Teaching at UWIC

Just want to say how impressed I am with all the talented students at UWIC (University of Wales institute, Cardiff). I have for the past weeks had the privilege to work with these illustrators of tomorrow, and it is pure joy! Funny sometimes, one gets bogged down in a routine and its difficult to get inspiration, but teaching seems to have sorted this out for me. I feel it has injected new life blood into my work! I just hope the students get the same amount of inspiration from my classes, as I get from teaching.
Looking forward to the big show!

Another day, another building....

The latest edition of my building motifs, this time for Universitas.

New work for Oss Forældre
