Rough Sketch: Finished Piece


I'm finally getting back to normal after a few very hectic weeks of moving house and studio.
Here are a couple of images where I located the artwork and the original rough sketch. It always makes for an interesting comparison.
The picture above is from "The Names upon the Harp" by Marie Heaney, and the one below is a poster I did for Polka Children's Theatre.
"The Starlight Cloak" is a version of "Fair, Brown and Trembling", a kind of Irish "Cinderella".

These look lovely! So enchanting! I have never heard of "Fair, Brown and Trembling" before. I'll have to look into that!

Wow...both are absolutely brilliant, PJ! I love the Starlight Cloak illustration especially, very magical.

I hope you're all settled in in your new home and studio. I wish you much success and inspiration in your new setting.

Thanks so much Kendra, Aladine and James
I'm delighted that you like these pics.
I haven't read "Fair, Brown and Trembling" for years but I think it's a goodie.

I'm pretty well settled now thanks James,
The position of my new studio is great and it's a real buzz to be back in the centre of town.
There are a few teething troubles such as trying to use mobile broadband which is a bit unstable, but I'll get used to it.
Best regards
PJ
