An unusual commission and a nice break from the norm involving squirrels in military dress. Having done extensive research on the Napoleonic wars the author wanted the same attention to detail reflected in the art work, albeit with some obvious artistic licence. As these were not children’s books a fine balance had to be reached on the way the illustrations were presented which meant working closely with the author to agree on the style. Along with the two final book covers a number of illustrations were also chosen for publication. All the work was produced in gouache and kept to within a size of A5.

“England not out” was commissioned by a businessman to hang in his local cricket club committee room. He was inspired by a photograph which he wished to be made into an oil painting.
“Happy” was requested by an avid ‘pup’ fan. He requested a painting that would capture a moment of tranquillity within a cloudscape backdrop.
“Wings over Dover” was commissioned by someone who specifically requested two Spits showing off their graceful lines whilst flying over the white cliffs of Dover.A number of draft sketches were made and he was happy to proceed and was delighted with his painting.
“Out of the blue” another Spit commission, this time by an ex-serviceman. He opted for a dramatic head-on shot of two Spitfires from a Lancashire squadron.
Terry was approached by a well known television script writer who required a storyboard to help assist in the presentation of his work to a producer. He commissioned just over thirty images in a storyboard format and were produced using watercolour on A5 paper. The images were representative of the scripts complex storyline involving time-travel and historical characters from the WWll era to present day. The story was based on a ‘what if’ scenario depicting an alternate future.Click any of the 5 images displayed here for a larger view.
