A Topiary Menagerie
Just finished this afternoon. 
I posted the 'rough' for this a week or so ago but now 'tis done, all but a little tidy-up.  It is an illustration for my new book though it's more of 'drawing-inspired-by' than a translation of the words into picture.
It is pen and ink and measures nine and a half inches by six and a quarter.  For those interested in such things it took ten hours and twenty-five minutes spread over three days.
A House Best Avoided - Cover design.
This is (hopefully) going to be cover design for my new story book,  It will be made into a plate and then printed onto the cover in gold foil - very smart.   The drawing is about 3" x 5", ink on paper and just to carry the idea to its ultimate limit, I made my own pen out of a feather.  Not an owl's feather unfortunately but the idea was there.
Flamingodo or Dodingo?
No idea what this is about!  I had nothing to do and there was this post-it-note and a biro lying there .... imagine it bright blue; the size of a house!  If it brightens up someones day it will be fifteen minutes well spent.
Yorkshire Journal Illustration
Coloured pencil over pen and ink. A4 in size. A magazine illustration done in a rush to meet impossible deadlines.  Not sure which category this fall into so I shall try 'Landscape'


No journal entries yet.

Your art is wonderful, so different and so many details.
I must ask you a question - I'm from Sweden, and I have seen one of your drawings in a Facebook group and someone have painted it, is that okey?

If a picture paints a thousand words then you may well have a library worth of words in each of your pictures.  I love that I am able to imagine that I am in the world your work would bring to life.  You have a beautiful talent.  I can hardly wait to see what you will do next.

Ah, I see,,,. I hate computers myself,, though I am likewise addicted to the bloody things. Sigh.
I shall then live on hope, and expectation, for the seeing of more of your work. Hope that is good for a dram of enthusiasm and the like.
