More Summersdale book images

Kiwi

Northern Bald Ibis

Royal Albatross
These are 3 more black and white illustrations I did for the Summersdale book "Was Beethoven a Birdwatcher" by David Turner, due out in spring 2011.

A mention of the Northern Bald Ibis, a charismatic and endangered species holding on to survival thanks largely to the efforts of local and international conservationists in areas such as Morocco, Turkey and Syria. This wonderful species can hopefully see its numbers increase if efforts are co-ordinated across the different countries where the Ibises range. Please see their inspirational blog at  http://northernbaldibis.blogspot.com/ , where you may also see a post which includes my Ibis drawing!

Pirate doodle


(No reason for this whatsoever, just something that occurred to me as I was trying to think of something far more profound and creative to draw.)

Apple day


A while ago just for fun I did this design for some Wild Apple Design stickers, and this is the result they just printed and sent through!
The top photo is exactly how the envelope looked when I got the pack of stickers through the post... some lovely Post Office person had thought it looked like cash or something similar and torn open the envelope to have a quick look, only to find an angry moustachioed apple glaring back. So blatant, but it did look quite amusing! And I'm sure most Post Office people would never do such a thing, it must just have been a bad apple... ok sorry...
