A Well-Earned Break (though I say so myself)


Yes, at last: a little bit of time off. I finished off all the most pressing stuff on my 'to do' list on Friday, and my next event, at a school in Stockport, isn't until this Friday, which has left nearly a whole week to play. Yahoo!

It's been an unusual, and exceptionally busy period for me, juggling lots of things at once, and trying not to let too many fall from my grasp, unlike my poor Rickety Barn cows:

I realise that I haven't had any real time off since I began the first sketches for my Bears on the Stairs project way back in June.

Actually, I have a little something planned, to help me relax properly and stop me just getting on with all that back admin (I haven't done my accounts in months - eeeeek).

That's the trouble with being freelance and working from home: there's always plenty to be getting on with, and I've never been very good at turning off.

So, I'll check in next weekend and fill you in on what I've been up to...

Enjoy your break Lynne, and have a good time in Stockport on Friday. I'm up North this week at the NCBF.

Wow! I came upon your site in a rather circuitous manner. . . reading a friend's blog (Bob Brault.). I admire his work so much and figured those who enjoyed and followed him must be pretty sharp (like I ain't!), so I followed the trail to your site. Very, very good. I'm almost tempted to invite you to my blog, but I'd be so embarrassed! An artist I'm not. Your work is incredible. Makes me think I'll take up reading children's books again. donkimrey@gmail.com

The last drawing is a master piece, in my opinion.
