Radio Times at Christmas

Here's the second part. This one is for the christmas edition of the Radio Times (out today), to illustrate a Radio 4 programme by Ian Hislop investigating the origins of the 'three wise men' in the christmas nativity. Apparently there is barely a mention of them in the bible, but they are a key part of the modern nativity. Sounds like an interesting programme, I'll certainly be listening!

Here's the first part of what I've been working on over the last couple of weeks. These are illustrations for the Radio Times, a popular and long-running TV and radio listings magazine, and a bit of an institution in the UK, so I was very proud to have worked on them. Both are for the radio lead page, the first to illustrate David Jason's reading of 'A Christmas Carol' on Radio 4. For anyone not familiar with David Jason (most people in the UK will know him well), feel free to google his name for reference. The Scrooge illustration is out today in the 13-19th December issue (with Nigella Lawson on the cover), and the next will be in the christmas issue on sale this Saturday, so I will share that with you then. For now I hope you enjoy this one.
