I have spent today, drawing my pet cats with the aim of making them into a little booklet. This is for a short course in children’s book illustration I am currently doing, and the pictures above are of the first mock-up. Unfortunately the card I used wasn’t A3 so a lot of the print got cut off. Apart from that it is a good illustration of what the final piece is going to look like. I still have another brief to complete for the course before I go back on the 6th, as well as other paid projects to do. To say I am a little stressed, is putting it mildly, but I am enjoying everything I do at the moment 😀

Sometimes, I forget about my Envelop shop, and it is always a nice surprise when I go and check it to find I have made sales since the last time I looked. To keep it fresh, and to encourage some more buyers, I updated the shop with some new designs, including Buttercups, Murder Of Crows and Red Kite. You can take a look at the items available HERE!

Earlier this year I decided to submit my work for the new issue of Ballad Of Magazine. The theme was Pet My Ballad, and I decided to draw these totem like dogs. It’s been a real struggle to keep it all secret, as we haven’t been allowed to show the work until we knew either way if we successful or not. I am happy to say, these three have made it into the magazine! I pre-ordered my copy of the Ballad Of…Lola-Bacon, and you can buy yours HERE too. I am now eagerly awaiting the launch party of the magazine!
