Exciting happenings...

Hi everyone, 

Just thought I'd share a few exciting things that have been happening recently....

1. The book I am currently working on was chosen to have it's cover blown up and put on the publishers stand at the Frankfurt Bookfair, to say I was ecstatic was an understatement and it gave me the confidence boost I needed to get on with the artwork. The Publisher I am working with is The Five Mile press you can find their website Here.

2. I have been meaning to post these for a little while, the kind people at Abacus cards sent me some samples of my published cards, I was so pleased especially as they are beautifully flittered. You can buy them here. 
Trade customers only though I'm afraid.

3. Our new addition.

We have adopted a doglet called Peanut. He is a 10 month old Saluki who I think is absolutely gorgeous. I've wanted a dog for years and now I work from home we approached our landlords to see if we could and they said yes, HOORAY!
We got him from the wonderful people at Lincolnshire Greyhound Rescue and is one of the best things I have ever done.
If you would like to adopt a sight hound (they are wonderful pets and need a lot less exercise than you might think) then have a look at their website xxx

Little fairy and shrew sketch

Hello! I thought I'd post this fairy and a couple of crops of it, I'm trying to focus on faces at the minute, I want my human/fairy characters to look like I've drawn them and the style consistent, it can be difficult.. I quite liked this one x
