Live at the Loopy Shrew!

I'm looking forward to some live drawing at the Loopy Shrew cafe in Shrewsbury, Shropshire tomorrow. I designed the shrew logo for the Cafe so it seems like the right venue to do my bit in the spirit of the Shrewsbury Cartoon festival.
I'll be there the following Saturday too so you have 2 chances to watch me draw live and obtain an original sketch for a very small amount of money!

Beatrix Potter; imitating her wonderful painting style!

I'm looking forward to appearing live in the Lake District this week and will be drawing Peter Rabbit with kids at Dalegarth Station on Thurday.  I've had some fun attempting to reproduce the beautiful ink line and water colour style that Beatrix used, starting with a rough sketch just like she would have done. My own way of working is very similar although my style is a bit more nutty! Beatrix was a keen student of nature and her animals are very realistic. Her painting style was very delicate and takes some care to reproduce.

Win one of my originals!

Ok, here's my first giveaway! It's original text and artwork of "A doggie bit me" from my new book. The text is a slightly earlier version and the illustrations very like the ones in the final book. The piece is approximately A4 in size and is rendered in ink and water colour on heavy weight water colour paper.
All you have to do for a chance to win is purchase my e book "My pet is a problem" and write a short Amazon review which you then need to paste as a comment to Instagram, facebook or my blog (you can message me if you don't want others to see it.) That way I'll know it is you. I'm running this until I get 50 reviews and then I' ll pick my favourite one! So spread the word, no winner unless I reach the target review number ( I need a little bit back for my generosity).
The book is only about £2.75 to buy so it's great value anyway!
Your entry must be in polite English and you will obviously need to provide me with a postal address if I select your entry as the winner.
