Here is a sneak peek at one of the pages of the 'Woodland' volume of my birds of argyll books. The page shows a wren at the top and a goldcrest at the bottom. This is a digital image at the moment but it will be printed for my final book.

Here is a scan of a drawing which will be in my final book of woodland birds. He's just a black and white ink drawing at the minute but he will be coloured in beautifully for the book!

Christmas Promotion

I haven't posted anything in so long, I can't believe it! Here are some images from a Christmas promotion project I did. I chose to make a robin christmas/business card out of wood with a hinged wing so you could see my name underneath. I screen printed my drawing into wood and had it cut out with a fret saw. Here are the photos from the making process...

My positives on tracing paper and the colours i mixed, ready for printing.
