new work + website!



A little snippet of the project I'm currently working on for my MA. The whole story involves surprisingly fewer aliens than this picture suggests, but if it's any consolation, there are also dinosaurs, bears, and a giant squid.

You can see more from this project, as well as some older comics and other pictures, on my shiny new portfolio website!

October/November is not the ideal time to embark on six weeks solid of observational sketching. At least people in winter weather gear make for fun subjects, and I am now very familiar with all of the coffee shops in Cambridge, especially those with a good window view. (And thanks, Cornish Pasty Shop, for that free hot chocolate!)

So, to continue the update- 

After a long summer spent recovering from finals and embarking on a bit of a baking frenzy, I decided to have a go at trying this whole art thing full time! Last September I started a Masters in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art, and so far it's been great. The first part of the course was based around observational drawing, so that's probably a lot of what you'll see here on the blog for a little while.
