Barry’s book

My friend Barry is writing a book about his recent experience of learning to use a wheelchair and the wider impact this has had on his life. He’s kindly asked me to illustrate the reflections and anecdotes; some are positive, some not, and each illustration has a colour to match the mood of the piece. Here’s the latest batch, mostly of Barry out and about in Bath. After recent excursions into brush-pens, pencils and dip-pens it’s interesting revisiting my old sketching technique of fountain-pen line, Lexington grey ink-wash shadows, and water-colour; switching between media seems to be a good way to keep things fresh!jhkll jhkll2gjryj2

The rest of the sketches so far…

    These are great, I particularly love the one where Barry is looking up on the bookshelf; really effective use of colour. Any date on the book release yet?

    The picture of Barry looking up at the shelf is the one that stood out for me too. A moving image.
