Digging up old work (an occasional slot)


I've been rummaging through some of my old work looking for material to show my agent. Often I end up getting distracted by the pieces that I turn up and forget what I was looking for in the first place.

This is one example, an exhibition piece from several years ago which I've always had a soft spot for. The tree was actually in my local park, I did an on-the-spot sketch and developed it into this illustration.

Wonderful piece of art! I love trees a lot. This one is exceptional. . .and the fox is pretty darn great too!

dYour images really make my heart race...just the way it did as a child when I came across a fascinating illustration in a picture book! This is glorious. I love that this tree called to you in such a way that it is now preserved forever. Our family name is Fox, so I have a very soft spot for all foxes.

Oh John, this one is especially wonderful. If ever you do a limited print run, please mark one down for me!
