Varoom! Isn't that a glorious name for a magazine? It's produced by the Association of Illustrators and the latest issue is about the Muse – where and how people find their inspiration.

Included is a look at natural history illustration and the work done by illustrators for the Ghosts of Gone Birds project, taking extinct birds as their inspiration while also using their work to raise awareness of the threat facing many species now.

Alongside beautiful examples from the heyday of natural history illustration, there are a few pieces made for the Ghosts exhibition – and among those is my Red Snail-Eating Dodo.

I still have a few prints left from the show which are now available to buy from my shop.
You can also buy them from the Ghosts of Gone Birds shop.
And you can read more about the inspiration for my work here.
