AFTER THE late nights that it took to get my book off to the printers 10 days ago and the school drawing workshop and weekend geology walk that have followed I haven’t quite got back into the drawing habit. My sketchbook and Pilot Drawing Pen (0.8 nib) used here go everywhere with me but I’ve been too dazed to sketch - for
example the snow scenes we’ve had.

again but first I’ve got my
book launch . . .
