Well, the Lenci exhibition certainly inspired me. My sketchbook is full of ideas... even a tea cosy decorated with butterflies, however I can't bring myself to post a tea cosy, it would ruin my image right from the start!
So here are two illustrations taken from my sketchbook. I scanned them in and coloured them on my computer. They were inspired by the wealth of strange plants and trees which adorned a lot of the different sculptures. As often happens when I finish an illustration or pattern I have an idea where it might look best. I just happen to own a lovely Sadler Mug (I think 1930's), with a lovely quirky handle, just perfect for my illustrations.
