Pride in Bournemouth Launch

Managed to kill two birds in one stone last night, after attending my bournemouth Grad show I managed to hop along to the opening night of Pride in Bournemouth. The fifty Lion sculptures will be going out at the end of June all around the town. Here are some of the Lions from last night

Tutoring hens . . .

Life drawing for hen parties! A rather odd position as a tutor I am now doing over the summer; teaching hen parties life drawing. Should be quite entertaining . . .http://www.henparty.me.uk/html/links.html

The creatures lived in harmony . . .

                                                                Panic broke

                he couldn't shine anymore

Birds canoodling.

This is the first bit of colour the book has seen! This is part of a double page montage of animals in trees, took all day just to do that segment of the page, got to find a faster way of working. 

Ah. I have just been told that my birds both look like they are feeling a little saucy!
