Monty Don

A new portrait of TV’s most reassuring gardener. Like Monty Don, I’m also growing tomatoes in my back garden but not many are looking that red yet, or are as big as Monty’s. Fingers crossed though.

This is the 2nd time I’ve done our Monty. The first one was a traditional number: ink, pencil, crayon and all that. This one, however, is drawn straight into Photoshop with my Wacom tablet.

Monty Don [print]

A print of Monty Don at 12×12″ on its way from Etsy to Ajae in Portland. Thank you Ajae. Printed on 230gsm Olmec fine art paper by King of Herrings @kingherrings.

Drawn in pen, gel pen, pencil, crayon, colour pencil and charcoal.

Monty says place them two to three inches apart. Don’t you just love Monty Don? I do. He’s the most reassuring, calming person you could watch. Like Bob Ross, but for gardening. Total Zen. I’ve never had reason to see a urologist, but if I ever do, I hope it’s Monty Don putting on the rubber gloves.
