Final touches…

I may even get to release it by tomorrow! All I need to do is make some minor amendments and everything should be good!

BART 3 illustration/competition

Okay, here are some ground rules!

  • The final edit has to be no larger than A5, if you can, preferably, leave half an inch border around the edge of the illustration. (But, please note, if you have a black background, make sure this half an inch of border is also black, so it blends in – that’s the easiest way I can describe it!)
  • If the illustration is going to be made up of texts, please make sure there is no profane language. If there is, your application will be disqualified.
  • Scans will not be accepted. Digital media only (colours etc may not show up on final print)
  • If you need help, ask around, there’s always someone who will help! What I WILL suggest, is that you send me the original picture via scan, so I know it’s yours, and then send me the updated piece, in case your ‘helper’ tries to claim this as their own work, or, your work is stolen. But, please make this person aware this is your piece. If they want to enter it as a double entry, this is fine, but let them know if you intend for this to be just your own work solely. (I think you get the drift!)
  • DO NOT STEAL SOMEONE ELSES WORK! I will find you out!
  • In the subject field of the email, please write “Bart 3 / your name / illustration name.1” – In case of any updates, please use the same subject title, but change the number accordingly, i.e. .2, .3 etc… (See the point above reference stealing!)
  • If need be, watermark your work with your name.
  • This is not a paid gig, but a chance to put work on your CV, and, a copy of the book when printed.

That’s the basics. At the moment, no, there is no end date. Take your time, it’s the last thing I’ll need to sort out, but, at the same time, I would like to unveil the winning illustration a week or 2…or 3 before! I will let you all know as and when I need it by, but, like I say, I’m taking my time at the moment writing, so there is no rush!

Any questions, ask!

BLOG: Bart 3 ‘Untitled’ and Hints…

Okay, so, the title of the book hasn’t been released yet, but I AM in the process of writing it in my spare time! Now, first off, I don’t have any artwork yet. I think it’s time for an open competition??? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I DO have the title, just not releasing it yet! If you want the chance to have the opportunity to have YOUR WORK featured, email submissions to and in the subject title, please put “BART ART COMPETITION”.

You can put your own title in on the artwork, that doesn’t matter. No end date as of yet, stay posted and keep your eyeballs open ๐Ÿ˜‰

So… some hints….

  • Bart and Haley go off in their separate directions.
  • Haley overcomesย some obstacles, physically and mentally.
  • You’ll hate me for the ending! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, is that good enough for you guys? I don’t want to spoil anything for you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, I’m enjoying Ohio, can’t wait for next week, more to do, yay! Will do a photo diary for those interested. It’s not really pictures of me (that’s a good thing, believe me!)

Thanks for all the love and stuff on twitter too, it’s good to be able to keep up with you all! I thought I was going to be without the internet completely! (How the hell would I cope?! Heck knows!)

And yes, still kind of unbelievable… Steven Spielberg likes Bartholomew… hey, Steve… don’t fancy giving Marie and I a helping hand, per chance?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

BARTHOLOMEW 3: Developments…

There have been a few inspirations so far on this trip… but, I know quite a few are going to hate me for the outcome. It’s kind of good, and kind of bad.

BAHAHAHAHA! I know, I know, evil laughing means evil things. But, what can I say. It’s going to be a corker ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ohio is treating me well, there will be a photo diary, for anyone who’s interested, which I will fix up when I get home to the UK!

Later folks! x


Okay, between now at 30th of June, if you buy a copy of Becoming Bartholomew, or anything else from the webstore, you get a ticket into a giveaway I’ll be hosting on 1st July *Sunday*

You get 1 entry per item you buy.

So, if you buy both of the books, you get 2 copies.

Pre-order a wristband? 1 entry.

Buy both books, and pre-order a wristband? 3 entries.

Simple math!
