Re; a bit of self promotion....

Further to my post regarding the Irby Artists Association exhibition - I'm pleased to say that I actually sold a drawing!  It was called 'Joy', and you can view it in my photo album in the UKCPS Yahoo Group page.

Alan Jones in the news

North Wales member, Alan Jones, has been commissioned by Derwent Pencils to produce a drawing of a bear cub to be reproduced onto the front of their sketchbooks. "I couldn't believe it when Derwent approached me" said Alan. "This is a huge honour and I am very humbled that Derwent chose me to produce the drawing, but I am glad they did!" The drawing took over 15 hours to produce using Derwent soft graphite H, 2B & 8B pencils onto Derwent A3 cartridge. "Derwent pencils are really a joy to use, you can sharpen them to ultra fine points and lay a really rich velvety layer of graphite down to build up subtle shades with precise control."

These quality sketchbooks will be on sale in an art store near you anytime soon.
More of Alan's fine animal drawings can be viewed in his album via the UKCPS YahooGroup Forum.
(if you are a UKCPS member and not in the Yahoo Group Forum then you are missing out on seeing some wonderful pictures in the members albums - contained in the 'Photos' section of the group page)

Also It has just been announced that Alan's entry 'Pleasureland' won 3rd place in Ms Poem's Cover Star Illustrator competition!  Follow the link:


Alan is over the moon with this as the standard was extremely high.  Drawn in Derwent Studio Coloured pencils onto white A4 cartridge paper.  He wins a copy of the book and Derwent sketching pencils.
