Why I love Myriad Editions

First-Fictions---Short-StoryPOST

Last weekend was awesome. Got my mind blown listening to a bunch of fascinating and talented writers. Here are some sketches I did while they spoke. As one friend on twitter pointed out, I should be glad that the Crime ladies were kind about the drawings I did because they know how to kill people [...]

Sabbatical Under Way…

Here we go...

After a whirlwind couple of weeks getting everything in order at the day job and handing over, I’m off on my time off. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks sorting everything in my life out that can have an impact on my work for the next three months. That has included the obvious like [...]

2014: Here we go…

Aneurin Wright Arts Council Funded

Gertrude and George has been woefully underserved for nearly the last year. But not for a lack of things going on in life. Gertrude has been blazing her way back into graphic designer glory and searching for that balance between work and motherhood. I’ve been blogging, just not here. Since November 2012, I’ve been doing [...]

February Update

Sprout's Book Club Week 1

In spite of the desert of posts here, there’s been a lot going on lately. First, a former day job colleague of mine has been working for Waterstones in their marketing department. He’s in charge of the blog for the renowned British Book Retailer’s website. Back in November, he got in contact after he saw [...]

I gift you… a beer label.

It has been quite a while since my last post. As Nye has no doubt mentioned, we had a wonderful addition to our family arrive last June. Having a baby on hand is the most incredible fun, but my lordie, do they keep one’s hands full! My energy has been spent far more on figuring out creative ways to get more sleep than creating logo designs.
But there’s always an exception, and Nye’s birthday was it…

November/December News

The year is winding down, but some fun things are starting to gear up. First: final Comics Shows this year. There were two fun comics shows at the end of November: Comica Festival’s Autumn Comiket. It’s a one day festival held in the great hall of the Bishopsgate Institute. It’s a great mix of old [...]

Getting the Tables Turned…

Jennifer-Homans

Not a lot to time to write this week as the day job has been absolutely mental. But I’ve been meaning to post about an odd feeling. I love sketching people. I love watching them while they don’t know their being watched and trying to capture the things about them that make them uniquely THEM. [...]

Florida, Idaho and Scotland…

Hendrickson's book "Hemingway's Boat" is a different view of Papa

I think I can pretty much guarantee those three destinations have never followed upon one another the way that they did for us during this trip back. It was fun and crazy, and not likely to be repeated. I’ve recounted the Idaho part of the literary half of the trip, this week: a rundown on [...]

Doodlings

Consciousness Sketch 01

A proper recap of the con season is still to come; it’s been a busy couple of weeks out in the world with the book. But the day job awaits. So instead, I’m putting up a couple of recent doodles. The first is from last night’s Cartoon County meeting where Hannah Berry spoke about her [...]

Trailer Park and Gob-Smacking Merchandising

Shocked Sister in Law!

Last weekend was significant for two reasons: Comica’s Comiket was the first comic convention of the summer season (makes it sound like Royal Ascot when you say it like that…). But it was also my first outing at a show with “…Trailer Park…” out in the world and ready to be purchased. Felt pretty good. [...]
