'Renaissance Man' is an overworked epithet, but it is true of Martin: an artist, illustrator and animator who has devoted the last thirty years of his life to mastering the skills and techniques of the mosaicist.

Tomorrow evening (Monday), I will be interviewing Martin about his book and his passion for mosaics at The Chelsea Arts Club from 6:30-8:30.
In the meantime, here are a few of Martin's masterpieces...
You can see more marvellous mosaics by visiting the website of Martin Cheek.
