Hello Everyone!

Wow, it’s been a long time since my last blog post! For the last two years, I have been illustrating a children’s book called Mr Snuffles’ Birthday, which was written by my wonderful cousin David Greaves. I am happy to announce that it has finally been published and is in shops from TODAY! Please scroll down to read more about David and the book.

If you can, please support your local bookshop by ordering your copy, but if you would like to buy it on Amazon please click HERE – (and don’t forget to leave us a 5* review!)

Mr Snuffles' Birthday

Title: Mr Snuffles’ Birthday
Author/Illustrator: David Greaves/Emily Wallis
Publisher: Authoright (Clink Street)
Size: 20.3 x 0.6 x 25.4 cm
Materials: Watercolour and Rotring pen.
Press Release: Follow Mr Snuffles as he goes on the hunt through the wood for his favourite truffles in this adventurous and beautifully illustrated new children’s book.

It’s Mr Snuffles’ birthday and his dream present is a basketful of his favourite tasty treat, truffles! But hunting through his woodland home, and visiting all his usual spots, he discovers that there are no truffles to be found. Could it be that a truffle-thief has got there first? And not only that but all the people he meets – from his old friend Mr Snorer, Gnaw and Gnawma the Snorey Boars and Herbert the Hoggle and his little hoglet Herby – seem to be all dressed up in their finest as if they’re going to a party to which he’s not even been invited! Feeling very sorry for himself, and empty pawed, Mr Snuffles decides to call it a day. But, as he gets closer to home he picks up a wonderful, unmistakable fragrance and the sounds of laughter. Will Mr Snuffles have truffles and fun on his birthday after all?

Inspired by the author’s love of the countryside, and vividly brought to life by acclaimed illustrator Emily Wallis, Mr Snuffles’ Birthday invites us to join the author in his wonderful woodland world. Inhabited by a host of memorable characters, Mr Snuffles is the perfect next read, a story that parents, primary school teachers and extended families will enjoy sharing time after time with younger children.

About the author: Born in Yorkshire in 1985, David Greaves’ warmth and generosity of spirit, and his love of travel and adventure led him to make friends around the world with people from all walks of life. His strength of character and devotion to achieving his goals was shown in his achievements as an ultra-marathon runner and Iron Man triathlete. It was also shown by his determination to finish this book, and nine others, after being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (ALS) in June 2015, just after his thirtieth birthday. In the fifteen months after his diagnosis he got married to the love of his life, climbed Mt Kilimanjaro, raising over £12,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, and travelled through East Africa before settling in Newcastle upon Tyne. As David lost the use of his arms and speech he finished his collection of children’s books using revolutionary Eye Gaze technology which allowed him to type by tracking the movement of his eyes. David passed away peacefully at home in September 2016. Mr Snuffles is David’s first book and his wife Philippa and family intend to honour his memory by eventually publishing all of his completed works.

Wall Art Illustration

Hello Everyone!

A long time ago I was contacted by Peter Wright (world traveller, teacher and artist) who wanted to re-create my artwork as wall art – and about a year later, I’ve finally got around to writing this blog post about it! Here are a few words from Peter himself:

“I wanted to create a mural for my bedroom, I was browsing the internet looking for inspiration. I came across Emily’s work and loved many of her beautiful drawings and paintings. I contacted Emily asking if i could make a copy of one of her pieces. She generously agreed saying she would like to see her drawing become a large mural. Using a projector and Posca Pens I got to work. It took 10 days to recreate Emily’s piece ‘Cycle Superhighway’  much to the help of my good friend Alex Clibbon. We are pleased with how it came out, hope you enjoy it too.”

After this piece was finished, Peter and Alex contacted me again and re-created a couple more of my illustrations! Here are some photos. Please check out Peter’s website to see more of his artwork -
