So I'm an avid tree climber after that first weekend at Igfest 2010 I will never forget. I played a game called UpTrees, part of Henrik Dahles 2010 project to climb a tree everyday for a year. It forced me to cross an adult fear of foolishness and remember just how bloody great it is to be up a tree.
My talented friend Jo Keeling commissioned me to illustrate for her beautiful new magazine Pretty Nostalgic this summer and would you adam and eve it, it was for a piece on climbing trees. (I think she knew, deep down, that I was the right person for the job)
The rough design I sent to Jo for approval.
And the final design.
