Confetti


Hello and a welcome to some new followers.

I've been pretty busy as of late. I've just completed a full colour draft commission for an educational publisher - it's for a year 7 english textbook! How exciting, another goal to tick off. I'll wait a little longer before I show you what it looks like- it's SUPER colourful and dreamy.

I've been trying to draw everyday but last Friday we had a work bowling session - come evening my wrist and forearm were aching! Argh, I really have to be more careful with my right arm from now on...without it I wouldn't be able to draw, I guess I could use my left hand but it would look horrific. Maybe I should look into insuring it just like J-Lo and her butt or Mariah Carey and her vocal chords.

Above is a drawing I drew tonight - it's inspired by Gary Pepper Vintage - this has been an on going collaboration for the past few months. I've really enjoyed illustrating for GPV and today they celebrate 6 months of its existence. It's barely a crawling baby yet GPV has achieved so much in such a short amount of time.

In other news - I've been listening to an old favourite - french chic Novelle Vague - an acoustic live version and CD version - I like both:
