some pretty things

And wouldn't you know, I drew a ship in a bottle in the artwork for You Can't Scare a Princess!. Here's a little sneak peek at a scene of pirates ransacking the palace (spot the bottle and its furry little inhabitant):



Stuart and I were going to the opera, so we had a picnic supper on the steps of St Martin-in-the-Fields and I had a little browse of the second issue of the fab Comix Reader. Have you got hold of your copy yet?
