A glowing hearth, warming single malt and... hot water bottles.
Winter is almost here!
|An early illustration to accompany an essay about walking a dog |
in stormy Island Bay, and still one of the looser pieces I've ever done.
I've already posted four previous essays here: and there will be another one along in a few weeks time.
But to mark the advent of winter, here's a small gallery of art I've produced to illustrate other people's essays.
|Unrequited love in Copenhagen. The sleeping object of the author's affection is posed |
to evoke that city's most famous statue - Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid.
|The last time I illustrated my friend Kimberley's essay |
the art only featured the back of her head, so I tried to redress
the balance in this piece for her running story.
|A winter weekend tramp which turned into a raucous|
and revelatory night in a remote hut.
|This essay was about schoolboy bravado against the|
teeth of winter, except when no-one's looking.
|Not for a winter essay, but this illustration of the Aotearoa |
during the doomed first attempt at the trans-Tasman flight feels like it belongs with the others.
