It’s time to bid farewell to the old year and look ahead to 2016. I hope it will be filled with creativity and laughter with none of the sorrows of the past twelve months where we bid farewell to my father-in-law in January, Terry in March and our dear old dog in April.
Work continued apace with the covers and interior art for The Shepherd’s Crown by Terry Pratchett and The Diary of a Mad Brownie by Bruce Coville. We also painted The Discworld Knight for The Salisbury Barons Trail which raised £5000 for the Trussell Trust to help families in need combat hunger. My touring exhibition Discworld & Beyond was exhibited in Newcastle under Lyme, Gosport & Luton and other pieces were exhibited by Art of the Imagination at venues around the country and Daniel Maghen in Paris.
I have some exciting projects in the pipeline for 2016 and a new website almost ready. My intentions for the year are to get a little healthier (there is always room for improvement) and to try and work a little faster (!) I hope my work might bring a smile or moment of peaceful reflection to those who come across it, to connect through art is a wonderful way to bring people together and I am pleased to be able to do my small part.
Happy New Year to you all and thank you for your support and ongoing encouragement, it always helps to know a friendly audience is out there as I sit at my work table.
