Royal Tea

Special agents Claire and Alice at Meiklejohn Illustration invited their artists to celebrate this summer's Jubilee by making an image in honour of two great institutions, The Queen and the good old British cup of tea.
My cup is below and you can see more on the Meiklejohn blog here.

Santa has arrived early in the studio this year via a new commission from Random House. Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter from McFly are the authors of a very funny festive romp of a picture book, publishing in November in time for Christmas 2012. The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas is "about a boy who gets a dinosaur for Christmas which goes on an unstoppable festive eating rampage until Christmas is gone". More from BBC Radio 1's Newsbeat.
