I Never Have Been Much of a Journaler...But I Had to Blog About This!

Every day small adventures come and go and every day I think, "ooh. I should blog about this".  But life carries on in it's tidal wave fashion, and blog updating gets sloshed around in the undertow.

I've known for quite some time now that I am not the journaling type. So why do I constantly question myself as to why I never update my blog?  Over the years I've been given many a journal.  Each one I managed to sporadically fill to, oh, the third page or so.  I guess there's no hope for this until I set an appointment to update my blog on a regular basis on my iCal.  Three alarms will be needed to light a fire under my bum for blog updating.  I do realize it should be part of my marketing strategy, so iCal, here I come.

I do have some great news to share since I've last posted: I have an agent!  I am now represented by The Bright Agency--a really cool agency based in London.  I'm super excited about this opportunity and curious to see what illustration life has in store for me around the bend!

On that note, it's time for me to get moving on my illustration work and get some sketching done!

Here is something I'm working on at the moment.  Still have to finish up the background and add the final details to the piggy and frog:
