12 Days of Christmas

Ultimate Responsive Image Slider Plugin Powered By Weblizar

The Twelve Days of Christmas is a well known English carol dating from the 18th Century , although probably originates from France.

My idea for illustrating this book came from the wish to step away from the traditional and usual way this text is illustrated. I therefore decided to use images from around the world to illustrate each verse, for example drummers from Malawi for the  ‘ten drummers drumming’. The book has just been republished in a new size and and format and for the relaunch I have was commissioned to go to Boston in the USA to decorate a 10 foot Christmas Tree with new creations from the story.
