We're bringing him out now as a 'throwback' to make you all consider your new years resolutions, How cruel.

Bonnie Be Bad!

David De Les Heras has wowed us all in his first commission with CIA For an article in Scotland in Trust. David was asked to subtly depict the Bonnie Prince Charlie and his darker side – domestic abuse, financial problems, infidelity and political shenanigans.
