Two days ago I was afraid my reflection would move on its own.
Yesterday I was afraid my reflection would not be me.
Today I am afraid there will be something behind me.
Patience encounters the thing I fear most about mirrors - the possibility of seeing something behind me that wasn't there before. As a special treat, a shrouded figure is also one of the things I fear most in general. I am terrified that one night I'll wake up and see one standing at the foot of my bed.

Today Patience illustrates the second-biggest reason I'm afraid of mirrors. Tomorrow, the thing I fear most in any reflective surface!
Yesterday I was afraid my reflection would move on its own.
Today, I am afraid my reflection will be someone else.
Ironically, I blanked on monster design, so that is basically me Patience is seeing in the window.

Lots of my friends already know I have a terrible fear of mirrors. Hallowe'en is one of my favourite festivals, so to celebrate this Hallowe'en my lovely assistant Patience is starring in 3 illustrations showing the things I fear will happen every single time I look in any vaguely reflective surface.
Today, I am afraid my reflection will move on its own.

I swear I have been doing something these past few weeks!
It's all very exciting, the Inspired crew have finished our new anthology, Science Fiction Octuple Feature, (which Sammy is taking to various comic shops and will also be available at Thought Bubble this November) and within a week of finishing my comic for that I got two very interesting commissions from people I don't know personally (and one from my Mum, which doesn't really count). The downside is that with all this group work and paid work, I've not got much that I'm at liberty to post online until later this year.
To prevent my blog being totally dormant, here are a couple of pages I doodled up during church. I wouldn't feel right doing paid work in church, so it's the only time I've been free to draw whatever I feel like.
Even if it sometimes turns out a bit weird because I forgot to bring a pencil and had to do it in gel pen.
I hope I'll be able to show you some of the paid work soon, it's very exciting for me to be getting work from strangers for the first time, instead of from friends or family members. (Or more often, friends of family members.)
