Halloween greetings!

Halloween is nearly upon us!, not that I am doing anything special. This is about the extent of my Halloween celebrations- a new design!
Of course we will get a real pumpkin and deliberate over what to carve into it. I do like a Halloween pumpkin :0))
Hope everyone enjoys a very spooky time! :-o

Wednesday, 16 September 2015

Earlier this week I got the unfortunate news that a job I had the green light for was cut :0(
I had 3 titles to work on but it's now down to only one.
I had some spare time so had started working up one of the illustrations and here is a little sneak peek at it.
I've heard no more about the remaining title so far but I hope to soon.
I have another 2 book projects I'm working on that have been ongoing for a little while now but hoping to get them all wrapped up very soon.
I also have a project which is a cover for a publishers for their Frankfurt fair catalogue and some possible sticker work from Italy!

Creativity- where are you?!

I'm in a bit of a creative rut right now :0((
Lack of work quite often leads me to be despondent about my work in general.
It's a nasty thing!
When I have lots of work on I am infinitely more creative.
Although I've been doing a little bit of sketching I've not really thought clearly about giving myself a project to work on.
The weather is also not helping me...I find wet, cold weather extremely depressing.
So I am going to try and think about a new project tomorrow!
Creative rut be gone!

Past project

This was going to be a part of my website design a number of years ago now. I still like the overall effect of it although it's wasn't quite right for my purposes at the time.
