Ok, so it may be a bit early to start planning New Years Resolutions but since I started this blog my artwork has been on my mind ALL the time. I've always wanted to illustrate children's books - just somewhere along the way I forgot. Or, more honestly, I never thought that I could. Over the last few years though I've started thinking differently, started believing. After all if you don't believe in fairies then they don't exist.
I don't know why I draw the things I do, I don't have any idea where the characters come from, they just refuse to go away. All the above books are in various stages of completion - some have pictures, some have stories, some both. Two are at the stage where they can be sent out to prospective publishers and that's what I'll be doing in the New Year. And, I'll persevere; because now I believe again.
(I draw this picture in every one of my sketchbooks - just to remind myself of the goal - so it seems fitting that it makes an appearance in this 'sketchbook' too.)
