Thank You Mr. Stickland for the info. It must be grand living in a city with so much history. To look at a house or building and know it's been standing for hundreds of years. To touch the stones and wonder about the people who built it and the people who lived in it.

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend.
Helen and I had a great time, a sprightly Adam Ant on Saturday and Sunday rebuilding our shed up at the allotment, before giant bubbles in the park with all the kids.
Hooray for +Rowan Stickland making such a good job of building it as a studio for his mum first time round. Now all I need is a nice potting bench and an armchair. Oh and a roof!

The Tower of Lettuce
To be precise it's a Tower of Parsley, Coriander and Lettuce.
Made of PET plastic water bottles, bottoms cut off, lids removed and theaded onto a bamboo cane, then filled with compost. I then made holes in the bottles and planted some live supermarket saladings.
Only made this a couple of days ago, so they're still picking up!

You can add a water reservoir bottle on top, with a pinhole in it (sealed around the bamboo, drill a hole to suit in the bottle top, possibly a little silicone sealant) and then another bottle bottom underneath to catch and recycle the water.
If it works it would be great for a small space garden, yard or balcony.

There's a Tower of Violas now too!

Here you go +Liz Graham-Yooll!   #TowerofLettuce

Allotment tulips
We grow tulips in pots for the garden and then take them up to the allotment to fend for themselves. Some survive, some thrive. These seem to have enjoyed their neglect.

Up at the crack of dawn and over the hill for a walk with Murphy in the woods. Glorious birdsong, wood anemones shining, bluebells just opening, white stitchwort and primroses in the brilliant blackthorn hedgerows.

Ten Terrible Dinosaurs ...standing in a line...
Just checking the scans for the new edition of Ten Terrible. 
I painted this book in 1996/7 and for some reason best known to myself, used Fabriano watercolour paper, which is much more absorbent than the hard Schoellershammer paper that I usually used, so the colours were a bit pale.
Peely wally is what my father would have said.
So a quick photoshop boost of levels and they're popping off the page.

I don't know what I learned in my music college days.  Mostly practise like a machine, I guess...  I'm learning a lot more since I came to the UK, a surprise, surprise!

I post my work live on G+.
I started 'working out loud' on google+ in July 2011 and it's been a very interesting journey.
Being an artist and sharing my illustration and art on google+ is a unique experience. Much of work that I have created in that time has in some way been crowd-edited by the experience of meeting so many diverse, thoughtful and intelligent people here. Their comments, company, humor and the glimpses into their worlds and disciplines have been incredible gifts.

On my profile I post my about my work, art and design, the world of paper and pop up books, children's books and working with children in schools and libraries, music, gardens and landscape. Dog and daughter, sons and sunshine!

This page is where I post all my new products, promotional experiments and links to my various stores and amazing goodies!

To give you a flavour, here, categorised by engagement, are the most popular Paul Stickland G+ posts!

Principally known for my work as the creator, author, illustrator and designer of children's picture and pop up books, including many bestselling books, such as:

Click here for latest exciting news about Dinosaur Roar!

This has become a wonderful part of my job and probably my favourite.
I have been working with children of all ages for the last twenty years sharing my passion for children's literature and creativity via the medium of children's picture and pop up books, giving author visits and pop-up book workshops for children of all ages and abilities, including those with special needs. 
It's a great privilege and I have had the pleasure to meet and work with children in schools, libraries and at many of the major UK Literary Festivals and Music Festivals, in Europe and the US.
I invariably post about this fascinating part of my life on G+ and have had so much very positive feedback.
