Matt, I have just found your blog, via your website and I love your art. Not since my days of adoring Ernest Shepard's scratchy ink lines, have I liked anything this much! A line here, a line there and with, what would appear, effortless ease, a masterpiece was born. You have that same quality to me, like a great actor, makes it look so easy, yet it's certainly not!
I'm completely in awe, this little pigeon just proves my point:)
Hope you can post more soon.
Chris

PS Just a little Illustrator trivia: Did you know that Shepard was given no art credit by the publisher in any of the first Milne books? (before Winnie)A.A.Milne thanked him for the art, in his authors introduction pages, but that was all.

Thanks, everyone! Christine, that is the highest praise I can imagine. Shepard was the greatest of them all.
