I was a big fan of Google+ Albums, so before they disappear, I'd like to share this one with you.
Many thanks to all the new followers of my Collections, now the notifications issue has been solved, I'll look forward to meeting and talking to you more!
Cheers, Paul

It was the 'so and so has started following' notification, which was totally out of control. Now replaced by the 'so and so has plus oned' your image. I've had my collections unfeatured because of the appalling spam, lewd and pointless comments and links to phishing and porn sites. Not putting up with that. I'd actually like to have my entire g+ profile, pages and collections made 'direct only' until the multiple problems are sorted. Are you aware that Google photos allows anyone to download your images freely? Not happy about this at all. Especially given the way that my images are appearing all over Amazon on fake PoD sites right now.

+Gary Ray R I'm not really sure where he came from, I was helping to move my 80 yr old neighbour before Christmas, so I have my suspicions that he may have fallen out of a book.

If You Like That - Design
Something for a Sunday morning!
My darling wife Helen, Rob Parry and Simon Barber performing a fantastic track from their new album, Black Marker Red Marker, at The Eastville Project in Yeovil. Amazing lighting installation by Gavin Morris, filmed by James Thornton of Follow The Sun. 
Listen to, or buy, the album here ▶ designtheband.uk
Design have a busy schedule of gigs coming up, including Bristol, Exeter and the 100 Club in London.
May will see them travelling to New York for Popfest.
They'll also be playing a set of songs from Simon's hit 80s indie band, The Chesterfields, with Andy Strickland of The Loft.

I think a somewhat crude nature is prerequisite to social satire...the good stuff, at least, +Helen Stickland!

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 and 2015 have seen the republishing of my bestselling children's dinosaur books. This is part of a very exciting collaboration with Nurture Rights and The Natural History Museum in London. 
A very busy couple of years where I travelled all over the UK, worked in the International School In Amsterdam, had an artist residency at Seven Stories in Newcastle, run a community project 'BugStore' with four schools in our local area an innumrable appearances 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...

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.
