Last year I had the pleasure of working on a very interesting project for the Fossil and Heritage Centre on Burray, Orkney. Contacted by Flagstone Creative, they had been commissioned to bring a new look to the fossil display which although packed with interesting items, was dry, academic and inaccessible to the general public. My brief was to help capture a spark of excitement and new lease of life for the long dead Mid-Devonian Fossil Fish in their collection with illustrations for information boards.

I employed Graeme as the sole illustrator and designer on The Dangerous Book of Heroes. The quality of his work was excellent and he was great at understanding what we at HarperCollins needed, and at doing it quickly too. It was a complicated project, and the drawings needed to be historically accurate as well as engaging for the reader and Graeme was particularly good at paying attention to the details which were important to us and the author. The project was on a tight timescale and he rose to the challenge, producing everything in time and to budget, with great creativity, speed and care.
