For some time, I have been wanting to produce a calendar of my views of my hometown, Ilkeston. I feel lucky to have grown up in such a diverse area of Derbyshire, at that time with heavy industry and rolling countryside, all portrayed here. I draw digitally and inspire myself from numerous sources of reference and memory. More of my work is on display at the Erewash Museum and dedicated to my teacher Jack Cowley who always encouraged my artistic endeavours. Calvendo calendars are premium products - a bit more pricey than others but with added benefits: Our calendars always look beautiful on your wall because we produce them locally with premium paper and sophisticated spiral binding, ensuring easy turning of pages and flat hanging against the wall. A protective transparent plastic cover sheet provides added stability and each calendar comes in five languages. Treat yourself to a Calvendo calendar and you get something that looks better all year round. This successful calendar was re-released this year with the same pictures and updated calendar.
