This is the David Turner book Was Beethoven a Birdwatcher? (Summersdale Publishing) that I did a series of black and white bird illustrations for in the winter. I took a photo of this copy in Waterstone's, Greenwich town centre, today. My first ever published book illustrations!

summer wedding

This is an image for a Badger wedding in June! The drawing was used for the invitations and took a while, so were a bit late being sent out. The image progressed, as you can see, from a basic outline through to tentative colours and then the finished coloured image, with lots of creatures in the picture from the UK and Taiwan. The animals each represent people or experiences. The Badgers represent the same people as the two Hares under the tree.
