Local Greetings Cards

We have pleasure in announcing the launch of a range of 4 quality local greetings cards.

The first local greetings cards designs to be available as greetings cards are of Tiptree Windmill, The Jam Factory Tiptree), Maldon Promenade, and The Hythe (Maldon).

The cards are an impressive size, measuring 9x5.5 inches (just under standard UK letter size so use a standard stamp). They are printed on quality stiff white card and are blank inside for your own personal geeting. The greetings cards come with a white matching envelope in cellophane.

At present the greetings cards are available from the Wilkin & Sons Tiptree Jam Shop, and the Cheap Shop in Church Road Tiptree. Other retailers will be announced shortly!

My Drawing of Maldon and its waterfront

New year's day 2013 was a bright, clear, slightly chilly morning in Essex.

My wife and I decided to take a stroll from Heybridge into Maldon and along the promenade. Beauty was everywhere. Morris dancers dance and struck sticks outside the Queen's, the smell of chimneys laced the air and seabirds were flying in tighly packed groups like starlings are famed for, each sharp turn flashing white as the sun caught their wing surfaces. Hundreds of people were walking their dogs and strolling with their families to grab some post-Christmas fresh air and enjoy the free scenery. Beautiful.

I caught this view (how could one miss it?) looking back at the Hythe over the lazy curve of the Blackwater estuary. The drawing can be seen during its creation in time lapse here.

You must visit Maldon and enjoy for yourselves!

Drawing of Maldon

Maldon Essex drawing
The Promenade Maldon Essex

Maldon in Essex , famous for it's Sea Salt, attracts countless visitors to its door. The draw of a pretty high street full of independent shops, pubs dotted on every corner, Hythe Quay and Promenade Park together make for an irresistible combination of tourist attractions in one place. And illustration!

Promenade Park hosts all manner of events throughout the year and the Splash Park is a hit with the kids during the hot summer months.

My drawing is of Promenade Park's ornamental lake with its Swans, catching the reflection of St Mary's Church (origins as far back as the Saxons) atop the hill, and the Queen's Head can just been seen to the far right, masts popping skyward, and no doubt full of patrons enjoying the company of friends, whilst seagulls soar, and skippers ready their boats. If you are lucky you might just catch a Thames Barge.

If you've never been, go. You won't be disappointed.
