Seriously. Don't tell anyone. You really do have to keep your cake holes shut about me posting this. It's a stop gap post whilst I catch up with myself, and actually make a new drawing. So why the secrecy? Well, remember when I was away a little while ago? I was actually completing illustrations for a book. It's a little book that should be out in the autumn. This is one of the illustrations from it.
As I got toward the deadline I realised that I might just have left things a bit late (why change the habits of a lifetime?) and so I spent the last month just drawing. Quite literally. I sat in the chair for a month and drew drew drew. When I could be bothered I'd schlep my sorry ass into the kitchen for some tea or some food, but that's it. Pure drawing.
But, I ain't allowed to show you any of it. Or tell you about it. Yet. Not until the book has been printed. I can't wait for that time. I'm really pleased with some of the work I produced. And was absolutely astounded by what I could achieve when I got my arse into gear, rather than sitting round thinking about it.
Anyway, what it does mean is that when the book finally goes to print I'll have loads of new drawings to share with you. There should never ever be a time when I go for a week without posting.
Now go away. Keep your traps shut. And don't tell anyone you've seen this drawing. Or I really will have to kill you.
