FREUDIAN SCRIPTSOne night, whilst chatting with my friend Georgia, who lives just a couple of doors down, the topic of books came up.

I asked her if she’d ever seen the little books I’d written and illustrated a few years back…she hadn’t and asked me to fetch them. After reading them Georgia told me about a friend of hers who had just set up a publishing company, and she thought that this friend would probably like to see them. Georgia introduced us via email and I jumped on the train not long after to meet Esther Freud, of Freudian Scripts.

We met at the Freud Cafe/Bar on Shaftesbury Avenue. Esther and her brother are involved in the running of Freud, which was the first Cafe/Bar in the U.K. and has been going for 26 years. It was agreed that all four books would be printed under one title and an exhibition of drawings, relating to the books, would be held at the Bar at the same time as the launch of the book. This has been like a dream come true as, alongside drawing, I have always written too and sometimes don’t know which I’m more passionate about. Esther asked me if I knew anyone who could write a blurb for the back cover and Chris Packham instantly came to mind as he had read a couple of the books and a rather drunken discussion had ensued about the meaning of one of the books in particular. The launch is to be held on Tuesday the 2nd of July at Freud, Shaftesbury Avenue, London.
