Well done Papdale pupils

Artwork by classes P2/3S, P3E and P3M from Papdale Primary School is currently on display The Orcadian Bookshop, Kirkwall. This project was of particular interest to me since I was asked along to lend a hand a few weeks back. Fab stories and super duper illustrations. Well done again!

The Orkney Colouring Book

Skarabrae 1

This was the second piece I added to the Young Enterprise team’s book.

I love the quote on the back page…by our very own George Mackay Brown…

‘The imagination is not an escape, but a return to the richness of our true selves; a return to reality.’

The books are available in local shops and make a lovely gift for ones self 😉

This was one of my entries for YE company Norden’s colouring book. If you haven’t bought a book already then you should, they are super. You can find them in The Studio Shop and Grooves, Albert Street, Kirkwall…plus plenty more shops in Orkney (that I don’t know about!)

Enjoy

Variety is the spice of life

Catsonmoped

As I said yesterday no two jobs are ever the same. I love being an illustrator for that very reason. You have to find quick and effective solutions to every brief.  ‘Cats on mopeds’ was completed for a feline lover last month.

Treasure in the studio

Today I came across a peedie photo frame I got from my granny ‘Ma’.

On the back it reads ‘Woolworths first day open, 23rd April 1959’.

Sure that would have been an exciting day in Kirkwall…
