I am still alive and sketching and doing other living things.

This is the longest I have ever gone without a blog post of some sort, I think.

A few reasons for that, 1) I am just finishing up the book I have been illustrating. It’s called ‘The Magic Marble’, and is written by Yasmin Naficy. Over 15 full page illustrations plus cover plus other bits and pieces, so that has kept me pretty busy, 2) I’m having a bit of fun working on an incredible little project with writer Justin Cheek. He has a number of (yet) unpublished poems that are just BRILLIANT and he’s letting me have a crack at drawing pictures for them, I feel very lucky indeed, and 3) School holidays. No free time for me!

At the moment.

It has also occurred to me that I haven’t told you my amazing news.
I have an agent!!
I have signed with The Bright Agency in London and it’s ridiculously exciting!

I saw this little blurb on Brights blog today about their new illustrators…there’s a bit about me being launched in Frankfurt  🙂 If you’d like to read it, here’s a link.

So, it’s been a busy few weeks.

I still have time to sketch though. There’s always time to sketch.
I have added a ‘Sketchbook’ page to this blog too, now, mostly because I do so much of it.

Mostly at night while watching TV.

Or mostly in the morning while eating breakfast.

Sketchbook, last night…

I think I really want to colour her.

Until next time… (that’s what it says).
