Under Milk Wood, written by internationally acclaimed Welsh writer Dylan Thomas, was an instant success when first performed in New York and it is still fascinates fans the world over.

 

In one day only, this masterpiece of language, lays bare the human experience of passion, love, hatred, humour and sorrow. 

 

It has been a lifelong dream to illustrate Under Milk Wood. Now, seventy years after it was first broadcast, I have undertaken the challenge of drawing it. After years of work I can present to you over thirty drawings, representing thousands of hours of dedication, all completed with just a handful of pencils and Dylan's words for inspiration.

 

To begin at the beginning...

 

Please note, the original drawings will be on national tour across Wales for most of 2024 & 2025, if you would like information aboiut the tour please join my mailing list by using the contact form at the bottom of my homepage.
