other blogs ...

I've just spent about 15 minutes looking around at other artists' and illustrators' blogs, and it's amazing what's out there ... everyone seems to be at this blogging lark. It's also making me think that things here in the land of my blog are a little bland, so I'm going to try and come up with some ways to spice it up a little ... any ideas anyone?? ;)

some sketches ...

Just a couple of sketches and doodles I've done over the past couple of days ...


... I doodle when I'm waiting for things to process on the computer ...
Have a good weekend everyone! ;)

I'm still here ...

I've been a little quiet recently - my 9to6 is keeping me very busy - just a quick catch up ... the garden is going well (and looking pretty good if you ask me!) - except for the slugs, snails and greenfly who seem intent on wrecking havoc! I'm sketching as much as I can and the web site is formulated in my mind, but not quite on screen yet ;) I'll get there - I promise!

how does my garden grow ...

Last night when I got home I checked on the seeds I'd planted in pots in the garden I was pleased to see that some of all the different types have started to surface - from the corn field mix to the giant sunflowers ... it's sad I know, but I find it exciting to see the little plants poking through the soil ... fingers crossed they'll all grow and grow ... ;)

under the sea



my first attempt for "illustration friday" - not my usual style, but I thought I'd post it ...
