Which is bad on me, but I HAVE been super busy.
I've decided that I'd quite like to get into political cartooning- hopefully before my bank balance runs out... I've been filling up sheets and sheets of copy paper with roughs of politicians faces )most of which I'm a little too embarrassed to post here), with the hopes of eventually capturing a likeness. I think at this point it's pretty obvious which side of the fence I'm plonked myself, but I still want to be fair in my assessment of the situation- although I have picked a side, all politicians annoy me in different ways (although some more than others). I can't stand papers like a certain tabloid that has popped up since the referendum... but I won't go down that route (it's one for a rant blog I've been meaning to set up).
ANYWAY- I emailed Chris Riddell (who has always been one of my absolute favourite illustrators/ political cartoonists), partly because I'm a cheeky little lady who wants every bit of help that she can get, and partly because, why not? I wasn't expecting him to respond (as I'm sure he's extremely busy), but he did! He even offered to look at my work and give me some pointers- I always love that- when someone who is insanely talented is actually a nice person and goes out of their way to help people; there are way too many people in this world who aren't at all like that. But yeah, it makes me feel happy when I find out that I'm a fan of someone who's worth being a fan of :-)

So I've just ordered these designs that I've made for the Ragdoll Cat Club- hopefully they should be here soon!
I didn't pass my interview for SSF, but at least that means that the other person that applied to the post will have it :-)

Here are a couple of my Inkpril drawings. I've been TRYING to get one done for each day of this month, but I've been having such a busy time lately, and it's funny how time just GOES!

Here they are coloured in and backed with card. I don't have any icelolly sticks lying around (maybe it's an excuse to treat myself...) so I used refined card. I'm hoping to get some actual children to make them for my presentation on Friday. Fingers crossed.
I'm always tempted to say "Inktober" just because it sounds better... Ahem. This is yesterday's contribution.
I haven't been updating as much as I should have been recently because I've been sick. I have been drawing though (which is something, I guess) and I will be uploading in due course. However, I have got an interview on Friday, so I'm busy preparing for that. I'm designing some paperdolls, which will hopefully be my NEXT blog post. For now, happy Easter!

I have the flu at the moment, but I don't like not working anymore... I always have to be drawing and learning new things.
