Eagerly awaited and now for sale is this new Terry Pratchett Calendar for 2015.
The beautifully illustrated calendar has 12 stunning images painted by the very talented Stephen Player and commissioned by Orion Books
Terry Pratchett needs no introduction of course , having invented his wonderful Discworld to us all, and Stephen has worked with Terry on various collaborations including "Streets of Ankh-Morpork" and Discworld maps and character designs for the screed adaption of "Hogfather"
Stephen teaches illustration at the Academy of Art University in the US and has been proudly represented by Artist Partners for many years
Sutherland-based artist Mark Edwards has another brilliant show at the Catto Gallery in Hampstead from October 2nd - 21st October .... His wonderful paintings depict scenes of men in great coats and bowler hats in snowy, wooded landscapes. Working from a former shepherd's cottage, his "The White Wood" series has led him to being "described as a modern master of a very British form of surrealism".
The Catto Gallery in Hampstead, London, will exhibit 24 new original canvases from the series next month.
Edwards, who also illustrates books, said: "For me The White Wood is to do with silence, memory, separation and things that I still don't really understand, occasionally humorous yet sometimes disturbing.But where I once felt uncomfortable and tense, now I'm far more at home with the surreal and intangible"
Edwards studied fine art at London's Medway Art College and then Walthamstow College of Art in the 1960s. He then moved north to the rundown property on the shores of Loch Hope.
Alongside his painting, he worked as a gillie on the neighbouring Duke of Westminster estate, but stopped in 2007 and began creating art from which The White Wood series emerged.
Edwards now paints from his remote studio in a cottage in Sutherland.
