Under the Sea

A sudden compulsion to draw an underwater scene has conjured this piece into life. I may add a few more little details here and there at a later stage.

A new page for 'Sleepy Stanley'

Stanley the cat likes to sit in the sun and clean his paws. He likes it when he has his tummy rubbed and it makes him purr. He likes it when his food bowl is filled with tasty dinner. But what Stanley likes to do most of all is to sleep.

Stanley will fall asleep just about anywhere.

Illustration Friday - 'Strings'

Finally a submission for Illustration Friday. Okay so this is my first entry for almost two years but I always check out the other entries. I've been there in spirit!

This week the topic was 'strings' and I thought I'd enter an image of an imaginary band line-up including various stringed instruments. They may be imaginary but you can tell they'd be good!

The House of Illustration Competition

The House of Illustration is a new museum dedicated to, well, illustration obviously! They're running a competition based on a Victorian Parlour game where the players sketch out eight of their favourite things from a list. This image is from an overall piece in progress and it depicts my favourite book (Pride & Prejudice).

I haven't posted much recently due to a large volume of work, most of which I can't yet put up as it hasn't reached the printing you'll just have to believe me- I've been busy!
