"Cake & Company"
A calendar for 2020, with illustrations and descriptions of my outdoor swimming experiences. Freezing sunlit mornings and stormy weather; glorious summer swims and daft winter events, skinny-dipping, swims in Clevedon, Bude, Cumbria and Vobster Quay, the Henley Mile and Swim Serpentine... and lots and lots of faffing*.

Dimensions – closed: 210 x 210 mm / 8.25 x 8.25 inch
Dimensions – open: 210 x 420mm / 8.25 x 16.5 inch

The calendar has a lovely feel to it: it starts off as a square booklet, opening out into a wall-calendar.
All artwork, text and design are mine

*Non UK swimmers may be unfamiliar with the word 'faffing', but it is as common as cake amongst swimmers so you are probably familiar with the actual activity. Faffing involves spending a lot of time delaying the moment of actually getting on with the activity of actually swimming, delaying the moment with a dozen unimportant tasks whilst eyeing the cold water (and probably measuring its temperature with several thermometers and discussing the weather, you get the idea). Open water swimming, wild swimming, cold water swimming - call it what you will, this series of drawings is a celebration of swimming and swimmers, and the occasional craziness of our pursuit.

PRINTS: Art quality prints are also available of these images, in a range of sizes - if interested please send me a message. If you would like to see all my swimming drawings they can be found on my sketchbook blog www.waterdrawn.com. You will also find a lot more of my swimming artwork in my new etsy shop: www.waterdrawnart.etsy.com
