"Lonely" Book Update

Been working on this series, and wanted to post some clips from the first and now third issue.

"Lonely," also known as " (l) o n (e) l y," is a prose memoir zine, with some narrative illustrations to accompany the text.  It's about being an only child, and one's identity in that regard.  For anyone who has read the twin memoir "Her," which poses the question who are you/how do you exist without your twin, this zine series I've been working on explores those same feelings, except from the only child perspective.

Check out the art below; first an art clip and text from the newest zine issue, and then some from the first issues:

"Are you alone, too?  Are you going or coming?  I don't know if anyone will pick her up at the train station.  No one will pick me up, out here.  I have to pick myself up, I suppose.  The more time passes, the more I see through the hourglass there won't be anyone to do that for me.  Literally or metaphorically."

Gingerbread House for Creative Tuesdays!

Hi All! I'm late but I'm getting my submission in just under the deadline and I had a lot of fun drawing this C.T, gingerbread house sketch, especially as I'm trying to work with new mediums.

 My little Gingerbread House was built by this Intrepid squirrel who is eating an acorn and admiring his handiwork. As far as the mediums that I did this in, same as usual I worked with ink and watercolor paper-- but the brown is actually 4 shots of espresso! I am experimenting by painting with mediums are not just paint, including different types of tea, wine, and good old coffee slash espresso.

This challenge is due today! So please go to the most recent entry at, and click on the link at www.creatuvetuesdays.blogspot.co.uk, to enter your Gingerbread House. Happy Creative Tuesdays, and thank you, Mister Toast!
