Fox Tree

Today I finished my Fox Tree.
It's my entry to the Cheltenham Illustration awards in the Emerging Talent category.
The subject this year was Tree Time Tales.

Little Fox is remembering his mother, wrapped in her scarf. The soil feeds the tree that has been there for so long. It has been watching generations of foxes come by and has all the memories engraved in his bark like a totem pole. The circle of life continues.

Guys, I'm so tired I can't believe it. Well I can actually. Moving house, loads of work and so on.
I will soon be posting pictures of my new studio space ... it is really wonderful!

All the best xxx
