I've been neglecting this for a while, partly due to work stuff, partly because I've lost some momentum. I've got a few freelance design jobs on at the moment, which is good in a way (I can keep paying my bills!) but also quite depressing at the same time. I was a graphic designer for years and the whole reason I quit was to focus on the illustration side of things. Being back there doesn't make me feel too great... The pet portraits are still coming in and they are a welcome break from the computer, but they're not my passion like the books are.
