Feral bushes

I was hunting around for illustrations to send to my agents - Law Ltd - to go on their website, and I came acros this. It is an illustration to Uncle Montague that I had completely forgotten about. It comes from a really early stage in the book's development when I was seeing Edgar's chat with Uncle Montague happening in a kind of 1950s fantasy world, and the stories being Victorian/Edwardian.

The drawing is of Edgar walking past the topiary bushes that have gone wild. It is a bit fussy and the figure of Edgar doesn't quite work. But I like the bushes.
