Serendipitously, this week’s IF prompt and my sketchbook theme for Arthouse Co-op’s 2012 Limited Edition project matched! So here are a few pages from my book will be shipped off tomorrow morning. As I was working on the project, a character and story started to develop which I want to explore with more depth. May I introduce…Otis, the little owl. Here he is knocked off his beak and finds himself plummeting towards the great Unknown. Poor little guy hasn’t even learned to fly yet!

On other news, I am very excited because I’ve got some very EXCITING collaborations awaiting me on my desk…A possible foot in the door to the fascinating world of children’s book illustration! I will post further info here once everything is official. Also, I am working on a self portrait for Arthouse Coop – mini mini portrait…don’t quite know how I will capture the essence that is Paintblotch on such a mini canvas…there is enough room on there for my ear. As soon as that is finished though, I will post and hopefully dear readers you will be able to understand me a little more.
