About me

I am an English graduate of Goldsmiths, University of London. Hobbyist writer and artist, I have been particularly active fandom in the past although not any more. My spare time involves writing, drawing, watching, reading and playing Pokemon. I also collect the cards as well as play the games.

I have been working a lot lately so I haven't had a lot of time for drawing, tragically. For those of you who don't know - I am actually a lingerie fitting consultant but I have a lot of stock room and CS responsibilities as well at work, plus with summer here we have been VERY busy. So I am more or less working full-time at the moment and only get art done on weekends (and evenings if I am in the mood). So that is why content or general presence on this website has been a little lacking lately.

Thankfully I do have some pencil drawings that I want to colour, clean up and share but I probably won't have anything for another week or so. I might have some time on my day off (Thursday) to do some colouring but I can't make promises right now.

Still haven't got enough money for a tablet but I'll get there eventually. Possibly in August's paycheck. We'll see. There is some other stuff I want to buy too so I'm going to have to priorities. Not least because I feel that my current method of creating art has been working decently well for me.

In the mean time I have been drawing up Issue #11 to Scarlett's Run:

This hasn't been coloured or edited at all yet as I am still putting together the final couple of panels for this set. Rather than doing one big update, I'm probably going to do it in little sections as I suggested I would before. The next couple of "events" do have natural cliffhanger moments that I can take advantage of. Plus I find it a much less daunting task to do about an A4 (or just over) clean up job than 10000px worth of digitally drawn art. It is tedious working at a computer for hours on end and, truth be told, I am very tempted to continue with the traditionally drawn pencil sketches even once I get a new tablet with working pressure.

The bottom line is that I feel there is much more freedom with a pencil and it makes it easier to draw scenarios. Doing these first couple of panels actually felt fun for the first time in ages. I have been doing a lot of research on how I wanted the pages and, more importantly, the setting of the Dreamyard to look and it was nice having my sketching pencils of different shades in order to do that...rather than swearing at my computer for losing connectivity with the tablet again.

Anyway, I'll probably wait and see what you all think of the finished product before I say for concrete that this will be how I do pages from now on.
