If I wasn't so scared about falling off, I'd love to get a Vespa

I was delighted when the Berkeley covered their Pret-a-Portea delivery scooter in my illustrations - so exciting.

This would be great to go to work in - perhaps I could persuade Jasmine to drive it!

But I think this is the coolest idea of all - a repurposed Vespa as rocking horse.

How happy does this little boy look? I think he is very lucky indeed - to have a toy like this, but even more so to have the clearly devoted and creative grandfather that made it for him. You can read more on the story here

And finally my scooter illustration printed on one of our cards.
