New Bear book – coming soon!

8th August 2011 by Jane Chapman

Iʼm currently working with a great paper engineer on some secret new pop-ups for Caterpillar books which are looking GREAT! Iʼm also halfway through a new ʻBearʼ book by Karma Wilson (which will be the 8th in the series…….who would believe it?).

BUT, the best news is that two of our chickens are sitting on eggs, so we are expecting chicks any day now!

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:
