Tattoo Who??

Image result for moon tattooI can’t remember exactly how this happened – blame the wine – but at the launch party for Balloon to the Moon I found myself joking to someone that I have a tattoo done for every book I have published. I don’t, needless to say, but I found myself thinking about what illustrations I might have if it was true…

So what tattoo would I have for my next book? Well, that depends on what it is, obviously, but maybe one of these…

  1. Except – eugh! How about a (totally-non-permanent) rubber stamp instead?

    • Yeah… a tattoo is never happening, but Kathryn did give me some really cool space temporary tattoos – remember the sort you used to have as a child? I think that’s the way forward. Perhaps I’ll illustrate myself for my EIBF event!

  2. Now THAT’S cool!
