Paws, please!

27th June 2018 by Jane Chapman

With Your Paw in Mine (Little Tiger Press) has recently been published in several countries – including Germany, Brazil, Slovenia, France and Finland as well as here in the UK and the US. Who doesn’t love sea otters clutching each others’ paws as they ride the waves?

I am hoping that I’ll get to illustrate another book about these adorable creatures one day, but for now I am up to my eyeballs in bear cub drawings for a book about CHRISTMAS! I often get to paint snow through the summer…

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:
