Queen Of Fluffy!

17th March 2016 by Jane Chapman

Last time I posted news here I had writers’ block… But the story finally came, and now I’m painting the art for the follow up to I’m Not Sleepy!  in which Mo and his Grandma are joined by a new little owlet, Bibi. Someone once called me ‘Queen of Fluffy’ in a review, so I’m holding on to that thought as I paint her. She’s already had the “aaaaah” approval from 120 four year olds when I visited a school in Cornwall last week… You can see a sneak peek of the art for this and our other projects over on our Facebook page

We do a limited number of schools visits each year here in the UK. If your child’s school is interested in finding out more, please email us: hi@chapmanandwarnes.com

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:
