Happy Christmas Day one and all. Take a break from immobilising yourself with mince pies and chocolate...

Brendan: "Pitched this one to one publisher a while back. Sadly, this bird didn't fly with them... I thought this was one they'd go for. It was meant to just be a little book, like those illustrated books by Tim Burton or Dr Suess, text and pictures. Something along the lines of the Gaiman/McKean kids' books. This was my "Emily The Strange" outsider-goth-girl piece, a little urban fable: She lives in the rafters of her Dad's house, in the attic, and falls in love with Faraway Boy, who lives in the next door house. The two of them elope at night onto the roofs... The designs are based on those little bald, baby birds that fall from nests, that you see on the pavements in spring."
