Pencil sketch for "H" 's birthday... when she was a little person.

Gallery Two...

    Commercial art, illustration, portraits from photo's and murals... over the years I've turned my hand to all kinds of things! Someone would ask me to do something and I'd say "errr, yeah...OK" without knowing if I could actually do that?

    One of the most memorable is the mural I painted for my God daughter Hayley. I'd never painted a mural before. Having spent several weeks of evenings and weekends, it was completed a couple of weeks before she was born.

    "H" is twenty now and at Nottingham University... (that's her in the photo) I used acrylic paint which hasn't faded over time, the mural still looks the same as the day I finished it.

"Hayley's Mural" (acrylic) 1984... still survives. "Ryan's Mural" (acrylic) 1994... recently painted out after sale of house. "Kirby UK" (acrylic)... this breaks just about every copyright rule in the book, but that's what the guy wanted... and I would have ended up selling cleaners if I didn't get the job! As to whether the murals still exist... when he moved, he ripped out the panels and installed them in his new office. When Kirby got a lot of bad press in the UK... he disappeared from Croydon, so did the murals!
