excuse me love...

...where can i find a jar of strawberry jam without bits please? i reckon that is the first ever real book spread that i have done. you can click on it to see it bigger. i must say it was exciting and i was at one with the felt-tips the day i drew this. i think after the big clean, i must have cleaned out the brain of over thinking and must try to stay on this level of thinking. i am having fun and i cant wait to get back to the story. it doesn't have a title yet or any real words. it may stay without words but will feature colour in time. there is no rushing on this but there is a focus of imagination on this one.

...i have been working on a very random, loose story featuring my lion character for about two weeks. i am drawing very roughly in a large square sketchbook that is quite difficult to scan in. to start it off there is lion, riding his bike around town. he sees many things on his travels like the reading bear and has to take shelter in a cafe when it rains. here he is trying to fix a puncture. i drew him on a park bench trying to fix his puncture but it was a very very small drawing. i am not sure what i am doing but i am enjoying drawing things that i cant rub out. next up is trying to decide how many pages and then work properly on some spreads as the ones in my sketchbook are rough rough like sandpaper.
