Our Patch Spring 2018 Chiswick - Page 10

JOHN’S TOP TIP OUR PATCH SPRING 2018 VILLAGE Limousin Cross T-bone steak and chips at the Anglesea Arms A ZOO OF FUN AT THE LOCAL FREE SCHOOL BREATHES EASY Hammersmith illustrator Louis Fowler has been passionate about zoology since he was at Flora Gardens primary. Now his meticulously observed ink sketches of endangered species are on sale in his local pub. If you’re enjoying a jar in the Stonemasons Arms, Cambridge Grove and an animal catches your eye, unpeg it from the display line and buy it for £20 at the bar. Louis (it’s pronounced ‘Lewis’, rather than like a French king) has made an A-Z series of animals, setting his ink pictures of animals against bright blocks of colour to give the images a dramatic background and bring the animals to the fore. Produced by a specialist printer in Covent Garden, they may one day be brought together into a book. It wouldn’t be his first; Louis has several children’s books to his name, including Nothing Rhymes with Scissors, a cartoon/poetry mix. Ten per cent of his picture money goes to animal conservation. www.onecuts.wordpress.com LOCAL FAVOURITE RUN THE NUMBERS...
