Here’s a quick screen shot of a painting I’ve done for Frome Open Studios, inspired by my local (pub), The Griffin. It is on Milk Street, opposite this sign and has a brewery (The Milk Street Brewery). It also has a pool room upstairs, where I am the undefeated champion at table football.

A couple of weeks later, I was enrolled and committed to doing an exhibition in July. It’s called Frome With a View (Frome is pronounced Froom) and it is going to be about the town from a cartoonist’s perspective.
