The Paper Watch Project

A couple of months ago, I gave some of my time to design and paint a paper watch for ;

The wonderful Emma O'Donovan over at Templar Books, has been curating 80 watches from 80 illustrators, to sell in an auction, to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.

Here's why...

In the past 12 months two incredibly inspirational members of the Templar Publishing team were diagnosed with breast cancer. Both of these incredible women are responding well to treatment so in recognition of their recovery we have decided to raise money for Breast Cancer Care (you can visit the BCC website here to find out more about this fabulous charity).
As publishers of an array of award-winning children’s books, we decided what better way to raise some funds in a creative and exciting way but to call on volunteers from a wealth of illustrative contacts.
We decided that blank paper watches (c/o Suck UK)  would be a great platform to showcase the amazing talent of some of the countries most well loved illustrators – The elaborately designed watches will be auctioned on-line to help us achieve our goal of raising £5000
Check out #paperwatchproject to see how this project developed.
The launch will take place online for one week only from Sunday 3rd Nov – Sunday 10th Nov. 

You can look at all of the watches on the website,

Here is my own watch...
