They Draw and Cook

One of my illustrations is today featured on the wonderful website They Cook and Draw

Cooking and drawing are on of my two favourite pastimes, so to feature on this site is a great bonus!

This follows on from a recent major commission I completed for Castle Melamine where I illustrated favourite British dishes.
