morning coffee drawing



I just used my new pen nib to draw this self portrait. It doesn't look all that much like me, but that's okay. Ever since I was a kid and saw Norman Rockwell paintings, I've wanted sticky-out ears. I don't have them, but I like to draw myself with them anyway.

Two cool websites: Alex Milway referred me to the blog of Viviane Schwarz, and I'm looking forward to the upcoming Peckham launch of There are Cats in this Book. I have a copy of her book Shark & Lobster, which is a magnificent example of crossover between picture books and comics.

And my illustration critique group used to meet in the studio of Kev Hopgood, who's done a mind-boggling amount of professional comics and managed to support his family with the business, which is very encouraging. He's just launched a complete overhaul of his website here.
