Hi Matt - I heard the man who used to do Hartley's voice in Pipkins, on Radio 4 the other week. He was happy to say a few words in the 'Hartley' voice - which made me laugh my head off! Thanks for your comment - Vikki

i used to love pipkins when i was a lot younger, it always seemed not as safe as the other kids shows at the time, edgier.

I love your work, especially the way you incorporate poetry and text.

beautiful beautiful artwork :)

Thanks a lot!
Yes, Pipkins was one of my favourites, especially grumpy Hartley. Not many people remember it, I suppose it was a short window of time.
Thanks for your lovely comment.

This is beautiful. It looks like scratchboard. I've been trying to work up my first successful rabbit. I get going and always change it to another animal.

Thanks! I think the trick is in the drawing. I always sketch from a good photo and make sure I get the feel of the animal before I start the actual piece. Keep trying, you'll get there in the end!

Looks like he was surprised by the tortoise while taking a whiz. I dig all the writing in the background. You put some time into this one.

I disagree =) Since Watership down were bunnies, and this is a real rabbit - both are very different kind of animals =) and this one is clearly not a bunny =)
