On The Drawing Board…

Back into the fantasy stuff again. I’m currently working on bits and pieces for the new publisher of ‘The Fantasy Artroom’. This is one I worked on but discarded, wasn’t quite what we were after. Still, it has a certain charm…

Sylvia’s Itch and Scribbling Away In The Corner…

Went to the book launch for my latest illustrated book yesterday, entitled ‘Sylvia’s Itch’, about a pair of Australian sugar gliders. Had a great time catching up with and meeting new people…

I painted this canvas whilst I was there. Managed to scratch something coherent out in the time I spent on it… Can’t wait to get on and finish it. (acrylics)

The book (btw) is available from the lovely Robin Adolphs:

New Year, New Start

Happy 2015 everyone. Hope it’s gotten off to a fine start for you all. I’m still trying to find my feet in many ways although overall, it’s been a positive beginning. So no real complaints.

I haven’t posted regularly for a long time, in part due to

a) The kids have been off on school holidays.

b) I’ve been sucked into a facebook void as far as spending time on the internet is concerned. If you’d like to keep track of what I’m up to, there’s the best place to do it, although I thoroughly intend to get back to blogging on here, I miss it.

c) My workload. It quietened down for a few months prior to Christmas and then took off again. I’ll be pretty busy for the next 2-3 months and that’s what an illustrator wants. No complaints. Truly.

So here I am, with 2-3 sketches drawn over the past couple of days. I haven’t sketched for the sheer sake of sketching for quite a while and will be doing that too. 2014 was a tough year  for me, personally, and it upset my mojo somewhat. Things are steadily improving so, with that in mind, hope you enjoy the sketches, plenty more to follow soon…
