Here's the sketch I posted a while back, but coloured in... and framed....just doodling about really.

Apologies for the lack of posts....possibly moving house...arranging mortgages and other scarily grown-up stuff...

My dad's been BoingBoing-ed!


Boing Boing: A Directory of Wonderful Things



Andy Titcomb's fanciful ceramic teapots are really clever -- my favorites are this padlock-shaped pot and the cherub.

Wow!

His website has already had nearly 2000 hits today so will probably be closed down soon. If it is, try this link to his blog instead:

Here's a rejected rough for my latest book, I've used it to experiment with some colouring...

This highlights a problem with working digitally...too much choice. Having "finished" this illustration I quickly came up with four other versions of it by tweaking the colours in various areas...

If this was for a book, which would I choose?

Go here for the other four..
