“Nonsense and Balderdash” cried Sergeant Rock Hard of Her Majesty’s Guard.. “There’s NO Such Thing as a Ghostie”.
This is from ‘There’s No Such Thing as a Ghostie’, written by Cressida Cowell and illustrated by me, way back in 2004.
A lovely thing happened the other day, I was emailed with a link to a blog Creating Misericordia and was delighted to read about how the blog creator , Katy, had made a Sergeant Rock Hard costume for her soon to be 3yr old son. The costume was superb and I was amazed to see how much detail she had picked up on. Very flattered.
So I wanted to do something special for her son. I set about trying to do him a picture of said Sergeant (-surprisingly difficult to try to capture how I painted back then) I hope he likes it.
