  2. Hi Rod

    Thank you very much! Yes, that would be fantastic and great to meet you too. I am at BrewDog on first Sunday of each month 12-4ish. Failing that just drop me an email and we can go from there.

    Best wishes

  3. Hi Suzanne,

    Sorry to have not been through on Sundays.

    Love all the work you are currently doing! Will need to go out and buy another bottle of Gin, just for the great artwork!

    My 6 year old daughter, Anna has created a fantastic story + drawings about creating homes around planet earth and the moon, elaborate rocket ferry’s for the worlds population to travel too and from the moon and saturn, Santa living together with the good witches over the big mountains at the top of the world etc. Quite an elaborate story, that I think could be captured with simple images and a story line. Would you be interested in possibly doing a book together?

    Please contact me via my email address: rodney.mountain@nhs.net

    All the very best for 2016

    Kind regards

    Rod

    1. Hi
      Not at all. I would imagine you’ve been really busy too.
      Delighted to hear that you love the Porter’s Gin label… I’m really pleased with it! It tastes amazing too, so yes, you must go find some. ☺️
      Your daughter’s story ideas sound amazing! What a clever wee thing she is. Yes, I would be very interested in illustrating her ideas and working with you both. Will email you.
      Best wishes for 2016
      Suzanne
