Caution artist at work

My writing has been left to go into hibernation for the time being as sad as I am to admit. However the artist in me has sensed the spring air and is ready and raring to get out and about.
As such in the matter of a few weeks I have got three different art projects on the go. Funnily enough all came out of luck and coincidence.

The first project is for Sawyer Perry (read his blog here I emailed a while ago when I felt the artists itch (well that sounds disgusting) and asked if he was still looking for someone to draw his characters for his book (I have read several chapters and loving it) He accepted and we have been emailing back and forth ever since.

The second is a tattoo I'm designing to order for a work friend. I was actually drawing Sawyers pieces in the office when she grabbed my sketch book. Long story short after my stuff being passed around much to my embarrassment she asked if I will design her tattoo. I'm nearly done on this, it is quite large and elaborate and obviously I want to get this perfect. In a few weeks she will be getting it done and I have been invited to watch.

The third is for another book but I won't go into much detail yet as it is still very new.

I am really excited to be doing this again. I was put off by art for a while after my A level teacher almost crushed my imagination because it didn't follow certain artists style. Look out for more posts soon while I dig out my scanner!
