Today on The Ham we we have posted a small selection of work by a visual rambler by the name of Dean Gordon.
We stumbled across Dean's work many moons ago and have been determined to post some of his work on The Ham ever since.
Dean writes short stories and poems aimed at children, with hilarious themes and fantastically ridiculous characters. His illustrations bring these characters to life, and bring the reader into another world; a world where shower curtains run away to the Med, where people have bottles of tomato sauce for hands, of dangerous crustaceans and of sad old armchairs.
Whilst Dean's work is aimed at children, it has caused no end of tea-spitting laughter and merriment in The Ham Towers. Much hilarity has ensued after stumbling across yet another classic tale and so we knew we had to share his work with the readers of The Ham.
I have just posted a very small selection of Dean's work on the online section on The Ham. I urge you to have a gander and a giggle. (click here to see Dean's post)
I also ask that if you are a fan of Dean's work you follow him on Facebook here, and let him know! If anyone reading this is involved in the world of children's publishing, or knows anyone that is, please contact myself or Dean directly if you would like to speak to him. We think that Dean's work would look absolutely fantastic bound between covers, and given the right support, would bring laughter to many many children. Dean has a huge body of work and is constantly creating more.
We hope you enjoy!
