I'm a little late on this one, almost missed it. Better late than never though I suppose. I threw out my original idea for 'wings' after I watched this weeks episode of Ripper Street last night. I felt so sorry for poor old Sergeant Drake, he's such a sweetheart. He can do better than a stringy tart like Rose anyway...
If you haven't seen it yet, it's worth watching. A little trashy at times, and I almost refused to watch it after the first episode, when the art department decided that it would be a good idea to use glossy 4 x 6 photos in Victorian London. But it does get better, and historical inaccuracies aside it's a pretty good show. The characters are insanely lovable, particularly this chap who is my favourite. Not surprising really, as Bronn is my fave from Game of Thrones...
a friendly gesture can go a long way on a bad day...
still experimenting with ways to colour my images, i like this one but something gets lost in translation when i redraw my line art in photoshop over top of the pencil...i'll keep trying. you can see the original sketch for this illustration up on the sketches page

This is a page from the book I made for my great grandad when my great nan passed away. It was just a few things about her that we all loved, like how she was always in the kitchen and how she knitted sweaters and cardigans for everyone.
I gave the book to him for christmas and I think he really liked it. nana polly was a swell gal.

This weekend i finally got to spend time with my lovely boyfriend, after not seeing him for about 3 weeks. Despite not having very much to do, the weather being lousy and not having a car, we managed to have a great weekend. My favourite had to be our walk over the hills across the river at twilight, it was beautiful, and a bit of bad weather at this time of year only adds to the experience. it was perfect.
so here's to my man, you sure know how to give a girl a good time... thank you for my book, you're the best :)
i thought about this image for a while, i had quite a few ideas i wanted to try out. my first decision was to draw pete and i beneath an umbrella, after we went out to town in the rain. but the image didn't really flow from me, so i thought about other things. beneath the stars, beneath the trees, beneath the ground...i had a dream that i was queen of an underground settlement hidden from a zombie apocalypse... then this image entered my head out of nowhere, and i thought it'd be quite original.
not sure what she's doing, maybe checking she remembered the garter...
