Book illustration for Summersdale Publishing

This is an image from a series I am working on for Summersdale Publishing, for a book entitled "Was Beethoven a Birdwatcher?", written by David Turner. I have been commissioned to create a series of black-and-white bird illustrations for this book due out in spring 2011. This is a South American bird called a Hoatzin.

The card is a farewell card for the lovely Rong Sun (http://rong-sun.blogspot.com/ and http://www.iamrong.com/), a talented Chinese illustrator who has just gone back to Qingdao. We will miss you and wish you all the very best for the future!

Owls of Britain

I did this today because I felt like it, just trying out different styles and it's always fun to draw owls :-)

Halloween Mushrooms sketch

This is a pen sketch of some weird mushrooms I found around Halloween. Quite fun to draw them in black and white!
