At last I have a whole week (off work) to catch up on college and my health and habits, all of which I've missed almost bitterly. It's been a very, very busy past few weeks- too much- but not all of which has been trouble of course. Above are a few sketches from a recent commission for Spotlight magazine, focused around different positive student topics. They were a lot of fun to do and it was sweet to have a short side-project... and a job that doesn't require a name-tag.
Please do have a look at the final illustrations here.
It's a crazy time now, lots of change and much to do. My new husband and I are in the middle of a move into a lovely lodging house on a high-road in Falmouth. Our big window looks out onto the cascading red and green roof-tops of the town and even shows a peek of the dark blue water of the harbour and boats sitting still atop.
We keep the company of two lovely owners (the landlords), a couple other tenants, a collie-dog and a black and white house-cat. The first thing you see when you walk through the door, fully fashioned with a Tall Ship door knocker are two big, glowing fish tanks with all sorts of lovely fish that I wouldn't know how to name. It's maritime all the way and I feel slowly that Falmouth is starting to really sink into me. Or me into it. I look forward now to a full week of moving, running, swimming, and drawing like mad.
More very soon.

Above is a design I did recently on behalf of my grandmother, Christine Kaufmann. It is to be sold for a children's charity on the German home shopping network this June, or thereabouts.
Fun, huh?
