I'm dancing my way into digital... [sorry - couldn't resist] I still can't quite get my head around it, but it's good fun trying. It's even better knowing you don't have to clean up after yourself :)

p.s. For anyone that's been following - sorry I've been away so long!

Some of you might recognise this image from a few weeks ago, in which case you'll see that I've shamelessly squashed it into this week's IF topic - please, I beg your forgiveness. I actually took on a new identity of late, one that forced my drawings into the back seat; for the last few weeks I have been 'Kirstie the brave,' a pale-faced island explorer on a mission to enjoy sun, sand and sea...

You'll be pleased to hear the voyage was a great success.. and a thousand freckles and two sore shoulders later, I'm back.

Hope you're all having a great summer.
Look out for more updates soon!
All the best, K

And, of course, the sketch :)


Work in progress... complete with gloriously sunny day.


The tractor race proved too much for Willie...

Mad Men

Men that look like they belong to the 50's advertising era...

More character work...

Wednesday, 10 June 2009



I've been sketching frantically, trying to get this quirky male character right for a book project I'm working on. Meet some of the extras/distractions that came out in the process. Sometimes I start drawing a guy, and I end up with a child or grandma... weird huh.

Craving - work in progress sketches

Can't decide whether I like the scamp better. I think I might do...

Work in progress...


Coffee cake

We made this cake on the weekend. It really isn't going to last long. My excuse is that it keeps my energy levels up, before and after drawing sessions...   ...oh come on, Kirstie...   you're not fooling anyone.

Trying out some more formal drawing today... I really worry that at some point I'm going to forget how!

More from the book

Very quick drafts... most have already been discarded! I'm keeping the good stuff for a formal release some day soon.


Some old ones... sorry! I've been so busy I've not had time to add anything.
Oh the shame!
