Going Dutch

Another pencil one for BBC History. I'm liking this technique although it does take a lot more time. I love using the layers in photoshop to add the colour but also to colour the pencil lines. This one illustrates the saying 'Dutch Courage' which meant having a wee drinky before battle (usually gin).

Wellcome Trust have done a redesign of their 'Big Picture' Mag. After a lot of nagging they've used some of my illustrations at a larger scale - hurrah! This one to illustrate 'managing risks'. Click this link for more - Wellcome Trust

'Like' a lot

47,000 likes! This old pic seems to have found its way onto a science facebook page. So far it has received over 47,000 likes. That's a lot of people seeing my little joke!
