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!

The Latest News from the World of The Teigr Princess – Pages and Bunnies!

You might not have realised it, but I am always working on something here on my Website. I don’t have anyone to do it for me, so the changes are slow to show up.

The latest change is under -Teigr Books> Mandy E. Ward> Wanderings.
Go on go have a look…

Essentially, I have posted the majority of my single page illustrations and cartoons under that page – Wanderings includes (so far) Lesser Known Creatures, Meet the Characters and What Do You Think…

Below is a small selection from all three catagories!

The Author & Muses are taking longer than I expected to get drawn… but to keep you amused, there is also a page of singles under that heading too…

For example, this is the latest of the Author & Muse Singletons:

Anger Bun is a wonderful character created by Ruth, a Craft Designer with a particular talent for creating embroidery… as you can see, Anger Bun is a popular subject!

The Many Faces of Anger Bun



You can find her on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/theangerbun

Anger Bun seemed the perfect character to help me introduce my New Muse, Salvador Bunli…
Salvador takes care of the Art side of things and Stardust (the Craft Muse) appears to be very happy to have the help!

Well, that’s all for now… I hope you enjoy the new pages!
