The Arrival of my Print Gocco from America!!

The arrival of my new Print Gocco from Susan in America! These are like gold dust as they stopped manufacturing them a couple of years ago.

A lovely welcome note from Susan

Sophie, Edward and Ben like the look of it too, but hands off it's my new toy!

The box is pretty good too

Polystyrene muscle men!

Watch this space for Gocco prints......

The New Arcadian Journal at 30 - exhibition of work

From 17th January - 19th March 2011 some of my illustrations for the New Arcadian Journal (NAJ) will feature in an exhibition which is being held at Leeds University Gallery to celebrate the Journal's 30th anniversary. "Creative and bucolic, the New Arcadian Journal, continues to shed new light on historical landscapes as well as contemporary artists' gardens, by championing the study of political gardening, and by promoting restoration of place and meaning."

A further exhibition featuring my work for the NAJ is also scheduled to open towards the end of 2011 in the library of the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds. I shall post full details of this nearer the time.
