It's been an interesting decade for me and maybe I'll write a proper round up in the next few days, but for now I'll post today's Illustration and urge you to read the article here, as it is an interesting read.

I was pretty pleased with the result and happy that I had created the right sort of atmosphere using the minimal colour palette I had chosen.
