    Ohhh My Strawberry Monkey

    I’ve been working away on my characters for my preschool/early years project. It’s developing nicely and I’ve made a lot of changes including getting rid of some characters that I wasn’t happy with. There are also a few new faces! Head over to mystrawberrymonkey.com to see the rest of this exciting project. If you have kids/grandkids there are some free games and activities for them to enjoy!

    What else do you do on a rainy day but stay inside and have some fun! It's been an interesting journey so far and a lot of learns, three of the characters in this image were not around when I first started this project. Something I did learn along the way and made a conscience decision to change was the number of male characters, not sure why I had so many, it just seemed to be my default. Being aware that it's important to include female characters in the preschool arena especially as we live in a male dominated world has changed my approach to this project. Stay tuned for some more exciting updates as I continue to document the journey. Whilst you're waiting don't forget to check out the website for loads of preschool games and activities, mystrawberrymonkey.com all created in Affinity Designer of course! Allan Thompson

    Just a little update with my preschool series. I’ve been working on some new characters and I’ve got rid of a few I wasn’t too sure about, maybe they’ll reappear!Currently working on the 3rd book in the series. Hopefully not too long before that’s out...

    So here it is, the official picture of me meeting Theo to collect my award for my children's picture books and preschool website mystrawberrymonkey.com All the characters, both books and website were all created in Affinity Designer! It's been an exciting journey so far. This just goes to show that with an idea, a little dreaming and a lot of determination can take you to amazing places.
