More art from Colin Thompson

Yes - I have another finished Colin Thompson jigsaw to show off to you.  I just love his work.  He is a British Artist who now lives in Australia and he has the most incredible imagination.  I can't afford to buy his artwork  or even if I could I haven't the room to display it so I have resorted to buying his jigsaws.  I love doing jigsaws - always have - so this way I get the best of both worlds.

This one is called 'The Inventors Cupboard' and here is the picture from the box:

Now here is my finished one. This is the best picture I could get indoors.  Bit difficult to cart it outside without losing pieces.  There are a 1000 of them.
Whilst tracking down Colin's artwork looking for future jigsaw purchases I happened on a site in America that sells items made using his artwork.  Of course I was tempted and here is what I purchased:
A Mug - obviously
and this that arrived this morning:
A Tote Bag
Both these items depict "The Bizarre Bookshop 2" - my favourite (so far) of his designs.

So later today I will break up 'The Inventors Cupboard' and start on the next one.  I have four new ones at the moment.  They keep me occupied whilst I still have the trapped nerve.  Although a little better it hasn't untrapped itself yet.
Keep well.


  1. Another wonderful jigsaw,
    Love the mug and tote bag,
    You won't know yourself when the trapped nerve feels itself.

  2. Another fantastic jigsaw that you've done here Carol, I love the mug and bag as well. Maybe someone else will see his work and convince him that craft CD's are that way to go.

  3. A fabulous jigsaw Carol, it looks very detailed - I bet it took a while. My Mum likes jigsaws, she prefers gardens and scenes - I think this would be a bit beyond her.
    A super mug and bag - I wonder if you will use them!

  4. Thank you Pauline. The mug is on display with other 'specials' and I am actually using the bag already. It is very capacious so very useful.
