So it’s still in the works, but I’m drawing away when I can to get Elizabeth J. M. Walker’s book of tales, “The Boy Who Owned The Forest,” finished.
Here is a preview of one of my favourite stories “The Winter Of The River.” There is still much to do, but I’ll get there.
I’ve been working away at drawing for a collection of Elizabeth J.M. Walker’s fairy tales. I have made two zines previously with her, “The Boy Who Owned the Forest” and “The Maze”, but she went and found a real book publisher, Handersen Publishing, and they’re going to make a real fancy book.
It will be out this year, not sure when, but I’m trying my best to finish off the pictures. The main problem being is that I start new ones before I finish the ones I’m working on. There’s so much I want to draw.
These are pictures for the story “The Tree”.
I’ve had the greatest honour to draw pictures for Katie Haegele’s latest zine about Christmas. We didn’t quite get it together to print it before Christmas, but the stories are lovely and sad and I think they can be read at any time of the year.
Christmas, time to get your melancholy on.
I find that there’s a lot of controversy surrounding the right time to take down one’s Christmas tree, including the idea that there is a right time. I see people’s frizzled trees lying on the curb as late as February, which gives me the willies. I have inherited my mother’s fussy, snobbish belief that the only acceptable time to take down the tree is on the Epiphany, the 12th day of Christmas. I can’t believe I care about this, but I do.

Hot on the heels of my previous collection, here is another lot of cards I made for friends and work friends.
16 pages of love in full colour in A6 size.
I’m going to take it easy on these this year as I have a picture party coming up in August and need to work on that. Available at my ETSY store.

This was for Caroline. Good luck in the new job.
I’ll be running a Zine workshop today at the Chidren’s Festival at the Seymour Centre. It’s from about 10am but I’ll be there from 1pm to 4pm. There’s a whole bunch of things happening, including the lawn library and silent disco. So I decided to make a new zine for the kids. The Cat Zine.
I’ll have copies available soon for the rest of you.
