Be More Jane by Sophie Andrews - illustrated by me.


I had a lovely time illustrating Sophie Andrews book, Be More Jane and it's now on sale. The book is full of the kind of lovely Jane Austen advice Jane herself would give, with lots of references to the books. Sophie is an excellent writer and I loved working with her. You can find out more about her here on her blog, Laughing with Lizzie.
Here's a little blurb from the publisher:

Katrin is on page 27 of 326 of Project Darcy: "the plain hippyish one with the dull brown hair. Charlie, I'm not that desperate," This must be the best modernization of "not handsome enough to tempt me" I've ever read! Brilliant!

“But, for those who love, Time does not exist.”
Jane Odiwe, Searching for Captain Wentworth

“My favorite book has always been Jane Austen's Persuasion and it's been the comfort blanket of my life which I know sounds a bit dramatic but, if ever I'm feeling fed up, it's my novel of choice. What I've always done when I can't face the world is to retreat into its pages and spend some time with Captain Wentworth.”
Jane Odiwe, Searching for Captain Wentworth

“Time is but a shadow; Too slow, too swift, But for those who love, Time does not exist.”
Jane Odiwe, Searching for Captain Wentworth
