Big shout out to Olivier Marc Thomas Leger

I am overwhelmed by the generosity of incredible UK artist, Olivier Marc Thomas Leger. Olivier decided to send everyone who shared his Facebook page a Narwhal print. Luckily for him, this was for a limited time only because I think he was staggered by the response- he ended up sending 480 parcels! 

Mine arrived today, it is just completely gorgeous, utterly heartfelt and yes, I cried. I cried at the beauty of his work infused with the knowledge that surely, he is depicting these amazing creatures amidst climate change?

An artist I have never met sent me this!

Can't wait to buy a frame and hang this beauty on my wall.

Narwhal, unicorn of the sea? I think so.

I can't draw very well and instead I like to live vicariously through the hands of proper artists, what would I do with out them? My soul feeds from their work.

If you like what you see, his website is here, of course you can find him on Facebook, his Twitter is here, and he'll be exhibiting in:

London (7th-10th April, Victoria House and 6th-9th Oct, Truman Brewery)
Belper (1st-2nd May, Belper Art Trail)
Bristol (22nd-24th July, Arnolfini, TBC)
Leicester (16th July- 1st October, New Walk Museum)
Loughborough (13th October - 19th November, Sock Gallery)
Glasgow (Septemeber, Art Pistol) 

That's all for now!
