Bagpiper Squirrel – still in progress

The Bagpiper Squirrel painting is still in progress, but I find that by posting along the way, it prompts me to make time for work on it. If you go to my Work in Progress: The Lab page, you can see all the posts in sequential order. (19)

Martin Harris

"The Piglet and the Sorcerer"

"The Piglet and the Sorcerer"

Melbourne based artist Martin Harris creates candy-drenched children’s fantasylands in the most delicate watercolours of amazing and enchanting detail. Of his art Martin says, “My pictures attempt to lift the veil as it were so that others may glimpse this ‘other world’’. My fascination and love of children’s picture books, comics, toys, 1960’s television (Thunderbirds, Dr Who, and Pinky & Perky to name but a few) combined with my childhood memories and my love of animals are the basis and inspiration for my art.

Martin is working towards publishing his artwork for children’s books and is currently working doing illustrations for Lonely Planet travel guides.

Showcase September 2009! See here.
