  1. These are unbelievable. I love brown paper, too, or anything that has a recycled feel...like when artists use mixed media or paint on tattered books. That first one has a Rockwell-ish quality to it, wouldn't you say? I love the BEEF one best though, of course:) xo

  2. Nice to see from that first image that the lovely, much missed, Ivor Cutler hasn't been forgotten.

  3. Beautiful work. I'm with you on the brown paper. It's my favourite wrapping paper always and I own a couple of brown paper artworks and love them too!
