    Soooooo, fully invigorated I'm spending more time on this illustration project, feedback from publishers from my wonderfully agent (Jo Williamson at Antony Harwood) from all the experts at The London Book Fair was that my work is too flat and graphic for the children's picture book market, but people are loving my stories so, wooohoo! I am embarking on refining, texturing, adding in my sketch elements and generally giving them even more love... See above ; )

    3 books written and submitted by my agent to publishers. I'm really chuffed with them, let's hope a publisher likes them as much as I do. Can't tell you anymore obviously, top secret for now!

    A bit about me (I'll keep it brief)
    My name is Jo Ingate, I'm a practising Graphic Designer and illustrator and teacher/lecturer. I'm a terrible snowboarder, great footballer, mum to 2 kids and 2 dogs, and I love butter on everything, lots of it.

    This is the blog site that I will be using for developing a portfolio site for my childrens illustration portfolio which will be hosted at www.joingateillustration.com . It will contain work in progress, sketches, photography and finished illustrations, as well as anything cool or interesting that I find or create along the way. Do feel free to leave comments and hook up...
