In Jersey, looking for pirates – April 2014

A relaxing week in Jersey. We explored a bit, ate well, and learned about the history from before the tax haven days and before the World War Two occupation. Pirates and smugglers everywhere.jersey 190414That’s what it felt like, but it looks more like this:

    Beautiful illustrations, with so much detail. How long did it take you to complete Sarah and Duncan’s lovely house with all those toys in front of it?

      Thanks Nell. I spent most of the week doing bits and pieces of drawings. I like how different people’s homes are characterised by different things, in this case the range of vehicles for small people to zoom around on.
