Oriental Poppies in the Pageant Gardens, Sherborne
It's been a busy week visiting schools in Hampshire, Devon and Dorset. This was the sight that greeted me on my five minute walk to the station early yesterday.

Fantastic topiary photo from my favourite shop on this planet - niwaki.com  
Jake Hobson sells the most amazing Japanese secateurs, shears, saws, kitchen knives, ladders and so much more. Wonderful inspiring and very tempting range of garden and kitchen equipment.

Mystery Caterpillar?
Not a refugee from last saturday's wonderland party, this big guy was nibbling at a wood rush blade in green lane in Dorset UK. Anyone know what it is? Approx 5cm.

Really looking forward to this one! I'll be doing a fun DInosaur Roar! event for all those keen young dino-fans on Saturday at 11.00. 
Later that day at 6.30, +Helen Stickland, authors, Jo Cotterill, John Dougherty and I will have our first outing as children's author band, Rough Draft! We'll be performing a set full of book-based songs, with guest performances by Ali Sparkes, Anna Wilson, Tony De Saulles and many, many more, should be fun!

Introduction
Artist, Author, Illustrator, Designer, Paper Engineer. 
I post my work live on G+. 
Most of it. A great deal of work in the last year has been secret, you'll have to wait for that later this year!
I started 'working out loud' on google+ in July 2011 and it's been a very interesting journey. Being an artist and sharing my illustration and art on google+ is a unique experience. Much of work that I have created in that time has in some way been crowd-edited by the experience of meeting so many diverse, thoughtful and intelligent people here. Their comments, company, humor and the glimpses into their worlds and disciplines have been incredible gifts. 
On my profile I post my about my work, art and design, the world of paper and pop up books, children's books and working with children in schools and libraries, music, gardens and landscape. Dog and daughter, sons and sunshine! 

2014 has seen the 20th Anniversary republishing of my bestselling children's dinosaur books by Random House, an artist residency at Seven Stories in Newcastle, appearences at literary, music and children's festivals, in schools and libraries all over the UK, it's been great fun! Not to forget the creation of a 3 metre high Dinosaur Roar mouth!
Much of that is on my G+ profile and more here Paul Stickland Blog

StrangeStore on Google+ is where I post all my new products, promotional experiments and links to my various stores and goods!

Principally known for my work as the creator, author, illustrator and designer of children's picture and pop up books, including many bestselling books, such as:
 - Dinosaur Roar - The Christmas Bear - Ten Terrible Dinosaurs - Big Dig - Truck Jam - One Bear One Dog - Dinosaurs Galore - A Number of Dinosaurs...
2014 sees the long awaited republishing of Dinosaur Roar! and Ten Terrible Dinosaurs by Random House. This is part of a very exciting collaboration with Nurture Rights and The Natural History Museum in London. 

This has become a wonderful part of my job and probably my favourite. I've been working with children of all ages for the last twenty years sharing my passion for children's literature and creativity via the medium of children's picture and pop up books, giving author visits and pop-up book workshops for children of all ages and abilities, including those with special needs. 
It's a great privilege and I've had the pleasure to meet and work with children in schools, libraries and at many of the major UK Literary Festivals and Music Festivals, in Europe and the US. I often post about this fascinating part of my life on G+ and have had so much very positive feedback. 
If you would like to enquire about an Author Event or Pop Up Workshop, please visit the Paul Stickland Author Visits and Workshops page on my website, or contact me directly here. 

PopUpPaper is my pop up book and paper engineering blog. It features the work of some amazing paper engineers. Pop up books, paper folding, papercraft, paper art, paper toys, origamic architecture, free pop up templates, free pop up card templates, free papertoys, everything paper! 

I live in rural south west of England in Sherborne, Dorset, England with the beautiful bookseller and sensational songwriter  +Helen Stickland , our lovely little daughter Tabitha and my four wonderful sons, Felix, Kit, Gus, Arthur. 
My eldest wonderful and talented son Rowan Stickland lives in Totnes, Devon.
