Jim Peacock creates a Buzz
6 March 2012
Jim Peacock was recently asked by a neighbour if he could give them a hand…before he could say Beehive illustration he was fully kitted out, head to toe in a bee suit with a smoker in his hand.
"What an experience" said Jim "For most of the time the bees were quite calm but you could hear the buzzing get louder when they got impatient. The scariest bit was the apprehension of being stung, I was told it didn't hurt but my neighbour's husband was rushed to hospital after suffering a serious reaction!"
Although Jim wasn't stung he suffered from ants in his pants (or bee suit) after standing on a nest! He collected over 70 litres of honey……Yummy!
We are over the moon to learn that 'Jane Goodall: A Champion of Chimpanzees' illustrated by Beehive's very own Gustavo Mazali, has been listed as one of Bank Street's 2021 Best Children's Books of the Year!
Come and take a peek into our next 'Under the Cover.' This time we will be looking at a self-publishing series! It has been a delight to work with new writer, Alison Grunwald on her zany series, Whatever Next, Grandma! Illustrated by Beehive artist Mike Phillips.
