I've been busy illustrating Bedtime Steps - 123... I'm aiming to release this little book in August, but I am still unsure about Bear's colours. Just a sneaky preview. I'll continue to work with this until I'm happy! Any ideas?
I have been writing a little story about a solitary bee. Now, I know my little image is not exactly as a bee should be, but I thought he looked cute. Why the story about a solitary bee? Well, last year, we had a solitary bee that had made a little hole in the wall, just above our kitchen window. It would fly in and out all day, and I was worried that it was a wasp, and that there was a nest. However, after doing a little research, I realised it wasn't a wasp, and that I had nothing to worry about. Apparently, solitary bees are not aggressive, and they are great pollinators.

I've been busy this week. I had decided to re-draw my Lots of Fish illustrations. I thought it might be nice to have a printed version of the story, and so, I've been re-working the images. I'm now using a different software, and I thought it would be a challenge, but I've been pleasantly surprised. I've enjoyed it - a bit unnerving, really. I haven't encountered any complications as of yet. All good, so far...
Thought I’d start the new year off with a Little bit of reading. It’s my favourite pastime and I couldn’t think of anything better –
I love the process of creating characters and mystical worlds. Writing takes you on a journey like no other. Sometimes it’s an easy ride, but often, it’s a winding pathway that’s laden with obstacles. You never know what is going to happen or where you are going to go. Exciting!
Happy New Year!
