    • Thank you, John. This was from a book the idea for which I found ready-made in my mind between the bottom escalator and the top escalator in Green Park Station, a book of poems about an imaginary country. The Moonwuzo was the protagonist, he went from one world to the other. I have decided to have the logo with him smaller and flying against a bigger moon – more mysterious, I think.

      • These ideas that seem to come from nowhere sometimes have the most substance, it is strange that. I spent years trying to earn a living, sometimes it was a real strain. That was why I enjoyed projects inspired by other people’s ideas, you were a servant of the project and I found that very satisfying. What is so difficult is trying to drag self-generated ideas out of oneself with the idea of appealing to a publisher, I really didn’t enjoy that, though I did produce quite a bit of work. But it is the ideas from nowhere that always gave me the most delight.
        I can’t paint really big either, my studio is small, but much beloved, so I shall paint BIGGER than a book page, anyway. I still do most of my illustration work “to size”, it shows up the faults, but there you go, that’s the way I work…..

      • Thanks for the share Cara. Most of my work seems to come from nowhere also, although I have a sneaking feeling that it’s all just different forms of inner me…
