I heard about this through Jon Davis, so to spread the word, here's some info...

PLR (public lending rights) allows an author/illustrator a small earning from each lending of their work from a public library (6p per lend). The government want to drastically cut this funding.

There are but a few JKRowling's, Stephanie Meyer's, and Quentin Blakes. Many of us, if not most of us struggle to make ends meet and every penny makes a difference. Please, please show your support of PLR funding by signing this petition.
Black and white

I would like to branch into black and white pen line drawings for young fiction 7 - 9 year olds. Sooo, I need to work on that portfolio.. here are some trials!

I was trying to think of what to draw/what the characters should be doing, and my friend suggested drawing a diary of what I do each day (this does mean I have to do something interesting every day now!) But here are the first pages of the diary..

Picking apples in our local woods

And making blackberry and apple jam!
