At The Turn of the Year... oldie, but it still has a certain something.

Happy New Year. X

Christmas Print

For the past ten years or so I've always made a drawing for Christmas. This gets used on a card etc. Since seeing a rare White Hart in Thetford forest earlier this year I've been thinking about the mythological and ghost-like qualities of deer, so this year's subject sort of chose itself. I normally pick a line of poetry or a quote from a favourite writer as a text. This year it's William Blake, from Proverbs of Hell, 1790.

From the December sketchbook

I was sitting quietly sketching shoppers in Cambridge last week. A young indian guy comes up and looks over my shoulder: "You should get yourself a digital camera mate".
