Art Prints for Drawn Together Art Collective

Maria NilssonComment

I have completed a new collection of Moon prints, in collaboration with artist Rebecca Hunter, for Drawn Together Art Collective. The prints are based on the names of the all the full moon of the year. My personal favourite is September's full moon called the Harvest Moon (like the lovely Neil Young song). The collection have proved very popular at markets and craft fairs this autumn, with many customers buying the prints as birthday presents and gifts. We've had customers collect all the birthday moons of their family. It's such a lovely idea, and something we never even considered when we created them. To view the full collection please visit:

‘Swifts” Illustration created for Toast Travel magazine article by Matt Collins.

"When I remember looking up at the incoming swifts racing along the roofs of my May-time commute, I picture them against this light; against these buildings. There may indeed be a proven relationship between the level of sunlight and the pace of the bird’s activity, yet regardless, I remember swifts as silhouettes upon illuminated upper storeys. Their shrieks and screams speeding through streets and darting between buildings display an enjoyment of the city landscape as great as any I’ve witnessed, perhaps greater, even, than our own."
