This was the result of me messing around the other day with some ink. This was originally just going to be Big Ben, but then I decided to add Peter Pan into the mix. And then I got it in Photoshop and decided to add a little color. After seeing it like this, I might go back to the original and add some watercolor… but I’ll have to see if I get around to it.
Here’s a little Throwback Thursday for you guys. I found this mouse the other day that I drew almost a year ago. He looked a little strange so I decided to take another go at him and this is what I came up with in my little ten minute doodle time.
Since I haven’t been posting as much as I’d like, I thought I’d give you all a quick update on what I’ve been working on.
Someone asked me the other day how many books I had illustrated… and I had no idea. Well, after checking my folder of completed projects, I can now say I have completed six picture books and one book that I’m not quite sure what it is, but I drew the pictures for it.:P Three of these are now in print and can be purchased on Amazon (see my previous posts for details).
This is a partial image from my latest book that I just sent out this morning.
The reason I didn’t know how many books I’ve completed was that I have so many projects on the go that I have trouble keeping track. I am currently, actively working on two books while one book is currently on hold with half the illustrations completed.
I just started one this week featuring this lovely new cello. I’m really excited by how this one’s turning out! But it’s a long one so I’m going to be working on it for a while…

I set up an Etsy shop a few months ago where I posted some of my prints. A few of them have sold, but there are still some left, and the posting are about to expire in two weeks. So… if any of you were ever interested in purchasing one of my prints, you can do so now for a limited time. I don’t really have time at the moment to focus on the shop so I’m not going to renew the postings until I have time to think again.
Here are the images you can purchase.

My third illustrated book was just released today on Amazon: Corporate Fish – by Xanthos Likes. Of all the books I’ve illustrated so far, this one was my favorite to work on. It’s a really funny story and you all need to read it, so go buy it. (And you can believe me because I make no royalties off of these, it’s just that good.) :P
This is also the first one released where I actually designed the cover… so that’s pretty cool. I think it turned out alright. :)
