Always nice to work with talented people and I was delighted to work with Matt Reilly (poet) again. I wanted to create something for a mining museum which had a feeling of warmth and nostalgia. When I spoke to Matt about him producing a poem I told him this and gave him some dialect words to incorporate into the poem. I created this illustration from a photo I took when I was at woodhorn. The colours and feeling I think are spot on. I'm loving the love this has already received.
