Printed 1605 BK, Before Kindle

I have been building my portfolio up a bit over the past few months, one of the projects if you like that my agent suggested was to make book jacket related images for the daily news feed they do over on the Eastwing website. I really like the news feed that we have on there, I think its a fantastic way to keep everyone sketching as well as being quite informative too! For example, did you know that today in 1605 Don Quixote was first published by author Miguel De Cervantes. It is one of those books that I have picked up many times and not managed to get all the way through, alittle like Moby Dick but I will eventually!
So to celebrate a brilliant piece of literature I have doodled a "mock" book jacket, very worn looking and rather dog eared but it looks like a book that has been loved and appreciated by many.
Happy Monday!

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a lovely break with family and friends. I spent alot of it running around seeing lots of people and even had a day trip out in the snow with the ladysnail which was nice!

Very belated I know as it is no longer Christmas but I forgot to put this other Christmas themed image up before I went off galaranting around.

I have been busy with other work but unforunatly I can't show any of it yet but I will be back up to speed soon, finding it hard to get back into the swing of things. More tea is needed I think.
