More Fun With Archie!

22nd July 2015 by Tim Warnes

Archie the Rhino is back in his third book, and this time he’s demanding MORE! This series has been a bit of a run away success – I think the good humoured stories capture life with a rambunctious young child so well, and we can all relate to his parents’ frazzled looks. And to think the publisher needed some persuading to illustrate the family as rhinos! Fans of Archie will be glad to know that I am, as I type, working on the fourth in the series, due to publish next summer. Meanwhile, you can get a sneaky peek of it over on our Facebook 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:
