It may be winter outside...

A few shots taken from my driveway as the snow cleared this afternoon.  Very proud of the surrounding landscape, extremely lucky to live in such a picturesque place.  Alas, the break in the snow did not last long and another few inches has fallen since.  Its a good job the fridge is well stocked...

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... it's... oh.

If you are in trouble with loan sharks, dangling off the side of a cliff, trapped in a car that's about to fall through a crack in a major American bridge, on a hi-jacked plane or in any other form of peril, you could call... The Rubbish Superheroes.  I wouldn't bother though, they'll probably just call the police for you.

In Paul We Trust...

After an astonishing display of psychic prowess, Weymouth born 'Paul' the Octopus is offered a lucrative deal with Channel 4 to replace aging Noel Edmonds as the host of 'Deal or No Deal'.  The cephalpod is said to be 'delighted' at the fortunate turn in his career.  Analysts predict a watery response to the change in line-up in the popular daytime quiz show.

La vie en jaune

An illustration for a Children's picture book I've been working on whilst listening to Radio 4 plays.  I hope the latter doesn't filter in to the former too much.

A little Monday glamour...

Feeling a little sleepy and disheveled today so decided to post this old sketch to cheer me up. I think Monday morning glamour should be compulsory, just to clear the grey drizzle a bit.
