture Book Award. Fingers crossed for the unlikely friends, who will be back next year in a new bunny-filled adventure…

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:
