tides out

I have been plucking up the courage to post a picture on GCI`s blog.

I have decided on `Tides Out` a painting based on a photo i saw of a great fishing boat.

Two characters having tea with a bored dog.

I look forward to seeing some of the work from other illustrators that is mabey not represented on their webpage!

The Frankfurt Book Fair 2007

I spent two days last week 'walking the floor' of the Frankfurt Book Fair chatting to some of our existing customers and seeking out new ones. Quite exhausting but I hope ultimately quite productive too.

If you have never been to Frankfurt before, it is staggeringly large. So large that there are 'travelators' to speed up your progress between the halls...

And if walking seems too much like hard work as the day wears on, you can always hop on one of the courtesy shuttle buses that cruise endlessly around the perimeter of the Fair.

Rugby card finished

Well it's done, bar possible final tweaks by the client. I'm glad to get it out of the way, spare time is very short at the moment for various reasons and I've been promising this card since early summer!
