Gray's Garden

when she was trying to tell me that she has watered the flowers at Gray's Garden, she said : "Graham's …..", the second word slipped from her mind, and she looked slightly frustrated. But the next second she was smiling gently and contentedly. She was glad that the flowers were looking great at her late husband's garden, where his ashes were buried beside his favourite tree.

Mrs Pratt

Mrs Pratt lives across the road from me. She has a cat called Molly. She loves flowers, especially
pink Oriental Lilies. I made this drawing of her last year.

sowing seeds

a man is sowing some magic seeds at night. he does it every night, and the seeds he has planted the night before have started to sprout. this man is afraid of the world and life in general, but the seeds he sows will guard him and watch over him.

Drinking tea with me

Graham passed away two years ago from today. I made this portrait of him and Beverley as young, proud parents of little Jono.

Auntie Elaine and Uncle Garth

Auntie Elaine is the younger sister of my mum-in-law. She is sweet, gentle and has so much energy. This painting of a younger version of her and Uncle Garth I made on a cardboard, and made it with a smile. I gave it to them and they liked it very much. :-D

going home






a short history of everything

jon had an idea for his album of original songs and asked me to draw for him...here are a sketch and the final drawing...
he wanted himself walking on one side of the globe and me on the other side, since I drew him carrying an ukulele I thought I would show myself carrying a giant paint brush:-D the stuff inside the globe are inspired, sort of,  by some of the titles of the songs in this album

I made a slightly detailed one and changed his idea of me walking on the globe to a young Jon instead. yep.
