I'm a Very Proud Mum.........


Despite coming from a line of artists and craftsmen, the passion to draw and paint seemed to have only been passed on to me out of my siblings and many cousins. However, I was thrilled when my son showed talent as a child, and now he's an adult I am in awe of his ability, particularly as most of his artwork is done digitally although his 'real' sketches are pretty damn good too. Unfortunately, he is still trying to find a job in which to utilise these talents - times are hard.

This is a mock-up of a book cover he painted recently by way of practise/spec work. You can see more of his work on his blog, Monstertree.

I'm also a bit of a nervous mum....he and his girlfriend have gone to Bolivia on holiday - no Ibiza or Newquay for my boy, no it has to be deepest South America. I have received a brief message to say they arrived safely, so that's one less thing to worry about......

The cover is gorgeous! It's also a great book. I love E. Nesbit.

I am sure you're son and his girlfriend will be fine, but I can understand the worry. Torquay or Ibiza would be easier... :-)
