Advertising where Des was asked to set up a creative department. Returning to the Island Des found inspiration from its beautiful land and seascapes so much so that he put pencil to paper and so a new Manx artist was born. The Gallery pages display a number of scenes where you can purchase prints. Des is a noted Caricaturist and is commissioned to do them for presentations and celebrations a real fun thing and highly regarded by those who receive them. Des has been commissioned to produce Christmas cards for those who require a personal approach.
