One from the sketch book for Illustration Friday. She may be small but I definitely wouldn't mess with her!

Moving space....

At the end of September I'll be moving out of my little studio and up the hill to a big room I'll be sharing with some other "creative types". Although I'm excited about the move, I can't deny that I'll miss the friends I've made while I've been here- Jock, the annoyingly brilliant comic book artist who lives upstairs and who provided my kettle, Alan, the writer from over the road, Paula, who had this studio before me and brings us lunch on Tuesdays, Cathy the story teller, who shared her stories of Charlie Crow, and all the people who've just popped in to say hello over the years.
Thankfully I won't be saying goodbye to Wendy, who has kept me company and away from facebook so often in the past, as I'll be visiting her in her new studio, where we shall continue to throw paint around and talk about cake and ebay.

 packing boxes.....
So I'm having a farewell Open Studio all next week. I'll be displaying some of the illustrations I've done recently, and I'll have some paintings and cards for sale too. Pop in if you're passing, Jocks kettle is always on!

AOL Blog- just when you thought it was safe to go out and illustrate....

Illustrators beware! The AOL blog today suggests that artists are being targeted by a scam.
If true, I think the scammers must have been miss-informed about how much illustrators earn!

I've missed a few Illustration Fridays during the summer, so I thought I'd sneek a quick one in...
