As I've just come back from a week in Cornwall I thought I'd re-visit my Cornish sketch book. The landscape around St Ives Bay has hardly altered since I was a student many years ago. Here are a few of my sketches from that time.

  1. I had a lovely dream the other night. Literally because you illustrated it. It was a children's story about a land of baking & cooking. The illustrations were probably rather inspired by the tiger on your Twitter but the colours were pure, saturated Cornish coast. I'm writing it now. Would you like to hear more? Thanks for the inspiration:)
