A pair of responses done for Pop My Mind, from one of the seeds set by British Art Show 8. These were responding to the piece Auditory Learning by Simpson & White, and the first piece was featured on the British Art Show blog as part of an article about the Pop My Mind responses. You can read it here.
It’s coming up to the most romantic time of the year – if you believe the hype – again, and as such I have gifted you all with another batch of bad puns and cute animals! Each of these designs is available to buy on a variety of things at my Redbubble, if you’re so inclined.
Fanart is fun and all, but original characters are where it’s at. December was Original Characters month, mostly featuring the cast of the novel series I finished drafting in November. For Fun Facts and Story Origins of any of the characters seen here, you can hit up my sketch blog. Follow me there to see January’s doodles – the theme is Monster Boys this time, if that tempts you – in semi-real time on a mostly daily basis, as well as WIP’s of other things I’m working on!
And so another year is done, and a new one has begun. I’ve officially been A Graduate for over a year now, and I am possibly more tired than I ever was while I was at uni but there we go. I just wanted to write a quick post summing up my past year, and giving you guys a look at what my plans are for 2017 – which will hopefully be less of a global trainwreck than 2016 has been.
I’ve made a lot of work this year. I’ve done so many doodles and filled so many sketchbooks, but I still feel like I haven’t progressed my actual body of work enough. It was only towards the end of this year that I got more organised and driven about pushing to get projects done, even with my full time hours at work. Free time is for other people, after all.
So this year I’ve planned out far more projects in advance, and some of my long term ideas should come to fruition at the end of 2017. I’ve spent too long thinking about projects I want to do ‘when I have the time’ and not enough time actually making time to do them. Well, now I’m making the time. I want to make these things happen and, for the time being at least, I’m the only one I have to answer to about making them. And I don’t put up with excuses from anyone else, so why should I from myself?
2017 might end with me very tired and covered in ink, passed out over my own keyboard. Honestly, I’m looking forward to it. So keep watching, friends, because I promise you there will be Content on This Blog over the next year.
And if it doesn’t, I give at least ten of you permission to hunt me down with spears.
