|Deckchair Dreams 2013|
Various artists have given up their time to design deckchairs. This year's crop of artists 'n' celebs includes Harry Enfield, Miranda Richardson, Ronnie Wood, Martha Freud, and Maggi Hambling.

I did a design for The Royal Parks back in 2008, when the theme was "flora and fauna of the Royal Parks". I picked squirrels. Who doesn't like squirrels?

In 2010 I did another one - this time with pigeons. Not the grotty feral pigeons that people unaccountably feed, but the nice fat colourful wood pigeons that live on a natural diet of nuts and seeds, and amble about looking well fed and cute.
I think I'm the only artist who got to do two deckchairs. Maybe I'll lobby them again next year for a third round. I think the deer in Richmond Park need a deckchair too.

There isn't much profit in deckchairs, it seeems. But they do look nice on your lawn.
