Me drawing fashion knitwear illustrations at Sketchbook Studio

James Ward’s really big drawing in progress.

Supermarket Sarah and Vintage Academe set up their visual merchandising wall.

My work next to the talented Angie Wu’s Monkey Menagerie painting!

Two of my A3 posters being admired!

A little of the crowd!

All in all, a good night! I sold 3 new prints, with 50% going to charity, and ate a lot of free cookies and cupcakes.

I was so traumatised by ‘Grandpa’. Wah, the memories…

I’ve never really drawn bears before… I kind of like this one. Someone suggested that I should try my hand at more natural history illustration, but I’m not sure this is what they meant..?

For an editorial on why wild animals don’t make good pets.
