as the dawn breaks over roof slates

I don't really like to clog up my blog with the same stuff, I like to give you visitors some variety. However, I'm working on a number of labour intensive drawings at the moment, these included. They are almost there. My next post will be the completed versions. So, if you've purchased advertising space, but do not see your ad yet, hang fire. They'll be along shortly.
People seem to like these step by step processes, though. In the past I've made a few such posts. To see my other step by steppers take a look HERE. I always think that this set is best viewed on slideshow.
I've said before, coincidentally in my last ballpoint zine, that one of the many things I love about the creative process is the way it surprises you. Sometimes, I feel, I have no idea where an idea comes from, but if you just trust yourself, and your pen, then it seems to unfold in front of your very eyes. I'm loving how these pieces have this bird theme. I have no idea why or how, but I'm loving it.
One last thing, have YOU seen the bird girl? I need to know.

Just to let you know - your first zine now has a "proper" home at my place.

Thank you, guys.

Dinah, I love it. I would LOVE rummage through the cabinet as there are some very interesting books, specifially the little bird one (Genine?).

We Three 3 and Carole, there is a possibility there will be a little spcae left. Firstly, I have to draw in all the already purchased ad space, then if there is anything left over I'll put it on Etsy. Keep posted.

Cheers, folks.
