Cinderella

Something a little seasonal, Cinderella, compositionally inspired by Millais' 'Cinderella'. (Well, she's sitting down with a broom, so I suppose that's similar!)

There's a little story behind this one: when I was a kid there was a print of Millais' Cinderella on the wall of the house where my mother grew up. I loved it, so this is indirectly my homage to that pic. Millais was interesting as he was a founder member of the Pre-Raphaelites and one of the first 'fine' artists to get wise to how his work could feature in advertising.

Tarot Awards

After the Christmas break it's rather lovely to come back to some rewarding and wonderful news... 'The Steampunk Tarot' has been awarded Tarot of the Year by Tarosophy Website for Professional Tarot readers. It's a fantastic honour and recognition for Barbara Moore's writing and my artwork, and I'm enormously grateful.

My artwork also received Best Artwork from The Tarot Lady website, which is rather fantastic and flattering. Thank you Theresa Reed!

Rosie Poe

An image I started ages ago! Rosie Poe (and her cat Crowley), my intermittent web comic. Occasionally I like to imagine her as slightly more 'realistic'. This was one of those times. Cartoony real, anyway! :) The blog is here: http://rosiepoe.blogspot.co.uk/
