Well, what can I say other than I’m a lapsed blogger! It’s been a funny couple of months recently really and I’ve been very busy, but for once in a non-creative way. Apart from a double-page spread for the How it works magazine, involving a Medieval Torture Chamber, which I would definitely class as one of my more unusual commissions! Do you know torture stretchers and wheels are torturously hard to draw! Never again.
So this lapsed blogger is now trying to catch up a bit before the silly season really gets going. So what can I talk about today? Well my life this past month has definitely been worthy of a good British soap! Lots of ups, downs and simply oddness all round. For instance my neighbour who recently called out two fire engines, because she’d burned her microwave by placing her food and ALL the packaging into it, which understandably under the strain promptly blew up. I’ve been told the microwave now looks post-apocalypitic. Needless to say the fireman were not overly impressed, and I must say looked rather disappointed that there wasn’t a raging fire for them to put out. Just a little old lady, contentedly eating her cremated lunch in front of the telly, which was on full volume. Television quiz shows have a lot to answer for in my opinion. As we’re talking post-apocalyptic, only this morning I managed to scold myself making coffee. Yes making coffee! The plunger decided to vomit scolding coffee all over me. So, all in all not the best last few weeks I’ve ever had. No illustration can really describe my last few weeks, but I promise to share some Christmas illustrations with you next week.
