At the end of 2011 a little girl called Shannon visited our studio. The visit was organised by the Make a Wish Foundation, a charity that grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses.
Shannon is a huge Blue Nose Friends fan, so I was honoured to be asked to create a picture for her. I was given total freedom, as long as it included her favourite character, Patch. So I took the opportunity to dust off the watercolours and this is the result; a one of a kind piece that I hope brings a smile to Shannon's face whenever she looks at it.
