I cannot take credit for this lovely drawing. It is an illustration by Pam Copestake and is here because I would like to share something with you.
After a storytelling a while ago, I published a drawing of Smudge the Mouse by the rather talented little Georgia Lindsay (seeTameside Libraries).
Her Grandad, Peter, recently made contact with me and it turns out that Georgia has quite an artistic family. These drawings were done by Peter's sister in law, Pam, for her husband, David Copestake's funeral. He too was an artist, hence the idea.
I was so taken with the drawings that I thought you might like to see them too. She is now in her 70's and lives in Aintree outside Liverpool. She has never been a professional illustrator but Peter tells me she's just won a local art competition on the theme of Liverpool as City of Culture.
Well done Pam, and thank you for letting me share your lovely drawings with others.
