A Book of Drawings.

Finally finished the book a couple of weeks ago and it seems to have come out okay.Uploading 2.5 gigabites of work to the lulu site took some time and putting the whole thing together has been a steep learning curve as well as a head scratching nightmare in all sorts of ways.
As promised here is a picture of the finished book and a small selection of some of the 170 drawings published.I will put some more of the illustrations up here at some point in the future.These drawings were produced over a fifteen year period and generally ended up being stored in cardboard boxes in various lofts gathering dust, so it is nice to bring these hidden images out into the light of day.
Support your poorly paid artist here by ordering yourself a copy of this lovely book. Send me an email and i'll steer you to the book. Cheers for now.

March from Vernon Hill

Vernon Hills illustration seems very appropriate at the moment; the weather has felt just like this lately.This winter has been very mild with hardly any frosts, I have seen bees and butterflies every couple of days throughout the winter.Butterflies used to be a symbol of summer and such a pleasure to observe but now I look at them and can't help thinking that something has gone wrong here.The Vernon Hill illustration indicates that this extreme wind may not have been that unusual for march.
