More Illustrations for the Scottish Book

Yes I am back on the trail after spending a fews off work and not really doing anything of note bar clearly out the office come art studio. I have to say that I feel much better now that I can see my sofa and carpet again, lol. Anyway enough of the domestic, firstly I would like to say that I won  a prize of "Postie Dice" from Ray at Dont Throw a One and I hopefully will be having the dice soon, so thanks very much there Ray for them and I can't wait to receive them.

Secondly as the title suggests I have start of the next illustrations for Si at Solway next book named Armies and Enemies of the Scottish republic. This chap is a socialist from the Clyde area and having strong docking and naval traditions there I went with a chap wearing his Sunday best tweed or checked jacket with a red scarf and in keeping with the naval theme and traditions there a Breton Cap. He has a Soviet made carbine and "home-made" locally manufactured webbing. I rather like the pose of him giving a fag to another chap, more on that later.

Red Clydesider, Scotland, 1938
