Positive moves...

Wow! Time flies when you're having fun! First, my big news... I'm very pleased to say that I've recently been helped out by the lovely people at Startup Direct, who help young businesses and entrepeneurs with loans and business mentoring and other great perks. They've really helped me with setting up for the future and I can't wait to get going sorting out my studio and taking advantage of all the mentoring that I can get. 


If you're currently thinking of going into business for yourself, I'd highly recommend you take a look. 


It's been ages since my last post because I've been super busy getting ready for the coming months which are shaping up to be a very productive time. As a kick of, here's a quick sketch from the other night that I really like. I might even develop this guy a little further and paint him up in full. He's a cummudgenly old tax man.


I'm really enjoying working entirely digitally at the minute from sketch to final, and I can't see myself going back now to using paper and pencils for my initial work. Although I'll always keep them close at hand just in case :P

The other big thing at work at the minute is sorting out my promo cards for the next few months. I decided to paint up a new piece of work, especially for the occasion, you may recognise it's subject. This is my first time mailing out promo cards so it's all a learning experience and an exciting time. The cards finally arrived today, and they look great. I'm looking forward to getting them out.
