My exciting news for this week is that I've been added to the list of illustrators on the Nosy Crow website. I've been working with them on a book called "Open Very Carefully" starring my favourite crocodile. Please click here to take a look!

I have recently been working on a fairy tale book project for a Gaelic educational resource publisher. It involved drawing 1 main image for each story and a couple of black and white vignettes, which I really enjoyed because I don't get to use my dip pen as much as I'd like. It was sent to the printers on monday, so here is a sneaky peak!

I am falling in love with mezzotint but in a way its a very annoying process too. Its really hard to see how much you've burnished away. I didn't get it quite right here with the white lines but I'm going to keep working on it and see if I can soften it up a bit with my trusty roulette.
