'We love Knight Sir Louis!' The Phoenix comic

Ho there good citizen! We are Greg and Myles McLeod, known as The Brothers McLeod for two reasons. The first reason is that we share a surname. The second reason is that we are brothers. We come up with silly stories together, then Greg draws the pictures and Myles writes the words. We have won things like a BAFTA and made cartoons for people like Disney, the Royal Shakespeare Company and the BBC.

Greg McLeod draws Clunkalot, the mechanical horse from Knight Sir Louis!

Greg McLeod draws Clunkalot, the mechanical horse from Knight Sir Louis!

Oh Yay! Oh Yay! We present Greg McLeod - co-creator and illustrator of Knight Sir Louis! Here, Greg gives us a sneaky peek at how he draws Clunkalot (or Clunkie as we like to call him) - Knight Sir Louis' trusty steed. Enjoy! Knight Sir Louis and the Dreadful Damsel, the first book in the series is out in August. Perfect for fans of the Treehouse Books, Barry Loser and Kid Normal, it's a completely bonkers story about the bravest boy knight and his adventures to save Squirrel Helm. “What a hero! What a story! Sublime daft ness on every page.” – Jeremy Strong “Knight Sir Louis is an epic non-epic saga.” – Stewart Lee - Pre-Order Knight Sir Louis and the Dreadful Damsel - Hive: Waterstones: Amazon: OR from your local independent bookshop! The Brothers McLeod are BAFTA award-winning illustrator-animator Greg and screenwriter Myles. They have written, produced and directed short films, children’s series and other original animations. They have worked on projects for Disney, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Science Museum (London), the BBC, Aardman Animation and many more. - LINKS - SUBSCRIBE to Guppy Aquarium: Like the Knight Sir Louis Facebook page: Follow Greg on Instagram: Follow Guppy Books: ..................................................................
