I was asked to create the image for this year’s seasonal greeting to all University of Cambridge alumni. It was another heart-in-mouth white ink and a toothbrush snow moment once the painting was finished. I enjoyed thinking, whilst I was painting it, of famous alumni that would receive this in their inboxes, including my illustration hero, Quentin Blake. I hope he reads his own emails 🙂 I even got to put my maiden name in the credit too, and which year I matriculated, so some of my classmates may have recognised my name. A real thrill, this one.
