Not languishing but busy

That's my excuse for not posting anything recently. I'm working on a couple of books and also on updating my portfolio and a new set of cards for my etsy shop.

Meanwhile here is some of my sketchbook work:

Step into Christmas

Sorry but I seem to have that song stuck in play in my head! 

Anyway, I've been busy finishing private commissions in time for Christmas - which I won't post up until after the season.  

Meanwhile I've been writing my Christmas cards and doodling on a lot of envelopes and also trying to participate in #illo_advent every day. I haven't quite managed that but here are some I've done in my sketchbook:

Thank you for reading my blog and, if I don't post again before Christmas, I wish you a joyous Christmas time.

Here's some work from my sketchbook and other work:

I'm working on making this a more finished piece.

I've been joining in with #illo_advent 
I'm not sure if I'll manage every day but I'm going to try!

24 sleeps to go

Even elves have shopping nightmares with their children.
