Finally finished another page of my story. The problem with doing something that takes a while is that when you come up with an idea, or a story in this case, the longer it sits in your brain waiting to be vomited up, it becomes less interesting by the day. Maybe thats just me. always looking for something new. I think its a problem that many of us have that prevents us from continuing on with things because they get boring and we want to do something new. but its only through perseverance that can complete a large project. So my tip to you… stick with an idea no matter how stupid is seems to feel after a while. because once you’ve finished it you have experience and you can start on something new.
Meanwhile heres another page from my story. making a wish in the fountain is what my little character is doing. can you see him throwing the coin? well im starting on my next drawing now. i already know what im drawing and i have this really great idea about connecting two of the drawings but don’t want to spoil the surprise!
When you are wearing shades of grey, big black shoes and fur everywhere I think you need something to lift it out of the depths of dreariness…. Cue yellow manikins.

Its raining today which is nice. I’m so glad the weather is cooling down because I can’t stand sweaty, hot days. I’ve been sketching with my quill and ink (which is fast running out!). I have some gold ink which I’ve been desperately wanting to experiment with but not sure what to draw with it?
This building was actually the local post office when I was younger. However today it is a vintage shop, and barely recognisable from what it used to be. Its not a very good vintage shop either which is disappointing because the interior is fantastic. maybe a sketch of the interior is where I can use my gold ink…
