I drew this yesterday when I met up with Derek my old tutor yesterday, hes still being quite supportive of me and encouraging me to do well in my career.
No idea why I drew it but the conversation with Derek did eventually involve some sort of fish he saw on one of his holidays so I tried imagining what it looked like.
I have also been trying to upload a lot more images to my website- its been having a few major updates lately (thanks to abstractiondesign) and I'm feeling pretty satisfied with it at the moment. Please check it out:

Thanks Fig~

Its been another week of positive feedback- especially when Fig Taylor says she wants you to succeed and wants you to be the next Shaun Tan- funny that shes should mention his name since I wrote my dissertation on his work at Solent. Anyway, I've hopefully made a good friend and a good ally!

Christmas Cards

I've tried making some christmas cards this year. There are 25 cards for each design all in plastic sleeves and with an envelope. (I found a good printer/gallery in Byfleet.) I was hoping to charge roughly about £1.50 for each one.

The little design on the back of each card.

The card quality isn't too bad. Theres no printed text inside any of the cards, its just all blank.

Anybody interested? I don't think I'll make much of a major profit but it would be interesting to see if anybody found these designs appealing for a christmas card. Maybe young children could colour them in for fun?

Todays Update

Things feel a little bit difficult at the moment, although, it also feels slightly positive. Its not unbearable being at home, I have a few small comissions and my own personal projects to be working on and I've had plenty of interest and amazing feedback from some pretty well respected companies and agencies- I'm still managing to make at least a few small drawings a day (I've just been a bit lazy scanning them all.)

I'm looking forward to seeing how some of my christmas cards I made will turn out later this week!
