A request from the fabulous Beth S.

JAG - Turneresque???? Hardly!

Matt - cheers pal. I recall you are responsible for a very fine illustration about that book also.

Boris - I know this commercial. It has that funny sea shanty over it.

Oscar - I should have made it that. I love Edward Lear. I did some illustrations for The Jumblies some years ago.

Doodlers - no-one in my drawings makes it home safely I'm afraid....

The Shell commercial by Richard Williams mentioned by Boris above, was animated by the fabulous Russell Hall (with whom I had the pleasure of working together in a project for Paul McCartney) and designed by lovely Rowland B. Wilson.

I call it as I see it and it reminds me of Turner.

Beware of anorexic dancers!
I'd rather go for the hippos and elephants of "Fantasia"

I would love to see a children's book illustrated by you like the three set up illustrations you did here.
