On a blazing hot Saturday just past I got to take part in the New Forest Arts Festival in Lyndhurst along with other artists, dancers and creative types. It was roasting, but protected beneath my bright yellow gazebo I knuckled down on a two metre wide New Forest themed cartoon.
While I was drawing away we had a table set up to encourage children and adults to have a stab at cartooning themselves, something that's always fun to share, especially when the results delight the person with a previously undiscovered skill.
I just about completed the cartoon before the 4pm finish, and with the heat still beating down it was the perfect excuse to seek liquid refreshment. Thanks to all those that stopped by and said hello, bought my children's books, and took part in the cartooning.
