D & A D 'new blood' and Wimbledon...

...a couple of photographs from last week when a group of us illustrators from UCLAN went to London to show our work. mr robotington came along as well as he had never been away on holiday before. i told him it wasn't technically a holiday and that if he came he would have to do some work. he agreed and sat at out stand most of the time. he said he had a good time but is now very tired and would like another holiday in the sun sometime soon.



London lions...

...these lions seem to be turning more into a visual diary of what i see while out and about. the odd pirate lion appears every now and then but its sad to say that i have not seen an actual pirate yet. the middle lion in the middle doodle is me eating at an indian restaurant on earls court road. there were about ten different things on my plate and it was so nice. a visit to Wimbledon on the first day was great. i loved it and it provided me with many people to draw and things to look at but the sun was too shiny and so i had a big rest taking in the view while sat on henman hill. the last doodle is from the train back and i finally got out the pack of felt-tips that i had been carrying around with me for a month and never dared to use! my studio is very messy and i am hoping to list things on etsy this evening if i can get some good photos of my work.
where have i been...

...well last Sunday, i travelled down to London town on the train with my fellow illustrators. pictured above are my train journey doodles of lions. i still am not too keen on them wearing spectacles but i can draw them wearing sunglasses. there is loads to show and tell about London but i will do it in stages as i am very busy at the moment with starting my illustration career now i have left university. i added various illustration and craft ideas to the to-do list whilst down south. plus i am going to have a proper go at etsy selling now i am more free to do so. it is all about focus and commitment and happiness.
