In 1996 ‘The Scarecrow’ won a pen and ink competition run by the Artists and Illustrators magazine. ‘Fun Stamps Ltd’ went onto manufactue my design as a rubber stamp. Over the years I‘ve also provided illustrations for magazines, newsletters, information booklets, stories, music event guides, murals and tattoo designs.
