Gareth A Hopkins is surely one of the most committed and original contributors to Amelia's Magazine, producing many illustrations of consistently good quality over the past few years. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and is also notable for providing much hilarity on the good old twittersphere @grthink and indeed in real life. Gareth A Hopkins is profiled in Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration and since the year is now drawing to a close I felt it was high time I caught up with him and found out his highlights of 2011.
