I'm on a roll...

...despite the fact that it is Sunday and I should be taking a break. Funnily enough I don't seem to be able to do any of my more pressing work, just doodling these odds and ends instead. But hey- its the weekend!

The perils of facial hair...

I wonder how they worked that one out? Did they just have a one-off charge or was it staggered according to bushiness and length? Another fascinating fact from Vicki...

Glove Thief

I was reading about this one year old cat in the U.S. that has brought home 9 pairs of gloves and five singles in the last seven weeks. His owners have created a little stall outside their front gate asking people to take back any gloves that they recognise and apologising for their wayward kitty's behaviour!

On another note, I've started experimenting with creating my own patterns and placing them in my images. It started with polka dots and now I've recreated the rose pattern on the pair of garden gloves in the image above. It seems to be working and in keeping with my use of flat, bold colours.

A classroom scene

Another image for the folks at Storlann. Their site is coming along nicely and I'm pretty happy with the designer's treatment of my work. He has animated bits of it and added sound effects! I'll publish a link once it is up and running. Talking of websites, I've just finished work on my brand spanking new site and will be launching it this evening. Feedback and constructive criticism gratefully received...

A musing moment

As you may or may not know by now, I have recently become responsible for a rather loud, utterly gorgeous siamese cat called Morrisey (AKA the Schnarf). His dinner of choice is Kitekat's Chicken with Gravy and this set me off thinking about how you'd actually pronouce the brand.

Also worthy of note- last week we found a congealed screw in his dish and I wrote a bitchy letter to those people at Masterfoods...

Images from Dae Ye Ken?

Work on my book, due to be published this year, is now in full swing. Thought I'd let everyone take a quick look at some of the images I've been working on today.

A sneak preview of a current project

These images are for the Storlann website I am currently involved with. They were coloured using Illustrator and are intended to entertain children and parents (quite a wide market!).
