I am saddened by the plight of the magnificent Sumatran Tiger. So much so I felt compelled to create a piece of artwork from photos I had taken at Dudley Zoo . Joao is a young male and is part of a conservational captive breeding program. He made a fantastic (and challenging subject) and the piece took me months to complete. What started out as a 'fun' picture became a labour of love and got me thinking that it would be great to create a whole series big cat portraits in the same style. The artwork is soon to feature on on Derwent Pencils official blog.

COLLABORATION WITH TALKING PICTURES TV
A special year for Renown as our iconic film Scrooge: A Christmas Carol celebrates its 65th Anniversary. To celebrate, the talented artist Steve Lilly has produced some beautiful LIMITED EDITION prints of the brilliant Alastair Sim. There will be only 100 of these in existence so do take up this brilliant offer to preserve for generations to come.
"We love working with Steve! Apart from the fact that his work is sublime-certainly the best pencil drawings of the Dad's Army cast that we have ever seen, he is a genuinely lovely guy, who still gets embarrassed when we tell him how wonderful his work is. We have formed a brilliant working relationship with Steve and class him as very much part of our very successful team." Corinne Fulford, Charles Burrell & Dad's Army Museums
"Each portrait is remarkable not only for the artistic skill involved, but also for how it manages to capture so perfectly the expressions and mannerisms which bring each character to life" Jacqui Gray (The Journal)
”The 2nd most popular event of last year’s festival was ... Steve Lilly! Beaten by John Bishop ... and beating the Hairy Bikers! ...(This was based on unique visitors to the official festival website).”….Dave Freak (Birmingham Comedy Festival Organiser).
