A picture book about the friendship between a boy and a robot.
Picture book
My new picture book, 'Franky’ will be published by the end of may by Querido.
The story is about a boy, Sam, who’s obsessed with robots. 
Sam is certain that robots really exist and that they live on a planet far away.
He thinks one day they'll come to visit, but nobody believes him... except for Franky.
Franky is the robot Sam has build himself… 
'Franky' is a story about imagination, about believing and being believed but also about friendship and letting go. 
I had so much fun illustrating all the robots, and especially Franky.
The challenge was to give him character and expression purely through gesture and position.
