Simon Bartram, creator of the award-winning best-selling Bob, Man on the Moon has a brand new picture book out - RUFUS, published by Templar. Rufus is a very keen and very green but not a very mean monster who really wants to find a real deal peopley person of his very own to scare!
Jonny Duddle's alien creatures feature in Templar's recently published ALIENOLOGY. This is a superbly illustrated field guide to other worlds from the solar system; from the many species and cultures in faraway galaxies to how to identify aliens who have already infiltrated earth!

Mark Oldroyd has recently completed some paintings for use in a forthcoming exhibition at the new visitors centre at Millford House in Jesmond Dene, Tyne and Wear. The centre will open in December 2010, in time to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Tyneside industrialist and inventor Lord William Armstrong. Born in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1810, Armstrong was the inventor of the hydraulic crane and the 'Armstong Gun', as well as being an early advocate of renewable energy. He and his wife were instrumental in creating a woodland garden along the sides of the Jesmond Dene valley, now a public park. The exhibition will track the lives and achievements of both Lord and Lady Armstrong.
