The Kringleset Chronicles: Rise Up, Rise Up! now has it's own song! Kara's magical song from the book has been brought to life thanks to the musical talents of Carmarthenshire based composer Danny Chang and the amazing vocals of young Medi Owen.

Another 50th anniversary in 2018 - Lennon's Revolution, and The Beatles' White Album. I painted this mock 7" single sleeve for Revolution, though it was only ever a B side to Hey Jude. The artwork also has an anniversary of sorts as I first sketched the concept 20 years ago!
