Boat Race Open Studios, Sunday 6th April 2014

We are planning to hold a mini Open Studios afternoon at my studios, Palace Wharf Studios in Hammersmith, on Sunday 6th April to coincide with the annual Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, which runs past our river terrace. More details to appear here soon!



Christmas Radio Times Illustration (Posted here rather late...)

I was commissioned to do the radio lead illustration for the 2013 Christmas Radio Times magazine-so here is the image! I thought I should post it here even though it is March now. This was a nice brief to do. It was for a new collection of radio plays, based on Beatrix Potter's stories, but brought up to date. I was asked to show some of the characters gathered around an old fashioned cabinet radio in the snow, as if they are listening to it. This was done in watercolour, with a little pen and ink on the characters. It was fun to do, and it was a very short deadline which I managed (just about)!
Here is a copy of the original artwork, and also below it a file of the illustration in place on the page.
