A series about people that have influenced my creative path
One of the things I remember most strongly from my childhood are the books that I read and were read to me. There were many favorites, in particular the books illustrated by Edward Ardizzone RA (1900-1979). The stories of Nurse Matilda, Stig of the Dump and Little Tim were fantastic, exciting and imaginative but what really captivated me were his drawings. Deceptively simple they immediately convey the energy of the situations described on the pages. Even as a child I recognised that there was something very special about them.
