Fresh from HAY festival

My first time at HAY Festival this weekend. It's such a beautiful setting in Wales. Sadly I missed Rob Lowe's appearance but did see Paul O' Grady and famous artists Gilbert and George who were immaculately turned out as ever.
Thanks to ALL the people that came
to my event! We had fun drawing some crazy things and reading from Tom Gates.I was SO impressed by the DOODLES they all did.
Got a great live Twitter review  from the telegraph journalist who came to watch me too (PHEW!).

Off to Bournemouth Eastbourne and
Glasgow next.

 Let me explain..
The children at 
THE WILLOWS Primary school
Stratford told me what to draw!
I admit, it's risky business sometimes..
...but we ended up with 
these aliens.

-Two triangle heads
-Twelve eyes 
-Hairy tongues
-Heart lips 
-Eight hairy legs with squishy feet..
(you get the idea.)

Did some DOODLES with the 
older kids for Tom Gates too
And read from the book.

The children asked some
great questions about the
books. And also how
old I was. I asked them 
to guess...(risky again.)
It ranged from 34- 85.

Lovely Hannah from my

Stratford Upon Avon and more shoes...

Am off today to Stratford Upon Avon to 
visit a couple of schools 
and do Tom Gates workshops and read a bit.
I've been practicing my DOODLES and other things. 
Will also be attempting to make an 
ALIEN with 4-5 year olds should be fun. 
I'll post pictures of results..

Made these paper flowers to decorate the house for Easter.Very easy to do. Will post how to soon if anyones interested..
