The Art of Christmas
The Menzies Research Institute holds a fundraising event every year called The Art of Christmas. Artists and designers exhibit artworks and a charity auction is held with gala affair. The image above shows the planned drawing (left) and the finished artwork (right).
A selection of artworks are printed into Christmas cards for sale to raise much needed funds for cancer research. I have donated my time to this event yearly since 2005 with my illustrations printed into cards. It gives me a wonderful chance to create something totally new each year and to experiment in different mediums and subject matter.
