PEAR TREE LOG

pear tree log: I started this blog to keep my younger son, Jonny, in touch with life in Lincolnshire, while he spent a year working in China. That year turned into five! Now he is home and training to become a physics teacher. This is simply a patchwork quilt of some of the things I enjoy - life in rural Lincolnshire, our animals, friends, architecture, books, the gardens, and things of passing interest.

Continuing the love affair, by candlelight

I love this character, he is an eccentric old dragon, who potters around his draughty old castle and spends his time reading.    Quite appropriate, given my post about books, see yesterday.  


He was created by my older son, Tim, who is a lead character artist in the games industry.  


Tim was destined to be an artist - even as a young child he could capture the essence of a subject in just two or three quickly drawn lines.


He knows how much I love his work - so, for Christmas, he had three of my favourite designs printed and framed for me.  I'll post the other two at a later date.


His work can be seen at www.badpolygon.com

  13. Knatolee, I am truly proud of him, he was determined to make a living from his art and he has for the last 9 years or so. He lives it and breathes it.
