News: What the Dickens? Cover

As the issue is now out, I'm allowed to reveal my artwork was selected as the cover of What the Dickens? magazine, in the creative teams' own words a 'bi-monthly magazine for writers, readers and all literary types'.

What the Dickens? Issue 2 cover
WTD? Issue 2 focuses on the dual themes of Charles Dickens and Love. While the latter is a common theme for February due to Valentine's Day falling smack-dab in the middle of the month, Dickens-themed celebrations will also be seen throughout February due to the author's bicentenary taking place on the 7th.

I was approached by WTD's lovely editor, Victoria,  as my Great Expectations themed-art was a sort of marriage (no pun intended) of the two themes.

A big thank you to everyone at WTD for this wonderful opportunity!


  1. Today is 200 years since the birth of Charles Dickens so I thought I should pop in now the rush has died down and say a HUGE thank you for letting us use your gorgeous artwork for the front cover of the magazine!

    It is amazingly perfect! I have just tweeted and directed people here also. I've put it pretty much all over web and it is being admired over the globe...

    Your a fantastic artist :)

    1. Thanks so much again, I was delighted that you wanted to use my image as your cover!
