I can only dream . . .

No, I haven’t become the new favourite illustrator at Faber & Faber (yet . . .) I read ‘Housekeeping’ by Marilynne Robinson a couple of months ago and immediately decided, not only that it’s probably the most beautiful and perfect book I’ve ever read, but that I had to do some drawings for it. I’ve done a cover in the end, because I needed some practise and because I wanted to see if I could sum it all up (for myself anyway) in just one image.

I’ve kept all the blurb and publisher’s details from the copy I read for a little authenticity and so I’m hoping that if I make it very clear that THESE IMAGES ARE FOR SELF-PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY they won’t get cross and make me give them lots of monies I don’t have.
