Artwork for a Resource Book for Teachers
I've had a few fun assignments in recent years doing illustrations for books for teachers.

The idea here was to promote co-operative behaviour among kids in primary schools. I thought ants - appropriately anthropomorphised - would be a good example of groups working co-operatively.

I was given the various chapter titles and ran off a series of drawings to illustrate the key points. The following photos are the cover pages for those chapters.
Illustrating ants is fun, but those extra arms - which I insisted on including because that's the kind of nitpicking idiot I am- do make it a little tricky to keep them all occupied.

...the colours aren't mine. The publishers dropped those in on my line work.

I did a batch of follow-up murals in various schools using these ants.

I hate bald insects.

Where's a good ANT'S HAIR when you need it?

What are the chANTses?

Enough of this foolish bANTer! Any more punsters here will be punished by burial in an anthill!

Yeah, as Bob Dylan sang: "The ANTS are my friends, they're blowing in the wind ..."

It was a HANDY job - quite t-ANT-alising initially, but I tackled it INSECT-ions. At first I said "I cANT", but then I realised I was making a mountain out of an ANTHILL. (I know, it should be a molehill, but I asked my ANT Joan, and she thought it was more ANT-ertaining this way... ) your sorry you started this now, ANT you?

I guess it's difficult to behave with two extra arms
