Transatlantic Train

Here's my latest illustration for Focus Magazine's Into The Future column. This month Stephen Baxter looks at the prospect of future trains travelling across the Atlantic in a super-speed magnetic vacuum tube. Presumably leaf-free to avoid delays. See more sci-fi work for Focus here.

Cornish Pip

My wife and I spent the Easter weekend down in Cornwall again, this time staying in Pip the Shepherd's Hut and Pip's Cabin on a lovely farm in Rezare near Launceston. We strolled around the local woodlands before hitting the seaside towns of Polperro and Looe in the blazing sunshine before the drizzle arrived on the last day for visits to Tintagel and Port Isaac. Evenings were mostly spent drinking bourbon and eating red meat around the open fire. Cracking.

The Dead Woman's Ruin

Here's the third in the Post-Invasion Cards set featuring a colossal wreck splayed across the mysteriously titled mountain range of La Mujer Muerta (The Dead Woman). Nice view from the balcony. See the set in more detail on my site here.
