Time seems to be going so fast right now, I've barely has chance to catch up with everything. I'm working on my new goat-related book, and have just finished designing the main character, and I must say he's looking rather awesome.Can not wait to colour it! In the meantime, I've been doodling out some other ideas, including MOONBUNNIES!! There's a lot that needs altering with the piece, like the characters re-drawing better; but I'm hoping in my spare time to put together a few DPS's. So expect more rabbity-goodness in the future.
But don't worry, I haven't completely changed styles! The all-digital style is certainly still around...

I've started work on my next picture book, and all is going well so far- I don't want to say much about it...but expect more goats! It's due to be published later this year, so more news on that in a few months time. In the meantime I'll be updating here with doodles (like Mr. Mole) every other day or so. And hopefully working on a few samples. And cards.

I've been meaning to update my blog for ages, but I've been very busy. Currently working my way through as many new samples for my portfolio as possible; whilst trying to speed up. I know at Uni a final piece took me around 2 weeks-but this piece took me 2 days. So I'm certainly getting better. A lot of my scenes are super busy, so here's a more simple one based on the classic tale of The Little Red Hen.

I used the flowers from last experiment, along with many others to create a new experimental piece. I've had this piece done for a while, and has been sat on my desktop waiting to be uploaded. It's growing on me...slowly.
I've also been working on new ideas for my 'sketchy style' but colouring proved trickier than expected. I really need to get going on some new samples for my portfolio; so hopefully I'll be able to sketch a few out tomorrow. I'm currently working on a commission involving bears; but more news on that when it's completed...

After realizing that I always draw fluffy and fuzzy characters, I decided to draw a frog. I almost put a tail on him, because I'm so used to my characters having them! (I think frogs would look better with tails). As tomorrow is International Book Giving Day I thought I'd draw him reading,with his gifted books next to him. Next post will (hopefully) be an update on 'The Wolf and the Seven Kids', and other stuff I've been working on.
Someone commission me to draw more frogs please?!
