Exciting times. At the end of 2009, I was asked by Simon Petrie, to design a cover for his Sci-Fi book, “Rare Unsigned Copy” – tales of Rocketry, Ineptitude and Giant Mutant Vegetables.

The book has now been published, by Peggy Bright Books
and as per agreement, I am now able to add the image to my Sci-Fi collection.

The image relates to one of the many stories in the book and depicts devices which slow planetary rotation and hints at the endless conflict between successive waves of colonisers.

I had a lot of fun with this over the Xmas break.

My artwork ranges from the traditional, to the slightly offbeat.

With the wildlife and landscape, paintings, I like a more photo-realistic approach, with light, colour, emotion and a sense of space, being key components.

My cartoons are a little quirky, with themes and styles varying according to mood.
