Winter wonder…

Today i woke up rather late, which isnt like me, i couldn’t sleep i was thinking a little bit too much about the current children’s book. It is inspired by cornwall.

I have been painting boats and sketching old fishermen. Whilst drinking lots of tea and eating clementines. The snow is now gone and all that is left is wet slush and mud. I am slowly getting there with my book, I have been writing and re-writing all day. I have also gone through an entire sketchbook just to sketch and get the characters right.

Also today i got the good news that my boyfriend has bought a train ticket to come down and see me next weekend it will be a whole seven weeks since i have seen him so i am rather excited. I am hoping to go on a little day trip to oxford for some festive inspiration do a little bit of drawing and to head to the turf Tavern for food and drink 🙂

Talking of festive and winter, The wonderful Illustrator Gemma and i have been in discussion about creating a little festive/winter inspired Zine. So i am rather excited about that. We will hopefully be involving a few of our favorite illustrators so watch this space and check your emails. It will hopefully be for sale once we have created it with badges and what not 🙂
