Happy New Year! My writing continues on 'Seth's Rabbits', a victorian horror fantasy, and after meeting some hectic work deadlines I am delighted to be sketching them again. On the left is Faust, a grumpy street urchin, and his closest companion, young Eveline. I've also got some rough sketches coming together of Edmund and Seth himself. Also work has begun on my newest project and I'm so excited to see it all coming together! The animatic is still in progress but is due for upload in early Feb. So watch this space! Here is an early animatic teaser - Have a great evening and keep dreaming big!

After moving house I uncovered so many sketchbooks, and wonderful unfinished sketchbooks. I always come back to art eventually, even if its sometimes years later, and its wonderful to find hidden gems that can be improved with new experiences in line work, painting or proportion. I found a few character designs that had been speed sketched about a year ago and I'm so glad I came back to them. They were part of a conceived tribe of people that were half cat/tiger, which I had seen in a dream. The central leopard, Archer, was rescued by the tigers and struggles to fit in, being much smaller than them (and missing an arm!) but he soon finds his way. It was an exploration of the various characters in the tribe and the subtle differences that differentiate them.

After moving in with my partner, he coaxed me into drawing little mini adventures that we have together - silly things, like talking about dinner, decorating, and being ourselves in ways that made us have a little chuckle. Of course, this prompted me to draw my entire family like cartoon characters and so far they've loved it! Here is a work in progress of my newest, titled 'moving in' as well as a short story about wasps.
