I always seem to have drawn. During my early days it was with wax crayons which graduated to pencils and later pens.
As a small child animals were my favourite subjects. Woodland creatures would be drawn doing human things such as cooking, shopping and playing games. They often appeared in clothes similar to those of Beatrix Potter.
The other week I picked up some pencils and pens and had a go at drawing animals again, these were the result. The animals were created and named by Nick Lee-Frampton and I set about drawing them. The gnu is called Harold; he's a rather clumsy gnu who gets into various scrapes and the second a timid red squirrel called Melody. Mediums used were Derwent colour pencils and a fine Pentel black pen.
