So today is a catch up day, tax return, admin and hopefully getting started on a new commission, 'Music World' for a friends son for a Christmas pressie. Some great things to include and he lives in Brighton and runs a music shop there so there are some wonderful places to include in that world.

Also I am putting together some scans and a short biography piece as I am going to be 'featured artist' on the SCBWI page from November for 3 months, really hoping it may draw in some interest from publishers. However I am really not sure what to write about myself. Should it be basic info or a bit more of an insight into me, what made me want to be an illustrator, the things that influenced me and things that inspire me? Opinions greatly received!

I also still have Mo and Po knocking around my head and want to get on with these illustrations and do a book mock up, but as usual there is not enough time.

Here are some of the character sketches I have been doing for Po....

And so, back to the drawing board, enjoy your day everyone.

Phewee, the last few days have been just a bit crazy. Had 3 days at work, sorting library books i reckon about 4,000 a day, the book is still well and truly alive! Also been madly busy getting a few more images ready for the big presentation to the client on the 15th. Totally shattered but running on nervous energy, think it may hit me mid week.

Anyway the project is pulling together well, cant show or tell much more than that, but here is a little peek at just one of the little fellas I have been working on....

And so back to work sketching up the next ideas ready to ink tomorrow after sorting yet more library books!
