Make an appointment with Dr Hoof

Dr Hoof is a horse doctor and he only treats horses. But when he moves to a new town, he realises that he is the only horse around. It's a one horse town and that one horse is Doctor Hoof! How can he find some new patients and some new friends?
My new picture book with author Diana Kimpton "Doctor Hoof" is out now (1st Aug) from Scholastic.

Here's a sneak peek!

Garry has illustrated the cover of New York Times best selling author Meg Wolitzer’s latest novel ‘The Fingertips of Duncan Dorfman’. Garry’s cover illustration features the hero of the story Duncan, who goes on an extraordinary journey with his scrabble super power which allows him to feel words and pictures beneath his fingers and tell what they are without looking.

Looking forward to the private view on the 15th!

Demons At Clifford Chance

I have the pleasure of showing some of my recent 'Papercuts' at this years Annual Pride Art Exhibition at Clifford Chance including a monster of a big one specially made for the show. 
The exhibition is a joint art show with the Clifford Chance New York offices with the London component curated by Michael Petry. The London exhibition will feature a mix of abstract, conceptual and figurative works by gay and lesbian artists.

The exhibition runs from the 13th June to the 22nd July. Floor 30, 10 Upper Bank Street, Canary Wharf, London E14 5JJ . Go see!

You can see two of the papercuts I am showing in February's post. More to view on here once the works are in situ. In the mean time, as a taster for the 'biggy' here is a colour version based on the themes I've been exploring.

Klimb Mascot

Klimb is a group of energetic people who want to raise lots of money for two very worthy children's charities, one in the UK and one in Africa. The group are holding various fundraising events throughout the year culminating in a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro. For more details on the teams ideas and progress visit

To help raise funds, I will be hosting the "Big Klimb Illustration Auction" in London on the 6th September (scribble a note in your diary now, it's gonna be fun!) You will have the opportunity to purchase original artworks from the UK's best and most loved children's book illustrators. Watch this space for more info.

There will soon be a Klimb blog too...I will keep you posted. In the meantime I've drawn a little fella to help the team on their way.
