It’s update time again!

Added several #colour_collectives to the portfolio section – some interesting colours over the last few weeks! Also on Twitter there’s another group illustration topic for the first of every month – this month it was a polar bear.

Busy time at work, but in between job stuff have been working out the story arc for my YA cyborg guinea pig trilogy. The first book is written and I’ll start the second this year. Lots to do!

Finally got around to seeing the Avengers and Mad Max, which were both good to see at the cinema. Two episodes left of Game of Thrones season 5 – look forward to seeing how it turns out.

Well, off for now, but will be updating again soon!

Time for an update again!


Been very busy lately with getting portfolio up to date and continuing with the Twitter weekly Colour Collectives. There are a few new characters which I’d like to get into picture books: the three mice taking a stroll through the forest with firefly light to guide them, and Squirrel & Bear. More than anything, Squirrel wants to be a Flying Squirrel and his best friend Bear will do anything he can to get him into the air.

Also busy getting Sally marketing promo stuff together – it’s almost all together now.

This week I’ve been redrafting my cyborg guinea pig YA sci-fi/horror and am getting that to a stage to approach agents and publishers. Got to get the story of Jupiter the bionic guinea pig onto the shelf!

Big Summer movies are just around the corner and just started Game of Thrones again.

Will update again soon!

Last three weeks I’ve been mainly focusing on building up my portfolio and concentrating on the weekly Colour Collective illustration event on Twitter – always a fun and inspiring way to spend a Friday night! It’s a really good way to see the talent of others and a great challenge.

Aside from that, been busy editing and implementing changes to my YA Fantasy/Horror Deathcat Sally. Been designing and ordering banner stands and display boards for promotion/marketing, and also designing postcards and bookmarks. Doing research into book fairs and conventions where stalls can be set up to sell books. Lots to do!

Job in video games is very busy at the moment, just passed an Alpha deadline. Beta next – game should be done by Summer.

Other than that, watched Star Wars Rebels (pretty good) and trying to get up to date before Episode VII is released – only 287 days to go 🙂

Right, back to illustrating! Will post more updates soon (promise!).

New Year post

Weekly blog time!


Hope everyone had a great New Year. 2015 is here!

This week I’ve been uploading a few more comet illustrations to Twitter. Also being doing some more Deathcat Sally promo art too which you can see in the My Work section. Did another two cats in the snow illustration, which could turn into a series following their winter adventures.

Also had the first #Colour_Collective illustration even on Twitter. There is a different colour every week and illustrators can submit any theme with that colour being the most prominent. It was great to see the work of others and if you’d like to join in, I’d encourage it!

Just finished an illustration uploaded to Twitter called ‘Waiting for Spring’. After the snow and ice, it seems a way off, but it’ll soon come around 🙂

Back to work on Monday, but keep following on Twitter and checking back on this site for updates!
