All ready at Eden Court Theatre for my first Christmas craft fair.
Delighted to reveal another first for Angus Grant Art: illustrating a newly published book.
Last night I was at the launch of The Red Squirrel: A Future in the Forest by Neil McIntyre and Polly Pullar. You’ve maybe seen it in the news over the past couple of weeks, e.g. this one from the BBC.
The book was funded by a successful crowdfunding campaign, and published by Scotland: The Big Picture. I was asked by Louise at Cairngorm Futures, whose team did the design work, to contribute some illustrations of woodland fauna – and a few squirrel tracks – to go alongside Polly’s text. You can see my pictures below.
It was such a fun project and it was great to meet Neil and Polly and the others involved at the event last night. Really enjoyed hearing Neil’s tales of trying to capture photos of these curious creatures.
And the book looks brilliant – lots of very good-looking squirrels!
You can get a copy from Scotland: The Big Picture.
I’ve just started a Facebook page to share my work with a wider audience. Been thinking about it for a while but finally found a few minutes to set it up.
You can find me (unsurprisingly) at Angus Grant Art. There’s a few posts up there already but I’ll be adding more in the next few weeks.
But don’t worry – I’ll not be forgetting about the website – all the latest news will always be shared here!
