Here are some of my pictures! I do hope you like them.

Every day between 50 and 150 people visit my site but nearly everybody heads for the library and practically nobody visits my galleries.

If you DO visit my galleries then please leave a message.  It would be so nice to have some response to my lifetime’ s work!
You can click on the headings in the list below.

To make the pictures bigger, click once and then once again on the enlarged picture in order to make it even bigger.

Book illustrations (a fairly random selection of the thousands of illustrations I have done for books over the years)
En Avant (these are some of the illustrations I did for En Avant, a course for teaching French to children)
Paintings and drawings (some of my paintings and drawings)
Paintings on wood and stones (some paintings and drawings on wood and stone)
Publications (covers of most of my books)
Television (some of my pictures used by BBC, ITV and WDR (West Deutsche Rundfunk)

I went to the Slade School of Fine Art in London for four years from the age of 18 to 22. I painted in my early years and then began to write and illustrate my own stories and to illustrate and later to write materials for teaching French and then English. I wrote and illustrated stories for West German TV, the BBC and Thames TV. I wrote and illustrated books for language teaching published by Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Longman Pearson, Helbling Languages, and others.

I have nearly always illustrated texts which I have written and that has meant that I have been able to try out all kinds of different styles and media according to the spirit and needs of the texts. This has been great for me because it has allowed me to explore fresh ways of doing things.

NOTE! you can make each picture bigger by clicking once or twice!

      Michael
      I have only JUST noticed your four words sitting so modestly in this section of my site for two years!
      Please forgive me for not responding before!
      Hoping it is not too late to do so now and I hope you approve of the way I have been adding to the site. Let me know if you have forgiven the tardiness of my response.
      Best wishes
      Andrew
