Artist Catch-Up: Nicholas John Frith

August 21, 2015

Oh, Nicholas John Frith, how we adore you! We thought we'd catch up with one of our favorite friends and Red Cap artist, Nicholas John Frith, because he's got some great news coming from his side of the pond, as of late. Not only was one of his illustrations recently featured in the Wall Street Journal (see below), but his debut picture book is about to be released, with tons of fanfare!


Hector is a bear, and Hummingbird is …well, a hummingbird! One just wants some peace and quiet and the other is a noisy fellow, buzzing from here to there. It captures the friendship and challenges that such an opposite pair may find themselves in. Available on Amazon for pre-order, Hector and Hummingbird is available on September 3, 2015. We are loving the updates that Nicholas is giving via his Twitter page–make sure to become a follower!
