This is an excerpt from David Gaffney’s book Concrete Fields

One of my favourite things to do is to draw each of the performers taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest while they perform and then post up that image before the next one starts.

This is a video for Jim Guthrie’s song The Rest Is Yet To Come, from the album Takes Time, released in May 2013.
