I'm still not sure this blog is loading properly - on my computer it sometimes seems fine, sometimes won't open at all, and other people have reported similar problems.
Anyway, if you can read this, here's a new work-in-progress picture from Seawigs, the book I'm doing with illustrator Sarah McIntyre (to be published in autumn 2013).

It's going to be beautiful, especially in its two-colour hardback 'gift' edition (in the paperback the blue tones will be reproduced as grey, which still looks great, but the blue adds an extra zing). It's very exciting watching it all take shape, and Sarah's keeping quite a diary of the illustration process over on her blog: this is episode 9, so you might want to scroll down to find the earlier ones.
