Goodbye 2009

OK, well the year is nearly over, and thank you to people for popping in and visiting my blog. I can’t say how much it has been appreciated. I’m going to try and keep it more updated in the coming months, and also try to include more works in progress and sketches. It's been a dramatic and emotional year for me and my partner, so I'm glad to see the back of 2009, but it ended with her being declared clear of cancer of the throat a few days before Christmas after months of chemo and radiotherapy, so I raise a glass tonight to a great Christmas present and to better times ahead.

Anyway... scribbles... This was where my head was at after looking at Kay Nielsen's work and Florence Harrison a lesser known illustrator from the golden age of British illustrators. A bit of an experiment really. I include the sketch as well.

Seasons Greetings!

Happy Yule, Saturnalia, Hannukah, Christmas etc... Danielle has snow on her head. More personal stuff, with a bit of a nod to Mr Elvgren.

The Steampunk Harem & The Morrigan

A quick update. Two characters of the week from Concept Art.org The first is 'The Steampunk Harem' and the second is 'The Morrigan'. The full version and a crop, which bizarrely I felt looked a bit better flipped... weird... I have a thing for stone circles...
