Caption: Rather carelessly, Vincent van Gogh had forgotten that ears aren't only for hearing!

You know that opticians now offer hearing aids as well as glasses.….…

.…..Well.….Vincent van Gogh wished they’d offered that ser­vice back in the day, when he nicked him­self shav­ing!   This is yet another of Miko’s cre­ations for his Greet­ing Card Range ‘Artist­ic License’. May­be its a while since you have vis­ited … Con­tin­ue read­ing

You ‘Lovely Linkedin Linker’ Peeps

I was just about to just click the auto thanks reply to those lovely Peeps, when I was inter­rup­ted by a herd of Gnu crash­ing through the stu­dio. On their way, I guess, to green­er pas­tures. Mind you that’s the … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Any Birthdays coming up, or a bare wall that would benefit from a smile?

Chris Packham and I go back a long way

Sort­ing through some old work, I happened upon this ‘real­ist­ic owl illus­tra­tion’ I cre­ated  for the Asda Nature Watch magazine. I didn’t real­ise that our Spring­watch friend Chris Pack­ham was present­ing nature pro­grammes back in the day. I will, how­ever, always remem­ber the … Con­tin­ue read­ing
