the face of judgement...
...it took a while but i feel i am back in the world of illustration. my plate is quite full at the moment. stress is not good and so i have cut the things on my plate into little pieces for the time being. seems to be working though i shouldn't speak to soon. some things have been sorted out and others haven't. anyway moving on to what this blog is about - so here we have a stitched collage of a robotington of which i am trying to write a story about. initial ideas are that he loves stamps and or would like to be a green grocer or something. another idea i have is that he has a fear of water and likes to watch telly until one day he discovers that water is fun and he can always wear wellies and carry an umbrella. he may also think he is allergic to water as he may rust but actually isn't and discovers the true potential of water! i haven't got a clue but my ideas have been running wild with this story over the past week. i have been making up dummy books so hopefully a story will take shape soon.
any ideas please feel free to add a comment!

Oh this is lovely Deb, the detail in the stitching with the newsprint and netting texture looks really good. I really like your work!
Had a look at your etsy shop and see you've sold more - well done!
P.x

Fantastic :D
I especially like the water idea - its logical and its good for kids to learn from. A robot in a yellow raincoat, wellies and a brolly would be great to illustrate! Maybe there'sa reason he needs to go out in the rain or something?

Hey Deb this looks great, he's so cute! I'm glad you've got some things sorted out. Don't stress out though, that's rule number 1. The crit was fine on Tuesday, they just said I needed more work which I have got in secret, I just didn't show them. They think I have one image. They liked my work though which is good.

Anyway about the story, what if he really likes water but was afraid of it because he's scared of rust. Maybe all the other robots warned him about it, and when it rains they all run and hide, but in the end he finds out that if he wears wellies, a mac and has an umbrella he will be all fine and can play all he wants to. It's just an idea. Hope it's going well. X
