One of the most independent painters of his period famous most for paintings of female nude.

One Day, One Event, One Illustration: 18th Feb

Continuing our new online project I present to you the story of Elm Farm Ollie; the first cow to fly in an aircraft on the 18th February 1930! 
They milked her mid flight and parachuted cartons of fresh dairy goodness to the spectators below - no word of a lie.
In homage to Elm Farm Ollie (otherwise known as Sky Queen) here is my very own flying cow. 
I thought after the recent UK horse-instead-of-cow supermarket scandal it was only fair that cows have a bash at the 'mystical flying creature' niche market.

By the way guys - the Valentine's Workshop was a roaring success! Stay posted for pictures!

One day, one event, one illustration

Hello guys!
We are back with a new exciting illustration project!
Every Monday, one member of HG will illustrate an event or a birth that happened on that specific day!
Today, it is my turn, and here is what happened 36 years ago...

On 11th February 1977 was caught off in Nova Scotia, Canada,  the heaviest crustacean, a 20.2kg lobster!! This is the heaviest lobster that has been recorded since. Yes I know, that's massive and huge on your plate... Here is the illustration that goes with this crazy catch.

What do you think? Would you like to have a lobster pattern in your home like this one?

We also have another exciting event taking place at Museum of London. We will be running Valentine's workshops on 14th February! It is already sold out but stay around, we will share pictures with you!
