To the little guy shopping with his parents in the store where I work today: Please don’t listen to the gender-stereotypical rubbish your parents were spouting at you. You are allowed to like whatever the hell you want to. Don’t let this ridiculous society mould you into yet another example of what a boy ‘should be’. You are an individual, a fresh wealth of inspiration, imagination, ideas and the power to change the world! Don’t ever let yourself be restricted by ideals, be yourself, absorb experiences and be amazing.
I have a new lair… without internet as yet so apologies in advance for the lack of drawing over the next couple of weeks!
It’s the weekend of the annual Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival in Leeds! I only found out about it last year but couldn’t make it so I’m mega-excited to be visiting it this year. I’ve never been to Leeds either so this should be interesting! I’ve remembered a map at least… In the meantime, I depart here for a few days with a wingfish…
An Italian Rammstein website has just used my ‘Laichzeit’ typography picture as the image for its’ lyrics page! That’s amazing!
Yes!!! I’ve just been asked to illustrate a cover for a new book by Mother’s Milk Books. It’s going to be science fiction book for children looking at dramatic environmental changes on a distant planet. Oh, and it has some weird fish in it…
Not done one of these in a while, it ended too soon as well – I was enjoying it. Thanks to Derwent for making such incredible pastel pencils!
Okamiden… because Okami wasn’t cute enough already!
A look back on this year’s INKtober illustrations… What am I going to do with all of this extra time?!
