Wildlife Magazine Illustrations

I was commissioned to provide illustrations in both of the RSPB’s magazines: ‘Birds’ and ‘Bird Life’. These black and white drawings of views, plants, birds and other wildlife accompany the articles. They were created in scraperboard which is an ink-coated board that is scratched with fine tools to reveal the light areas.

A larger illustration of a countryside scene was commissioned for use as a children’s puzzle in the ‘Bird Life’ magazine. I created this view using a linocut with elements such as a fallow deer, lapwings, a dragonfly and irises.
