It has been ages since I have had a chance to do any illustrations, let alone a blog!
Ok so I have been working a a major project, not arty, but hopefully a good one for my son. Hoping to open a shop for him to run by the end of Feb, he is a qualified butcher (and chef) so will be running a good old fashioned shop in a nearby village. I have been working on coordinating builders etc, painting it and planning fittings and displays, which has been fun. Just finished the logo designs for the windows ready for the sign maker. But the chilly winter is tempting me to sit by the fire and work on an illustration for a logo for a friend, who is the most amazing photographer. Will be good to draw, it has been a while!

Looking forward to getting back into my work, I have so much planned for this year, so many ideas rattling around my head but so far I'm not getting time to achieve those goals, still once the next few weeks are done and the shop is open, I can throw myself back into it, hopefully by then we may have a bit of sunshine to lift the spirits!

Needless to say I will have a sketchbook and pencil under the shop counter just in case I get time for a few ideas!

Anyway, I know it's a bit late, but Happy New Year to you all and hope it is a happy, healthy and prosperous one.

It may be cold, but it can also be very pretty!
