    Illustration for Strange Trees book
Illustration for a double page spread in the 'Club Brenda - Strange Trees' book.

A place they can shelter.
Share colour together.

‘Imagine what a club would be like if it combined bands, performanceart and a deliberately eclectic music policy…if it reached out toeveryone: gay, straight, black, blue; but in particular, welcomedlife’s uglier ducklings - the outsiders, the strange ones…’
