Sketchbook Sketches (to distract you from the lack of evidence of finished pieces...)

WHHHOOAAA...January's almost over, this year is going a tad fast, I do declare.
It is a typically gloomy, miserable winter where I am, but you know what, I've come to love it. That was, infact, a complete lie.
But to distract me from those winter blues, I have been hard at work, but I still worry that I can't really show much stuff at the moment (I'm never sure of the legality of things like showing development work before the book is released, or whether I should keep the work secret for a bit maximise the tantilising-ness of the book...although who I'm tantilising other than myself, I do not know.), so in another stealthy move to keep this blog regular other than its favourite bran flakes, I'm going to upload things from my sketch book to give you wonderful people who do look at my blog something to look at.

New Year!

Oh, damn, I think I'm rather late...HAPPY NEW YEAR!

There it is, and may it be a wonderful year indeed. I feel like I've been drowning in a whole load of Christmassy and New Year-y jovality, but have finally re-surfaced and really need to crack on with the illustration. THE TIME HAS COME.

Unfortunately I have mostly been inking since returning from the festive weeks, and doing a bit of concept doodles for my up-coming children's books, so I haven't got much to show! Rubbish start to the year. eh? But if it's any consolation, I have a callus forming on my drawing finger from drawing so much recently, and I also have some photos (taken by Soupa extordinaire Jo Spencer) from the recent SoupaMarket I took part in with the wonderful Soupa Network, which was a huge success!

The photos show a few of my products, my mini comics which seemed to go down a storm (stop it, you're making me blush) and some of my prints. There is also a photo of the stall itself, and Soupa members Jo, Carina and myself. The whole stall looked awesome, crammed full of top quality stuff, it was a real pleasure to be a part of it! And on that note, I shall try my hardest to get something concrete onto this blog asap!
