Blog moved!

I am no longer going to be posting on this blog. Please switch to my website blog here.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Tuesday, 20 September 2016


So I've finally got round to renewing my website! I hope you can take the time to have a look around and let me know what you think. There is a built in blog there so once I'm fully sure about the new blog I will post here to let you know when I will no longer be using this one. In the meantime you can keep checking on my website for updates to my blog there.

Coming along

I'm feeling rather lacklustre at the mo'. Weather is awful and I'm lacking in a real job for the first time in ages! That never bodes well with me-I thrive on having lots of work on and when I don't I feel despondent. I am however trying to develop up some new work. the tourists are coming along very slowly. I'm sure if a bright, shiny, new job comes along it will whip me into shape for finishing this self promo project :0))

With the recent trip to Prague in the fat distant past I have been inspired to do some work based around the trip. Working on little tourists!!

Worked on this little image but I am not finished yet. Quite often I get to a certain stage on a piece then leave it for a while. When I come back to it later, I see things that could improve so we'll see how it goes :0)

For science! WIP

We have an ongoing interest in Prof Cox and science in general here and together with daughter studying mega serious science subjects at uni, it makes for some science related work :0))

I quickly animated this as a test. It's always exciting to see your work animated even if it's only a tiny bit :0) Like magic!!

Wip -under the sea

Working on an underwater scene, it's one of my favourite themes :0)

Jungle book

buzzy bee

Well I'm not quite so busy just now so it's ironic I post a pic of a busy bee :0)
I have been doing an awful lot of waiting on clients over the past few weeks and I am still waiting.
Hoping to receive some new and exciting projects soon!! I like to be a busy bee :0)

doddle day

Been neglectful of my blog! Here are a couple of warm ups I did today. It's important to just do something self indulgent from time to time so I indulged today :0))
I still have real work on too. Books to finish in the next week.
Hope you like the patterns

sketch beaver

I saw a baby beaver on the telly the other night and had to do a quick sketch of one :0))
Still very, very, busy here with work. I am dividing my time between 2 different construction sites, monsters, cats, owls, fast vehicles and a map. Just completed 2 novelty animal books, some posters for a railway station and some preliminary work for inclusion at Bologna Book Fair.
