A Christmas card!

As I've been so quiet this month I thought you'd like to see something. This is a Christmas card I designed for my Mum to use this year. I doodle angels all the time (especially in church) so I'm most proud of the star in the middle. Mum wanted one that incorporated the Star of David and a seven-point star, and I hardly specialised in geometric design so I'm pretty pleased with how it came out.

I've been soooo busy lately, what with Thought Bubble, making What's the Time, Mrs Woolf?, doing commissions, Sketchavember, applying for a million proper jobs and having horrible colds, so I haven't had much to put online.  Some of the commissions are almost done though, so hopefully I can show you what I've been doing all this time! Rest assured that at the end of this month I can at least show you my Sketchavember pictures, so you can all get acquainted with 30 of my own characters and laugh at how shaky my grasp of anatomy becomes when I draw late at night.

Seriously, it's pretty bad. It's like I forget that shoulders and hips are real body parts.

A Thousand Empty Heavens

I've finished my comic for this year's Inspired anthology, Science Fiction Octuple Feature. I posted a 2-page preview for Disposable People, so I thought I'd do the same again. A Thousand Empty Heavens is a pair of contrasting vignettes, so I've used the first page of each. I'm very pleased with how it turned out, although I did realise I've done a depressing sci-fi story twice in a row for Inspired. I'll have to do something cute and cheerful for the next one.

We're taking this to Thought Bubble, and you can also buy it online HERE.
