fame is but a fruit tree

Fame is but a fruit tree. Isn't that a great line by the beautiful Nick Drake? I'd like to have known him.

Anyway, here's another of the backdrops I am illustrating for the Buxton Festival's production of James and the Giant Peach. I'm pretty happy with this one and though I might still add a little background I also liked it against the white.

Right, I'm off to do some more drawing whilst day dreaming about knowing Nick Drake. Sounds like a perfect afternoon. If only I didn't have to go to work. Ah well, you can't have it all.

Lots more on it's way this week.

I understand you're happy with this drawing... I should be too.

I'm totally in love with Nick, and finding an artwork about his songs is so touching.

This is amazing, how you got such range and tone from coloured pencils is beyond me, I never seem to be able to do it. I am an artist to but I still have a long way to go. Great work, love your doodles :)
