Oscar’s First Book Prize

29th April 2015 by Tim Warnes

I’m delighted to find out that DANGEROUS! has been shortlisted for the London Evening Standard’s Oscar’s First Book Prize 2015. The winner will be announced next week at an award ceremony in London. Meanwhile, I’m finishing off the art for a follow-up book to DANGEROUS! featuring Mole and the Lumpy-Bumpy Thing and – well, you’ll just have to wait and see…!

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:
