what's been keeping me up at night

This is the first page of the comic. Not totally sure about the colours... but the first two panels worked out better than I could have hoped.

sketchbook flickback

I just rediscovered this lion in an old sketchbook. He is suffering from a common dissatisfaction: getting home, he finds that the shoes he just bought are not really quite what he wanted.

I'm making a comic... and I'm trying this time to give different ways of colouring and drawing a go. Even if I just go back to pencil again in the end. hum.

potato prints

My first ever screenprint! Done with basement-style home-assembly kit, so enthusiastically demonstrated by Pam Smy last term. Thankyou! (Alexis did a couple of the potatoes - guess which..)

These are possible characters from a story i have vaguely in mind about a great potato escape. More anon. maybe.

I'm starting to make some sketches in a research-y kind of way, for illustrations to Paul Gallico's 'the Love of Seven Dolls'. Which means more scenery and bits around the edges than I'm at all used to

Mother Dutton's hedgepig.
More familiars:
"Joan Willimott called two spirits, one in the likeness of a kitten, and the other of a moldiwarp [a mole]: the first... was called Pusse, and Hisse, and they presently came to her, and she departing and they leapt upon her shoulder, and the kitten sucked under her right ear on her neck, and the mole on the left side in the like place."
