Introducing Archie, the ADORABLE little rhino!

13th September 2013 by Tim Warnes

At last – the chance to draw something other than a bear, rabbit, mouse or mole..!! Question: How do you make a little rhino even more adorable? By putting him in a tiger suit, of course! Unfortunately, Archie begins to blot his copy book when he starts using a brand new word – NO! I love this funny story about a toddler rhino who has one too many tantrums. Iʼm about to start work on the sequel, so keep an eye out for sneak peeks on our Facebook page.

Have you seen our new app, Ollie the Cat ? Designed to help preschoolers with their numbers, itʼs available to download from iTunes, and for Android devices at Google Play and Amazon. Just click a link in the advert at the bottom of the page and let the giggly worms bring a smile to your face! And you can see a short video of our 7 year old recording the narration over on my Fun Stuff 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:
