Oh go on. Admit it. You gotta love a bit of James Bond. We all do really, deep down. The lifestyle, the cars the hotels, the gadgets (oh yes, those gadgets!) and, just occasionally maybe a beautiful lady or two. Stuff of dreams. Well books anyway.
So it was huge privilege to be asked to create a few images of Steve Cole who has was about to be announced as the new author of the Young James Bond books. If, like us all here, you happen to have kids, you'll be well aware of his work already as he wrote the magnificent AstrosaursÂ books as well as the Cows In Action series - both adored by our boy Jake when he was younger and he has been chosen to write the next Young James Bond book (previously written by Charlie Higson) by the Flemming family. The book is due out towards the end of 2014.
I am not sure if Steve is going to be drawing on his own experiences of growing up or living in Haddenham (it is not, I have to admit, a village where espionage and casinos abound), but whatever he does I know it'll be utterly brilliant! He's also a tremendously nice guy which made it a real pleasure to create some author headshots for him.
