Back again!

Yes, back again already. Why??? ...you ask. Well, the last time I was here I thought I saw some cake. Ummmm... can't see it. Oh well.
There are a few more bits on my site so take a look. I won't tell you what or where. You will have to find them. On your own. I want no tears if you find it difficult.

I dun sum pictures and sum words

As I listen to the noise of a light November shower attempting to smash the roof tiles on my house, my summer tan of a cyan hue dissolves back to semi-transparent.I'm sure you would like photographs but I shun this media for the imposter that it is. Why take a photo when you can draw it? Photography may be quicker and easier but...   ...    ..anyway. I have recently updated my website so pokey pokey here to have a look. There is the odd new piece in there and there will be more soon.
As the title suggests, I have done some pictures and some words. This translated roughly means that I am working on my first author illustrated picture book that will be published with Parragon. I'm probably supposed to keep the details secret but I'll mention this much; its a book and it will definitely... definitely have pictures in it... oh, and words... on pages and probably even a cover. There, that's let the rather desperate kitty out of an ever-so flimsy bag. Have fun.

Gnome the third

Meet the gnome again but now in colour. No background yet though, but you know what they say; wait for a bloomin' age and then 3 come along, cor blimey! Pretty stupid thing to say really, especially if they are talking about backgrounds. Who are these people anyway? They ought to stop making their pessimistic vernacular predictions in other peoples blogs and keep them where they belong, as comment on public transport.

Working Knights

Character concept for a clumsy knight. Which is the chosen one? Only the client can tell me... or not tell me because he wants me to stop drawing knights and go away. No, no, he definately wanted me to draw knights. I'm working too hard!

daydreaming

This was an easy one to draw. I just had to remember how it used to be at school. Oh, and remember the out of body experiences that I obviously had to be able to see myself from this point of view. I had many out of body experiences at school! That's why I draw instead of being the PM. Yes... that would have happened.

Gnome drawing - bit the second

Gnomey has been adjusted, but what about the background? Will this furry faced little fellow ever know colour?

Angry Irish


Should you find yourself suddenly feeling rather gaelic and wishing that you could take part in some Irish themed action, lets say, in the style of Angry Birds then look no further than this cute little norse bashing app for all lovers of St. Pat. It isn't available yet but I thought it might be nice to to show some of the characters in a less pixelated form. So...point your little pinky here...here... here and here. Enough now, back to work...well, maybe a cuppa first.
