DANGEROUS! nomination

22nd October 2014 by Tim Warnes

I’ve just heard that DANGEROUS! has been nominated for the prestigious CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal award for 2015! I am totally blown away, and feel honoured to be in the company of many of my favourite children’s illustrators. The long list will be announced next February…

In the meantime, I’ll be continuing to write a follow-up book featuring Mole and the Lumpy Bumpy Thing. It’s been simmering away for some time, and now that I’ve finished illustrating the third in the Archie Rhino series, there’s time to really get stuck into it.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on our Facebook page for behind the scenes news of these and many other projects!

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:
