The Marsh Harrier Mural

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I’m getting behind on blogging about what I’ve been up to. Hence, this one is mostly pictures. I was asked by my lovely local pub, the Marsh Harrier, to paint a mural to go on the wooden doors along the side of the pub. In keeping with the pub’s name and the imagery on the flyers I’d previously designed, I came up with a silhouetted scene – a little wilderness of flora and fauna. It took two days to complete, not counting the design, and it was a very cold and very public painting job, but it felt great when I finally stepped backed and decided it was finished. If you’re in Oxford, come past and have a look!

Draw Something, Laura! is the smorgasbord of artistic and illustrative creations dreamt up by Laura, an artist and children’s book editor based in Oxford, UK. Laura draws her inspiration from the places and people who surround her, and from the peculiar night-dreams and daydreams that wiggle their way into her mind. Often, these involve prehistoric animals, things in boxes, and her seemingly immortal goldfish, Kurt.
