'Enter a realm of fantastic beasts & legends
with this colourful illustrated compendium exploring
the mythical creatures of Wales'
Wales is a modern Celtic nation situated on the lower West coast of the British Isles and is a country that holds a special place in my heart, I grew up surrounded by the stunning countryside, dramatic landscapes, legends of King Arthur, dragons and tales of mysterious creatures that inhabited the land. Over the years I built a career through my art work, which has been heavily influenced by Welsh culture and inspired by fantasy, nature and ancient mythologies from around the world.
I'd love to take a moment to introduce you to my latest art book which has been over 4 years in the making; 'Welsh Monsters & Mythical Beasts' an illustrated guide, containing numerous creature profiles and legends accompanied by detailed ink and watercolour illustrations:
Sadly in Wales many of our legends and mythical creatures have been forgotten over time. So it became my mission to bring them back to the fore-front of Welsh culture and introduce them to a new generation, whilst at the same time sharing our rich mythology with the world.
I launched the 1st edition of this book in 2016 and I received an overwhelmingly positive response. People all over Wales started sending in even more legends of mythical beasts from their local areas. There was so much new material that naturally it inspired me to expand on the original book and create a second edition.
The new book is double the size of the original and features a gold foil cover, even more creatures and an additional section dedicated to Welsh fairies. There is also the option to add an additional Sketchbook which will contain all the concept sketches and show how the book was created.
HOW TO PRE-ORDER:
The book currently is available to pre-order on Pledge-manager until the end of October
