‘The Tragic Tale of Dwayne, The Eating Monster’

We are proud to announce that Valentina Mendicino's first children's picture book as author and artist, published by Top That! Publishing, is hitting the shelves this month. 'The Tragic Tale of Dwayne, The Eating Monster' is the hilarious story of one little monster's insatiable appetite. He eats and eats, and grows and grows, until.... well you'll just have to find out his fate for yourselves! Valentina's striking and original artwork conveys the story perfectly, and we are pleased and excited to be part of the blossoming career of an artist and author who is definitely one to watch over the coming months.

Haemophilia Monster

Sholto Walker has completed a fun yet sobering commission for a leading specialist UK advertising agency. The brief was to design a mostly friendly monster to represent the rare blood disorder haemophilia that predominately affects males. The aim of the campaign was to inform young children who suffer with the disease about how to live safely with it. The character had to be represented in a positive and entertaining way while reflecting the particular nature of the disorder as closely as possible. Sholto says " This I did by designing a bright red pet monster, Hemon, that was, while potentially threatening, mostly benign and friendly if looked after and treated with respect by his friend, Max, the ten-year-old boy he lives with. I drew the characters as vignettes in various scenarios and activities and also produced three four-page comic strips featuring Max and Hemon in various simple short stories."
