I’m extremely lucky to have Ritva Voutila illustrating my next story. Not only is her style wacky and fun but she’s brought the scenes alive. The skin tones, the movement, the colour, the sneaky alien tentacles that seem to be exploring everything tell their own story.

I’ve arranged for a sneak preview:

No Such Thing

Pop over to www.ritvavoutila.com and have a look at Ritva’s work.
