Thanks Kendra and Cody for an awesome day at Science World! The staff had never seen someone scrutinise the human arm for so long. At one point we were standing around this poor woman, everyone with their sleeves rolled up, trying to match muscles with a real disembodied human arm. I have so little pigment in my skin, I may as well have been an exhibit.

My first published book is available now on iBooks!
This all started when I tweeted someone called Crystal Mahey Morgan after she just killed it on Front Row, which is a British arts discussion show on the radio.
Crystal replied! And even better, hinted there might be something for an animator further down the road. Later, this led to an offer to make an animation for one of her companies flagship products, an ebook featuring music and animation called Don't Be Alien.
It's been a huge pleasure to work on this. Throughout the whole process a great deal of trust and respect has flowed both ways, and I hope I can work with everyone on the team again soon.

I'm back from my longest gap away in a long time. I'm currently working on an animated book called Don't Be Alien, and I'll be posting about that in the next month or two. Also, it feels really good to draw something that makes no sense for no reason:

I was invited to "squeeze in at the back" at a local animation school's life drawing class. Not only did they offer me a sketchbook and crayon, but I got some serious attention and advice throughout. Feeling too grateful for words.

It's Sage! I've been working on stuff for my portfolio, and I thought I'd finally use my ever present art victim. I also grabbed the chance to practice using masks, which have made using textured brushes much more satisfying.

This is a portrait drawn from life of Sanba, our transport from our time on Jeju. I started with a rough sketch, then finished with a mechanical pencil and coloured in photoshop. We explored the whole island on her in every kind of weather imaginable. We miss you old girl!

This is my first try at making something in TVPaint. It was incredibly fun to use! This is Gillian, the main character of my series Far From Home. A scene from the first episode is in my showreel at - https://vimeo.com/115784019

i) Faces from the coffee shop in the Horse Museum. A welcome relief from the heat and lack of indoor toilets. ii) On the first day a peace shrine was erected. The yellow ribbons may represent the Sewol disaster. iii) The cairn. Horse related sculptures are scattered all around the park, although most seem to congregate around landmarks. People mostly slept on the benches.

-View from an alleyway in Insadong-
-Insadong street signs-
-Visitors to the Palace District-
Returned from a very quick final tour of Seoul. We packed in fireworks and palaces, and met two friends whom we've been missing for a long time. The sun was low and dazzling, and the streets were like swollen rivers full of people. I sat in a shadow from a sign to draw and had to move from time to time as it slid away from me. Seoul doesn't smell that great at this time of year, but the company was excellent.

I started a thing! The next week will be important, as I was directly paying the model this time. I wonder if people will still come if they have to chip in a bit. Let's find out! The model is the amazing Daniella LaBosseire.
