this won’t make much sense because you aren’t reading this in the same order that i’m publishing them, but no wonder i don’t post regularly – it because its taken over an hour to up load this set of images. ahhhhhhhhh!

RIP Brian the cat

My helpful assistant of many blog posts took against the big snow we had here. His ashes were scattered in the wild bit across the road where he spent many happy hours ignoring the lure of the cat treats.

amongst the household the amount of minor injuries will plummet.

So it goes

There were Dragons

Well I guess I can post this now that I’ve heard that I’m not in the exhibition.

Printing this monster was a pain in the behind. Hopefully Ive learned by ‘lets not be over ambitious’ lesson this time. Read the rest of this entry »

More Book Stuff

I’ll probably be able to think of a better title for this post later, but lets just go with that for now. I now I’v got a lot of projects on at the moment, so here’s another one –  a class of Japanese woodcut and book binding.

Space-ships?

So they aren’t actually space ships because they travel through hyperspace or what ever it its. And they aren’t actually spaceships because my arm drew them on the paper.
