Come have a look at my page. You can be my patron for some exclusive or early news and content and even some nice things In the post… the first thank you cards will be going out soon, I have picked a design I know is a favourite of many…
Painting the tales book to be published!
So now the contract has landed I can officially share the news with you all. 🙂
The history press are publishing a book of the folktales cover art I have produced for them over the last 8 years in June of next year, it is provisionally entitled ‘Painting the Tales’
My illustrations will be reproduced at their original size with accompanying text by me and an introduction discussing my working process and my experience of collaborating with storytellers.
I am incredibly excited that this is happening (as well as a little daunted at the prospect of writing 20,000+ words by October! )
Thank you to everyone who follows my work, buys my work, commissions work or is just generally supportive and lovely. Artists need patrons. We can’t survive without you. Take a bow.
