Well, I have been remiss, haven't I ??

In my defence, I have been busy. So busy I'm afraid, that I have negligent to my website ( and this blog ) and also in doing much new work.

Since I last posted here ( way back in April, Ugh ! ) some things have occurred.

In June I di...

Hasn't it ?

Yes, I've been remiss. Lots of things have been pulling me in various directions.

Not all good, to be honest. But some good. 

So, here I am again, catching up like a frantic beast.

Since I last posted, pretty much the single biggest constant has been Brexit.

I h...

The Christmas / New Year hibernation is done. I have emerged from my metaphorical cave, raring to go. Here's hoping 2019 is an exciting, rewarding, and altogether positive experience for us all.

The end of the year was interesting - it was great to be at the 'Santa's Li...

Have updated the shop to include some new items - a couple of new Genesis-inspired illustrations, and an A2 dinosaur poster - great for fans of prehistoric beasties, and let's face it, who isn't a fan of those prehistoric beasties ??

Growing up, my faves were 'Dimetrodo...

It's been a while. Things have been happening since I last posted.

The crazy summer is but a distant memory, and now thinking up Christmas stuff seems much more apt.

I'm eagerly awaiting the delivery of my new pin-badge designs ( more on them soon ), and tomorrow I am he...

It's been about a billion degrees outside for what has felt like a hundred years.

Which makes designing and drawing Christmas stuff all the more weird.

Almost as weird as walking around Florida at Christmas-time, the sun blazing down from an unbroken blue sky, surrounded...

Last Saturday / Sunday ( 30th / 1st ) was the Summer Makers' Market @ FarGo Village, Coventry. My 1st ever craft show. It was an experience - a learning experience for sure. All the 'great' ideas I had about how to present my stand ... well most of them went out the me...

It’s the motto of the Boy Scouts ( I think ?! ). And it seems appropriate, given the amount of prep work I am currently doing.

I have 4 all-new Genesis illustrations, and I guarantee they are not what you will be expecting.

More on those a little later ( patience, my you...

It's been a long, long time since my last entry.

Apparently it is true that time flies when you're having fun.

Though where it flies to is, so far as I know, not specified anywhere. 

Somewhere nice, I hope. 

The past month HAS been fun. 

This time last week I was at an arti...

March 28, 2018

I'm in the lull that resides between the end of one project, and the start of the next. There's usually a sense of loss, a feeling of emptiness. Time that I would normally spend drawing, or imagining up ideas, is now not spent doing those things. I don't like to do not...
