Easter Rain, 2014. Sepia ink, sepia powder, tinted charcoal, watercolour and gouache on recycled paper, 132 x 112mm.

My Easter weekend was spent visiting Blackgang Chine and Dinosaur Isle on the Isle of Wight with my friend, Marc (the magpie). It rained implacably on the Sunday, and though I had a wonderful time and the apparent dreariness in this illustration by no means encapsulates the experience, it does however make for a humorous picture and adds a dose of bathos which I think Marc would have appreciated.
