Some sketches from 'St Nicholas' Market' in Bristol, while waiting for a friend...
I think I'll start turning up early to things just so I can stand and sketch for a while!

I go to a swing dancing night (lindyhop) every week, and decided to take my sketchbook along last week. It was great fun, a good challenge too! Here are a fe wof the results... some people shapes emerging from scribbles...

Took my sketchbook out to a cafe with a friend yesterday too, decided to break out of my pencil comfort zone, and tried using a pen.. some of the results!

Scary Mary is complete! 

 She's a very grumpy hen, prone to throwing a few tantrums...
 But I managed to tame her for just enough time to get the story completed..
 And now I've let her go, she's currently running rampage around the offices of Tiger Tales, near New York...
...I hope they don't mind!

It's been a good fun book to work on with Tiger Tales.

Spring is springing!
Blossom on the damson tree on the corner of my local park, will be picking the fruits in august!

Recently I received my copies of the books I illustrated with John Crawford (Vocal Minority), here they are on a chair in the sunshine:
They are the first 3 stories, printed in a lovely board book style. Currently working on the next 2 stories in the series, I think they look just great!
