One of the best part of Artomatic is the huge quantity of fabulous artists one gets to meet. Last year I had the joy of setting up next to Matty Burns, who showed off many of the paintings for his picture book Danny: The Astronaut Deer.
The story is the best kind of picture book - a simple, outrageous adventure, easy to read text and subtle pictures.
If your spring mindset has you thinking about children - whether it's a new baby, or a kindergarten graduation, or you're just missing the great wide wonder of childhood, when deer really could be astronauts - well, I suggest you pick up a copy. You will not be disappointed.
