Author & Muse: Get Busy… and other News!

I don’t just argue with my Muses…

Here’s #4 in the Author & Muse Stories – funny thing is, that this series started out (in concept) as being a “Brain & Body” series… except that I adore the Awkward Yeti and really didn’t want to step on his toes!

So I morphed it into being about more than my struggles between my brain and body. A&M #4 is the last remaining link to that original concept and was the most difficult thing to work out how to draw so far.

I have over 30 of these stories to illustrate, the first 18 are already drawn and inked in my main sketchbook, they just need colour…
But because I do everything by hand (as opposed to digital) it takes me a week to do one whole page from blank page to finished colour!


I’m thinking about doing a Midsummer Competition, so I was wondering what sort of prizes people might like to recieve. I also haven’t figured out exactly what the competition would be about yet, so keep an eye on this page for further news…

Comment below if you have any thoughts on either matter!

Author & Muse: Playtime

Here’s the latest in the Author & Muse stories series!

This one pretty much describes the whole of the school Spring Holidays with the younger two children… o’course it was written during the Summer Holidays last year, but the truth never ages.

Hope you enjoy it!

NB: I am aware that this particular picture is bad; we were in the middle of Storm Hannah when I took the picture and the light was changing really rapidly.

Author & Muse: Coffee

Coffee… an essential thing in my house…

Here’s the latest story strip from the Author & Muse series…

I would like to dedicate this story to everyone who finds it impossible to do even the basic things first thing in the morning without at least two cups of coffee…

However, I would especially like to mention Terry Kroenung and Maggie Stewart-Grant who have had an especially rough time recently!
