The Miners' Church, Buninyong

I've just had an email from an old client (old as in the year 2005).  She and her husband own a church which was converted into a bed and breakfast.  It's near a town called Buninyong, north west of Melbourne in Australia and it was built to service the spiritual needs of Cornish miners who came to work in the area during the goldrush of the 1850s.

I designed an illustration of the church which now sits proudly on the front page of their website. 

Not only that but a large reproduction of the illustration adorns their van.

Eight years later and they've even got bookmarks.  Is there no end to the flexibilty of a Pen & Ink illustration?  So the moral of this is:  when you are next in Victoria and you are looking for a place to put your feet up, the Miners' Church should be your first port of call.  Relax in wonderful luxury and admire our illustration wherever you look.

A new design

This is a design I've been working on.  Its based on Kylie the merry-go-round horse (see below).

Lowestoft Steam Trawler

I have just completed some designs based on the steam trawlers or "Crownies" that used to sail from Lowestoft from the 1920s to the 1950s.  They must have been quite a sight (and smell).  Sadly none of these steam trawlers have survived and those that were not sunk or bombed in the war were scrapped.
