Derwent Competition winner!

We are extremely proud to announce that Alan Jones (a director of Mako Creative) has won the Decorate Derwent competition! His entry entitled “Derwent colours the world” was drawn with Derwent studio coloured pencils onto cartridge paper. This will be used as Derwent’s avatar on Twitter, Facebook and in some of their future advertising.

“I was completely blown away“ says Alan, “I never thought that my entry stood a chance as the standard of entries was so high! I really enjoyed drawing it, I wanted to convey something really bright, colourful, vibrant and fun, which of course represents Derwent’s culture!"
"I am over the moon and so proud to be the winner, especially from a company as large and as prestigious as Derwent."
Alan has just recently been inspired for his love of drawing to pick up his pencils and produce some wonderful artwork. He specialises in pets, wildlife and portraiture and has been busy producing a number of private commissioned pieces of work.

He works in graphite, coloured pencils and pastels from photographs.

His latest, he is also proud to announce, is a commissioned drawing from Derwent themselves! Watch this space!
