The Sun has definitely had his hat on today, he has made the  winter morning frost sparkle!

I have lots to smile about this January, I’ve managed to meet up with  lots of dear friends, who I’ve not seen for along time. I’m planning a Arts for Health drawing project at the Quad in Derby which will be a number of workshops , I’m really excited about it. Arts for Health is an area I’ve always wished to get involved with, so there’s another ticked box on my wish list!

Just before Christmas I have started to create some more secret friends which I’m enjoying, I’m in the 2nd phase of development…. but I’m afraid I can’t say any more than that at the moment.

I have updated Minty & Monty’s Logo, see what you think, comments gratefully received.

Cat & Fiddle Windmill West Hallam

Friday, October 15th, 2010

I always take a little sketchbook and a few colour pencils with me and I often find myself

drawing  a variety of  illustrations, which are very different to my Juvenile Children Illustrations.

This illustration is of a view that makes me feel happy and I love to draw tulips, it’s close to my home village of West Hallam.

It’s a view which is at a the back of St Wilfrids Church over looking the Cat & Fiddle Windmill and there is a road

coming down the hill. I’ve used a  black biro and coloured pencils!

Holiday fish & chips

I’m really enjoying keeping a Doodle Diary, I write about the days events and doodle

illustrations to go with the topic. I find it a comfort after a really good day or a sad grey day….

I’d like to share with you some pages from my Diary that I did on holiday following on from the

previous post!

If you ever stop on North Morte farm , do try Miles Fresh fish and Chips there the yummeist Fish & Chips I’ve ever had.

I have decided that when the weather is good I like to sit outside and illustrate, whether it’s in my back garden, a pub garden or better still on the beach. This summer I have spent a lot of time drawing on Woolacombe Beach, I’d like to share with you some of my illustrations…

I’ve been in a real whirl wind of work…Papers have been flying, steam has been coming off my pencil, ideas and butterflies flying around my head and know leaves are falling off the trees.

I have had some relaxing times too in the next few blog posts I hope to bring you up to speed with everything…..

I’ve not picked up my Doodle Diary for a few months and  I was just trying to reflect on the last few months, weeks,days,hours, minutes and seconds..

Doodle Diary-"Doing thing I'd never thought I'd do!"

I ran my first Cut-Out animation workshop in the Mac Suite at the Quad-It went well. I made a footballer to demonstrate how to make a movable paper character .

I went into a Derby School and helped run a Comic Life Workshop, Comic Life is a really child friendly piece of software to teach Children Literacy and story making.

On Valentines Day I chilled and had a big bunch of  12 beautiful red roses and chicken & chips with salad and lots of glasses Pinot Grigio wine- well a few!! Hick up!

Lazzatti are keeping me buzy too and I did a poster for the Long Eaton Art Room.
