Just to be ironic, I decided to complete my icy snowglobe project over the few hottest days ever.
Started this one back in January but got stuck on the story phase and never got any finished artworks.

The story's about a little girl at some unspecified point in time who is searching for firewood unsuccessfully.
She meets a little boy who tells her that there's good pickin's of firewood in the forest, but she's been told not to go there.  Well...she goes anyway, and they get caught by an evil forest witch who protects the woods.  The boy begs her not to hurt the girl as he made her go there, so the witch traps the boy in a snowglobe.
The girl grows up treasuring the snowglobe and the boy trapped inside.
She goes back to the witch three times to ask her to release him, and on the third time the witch smashes the snowglobe.
The girl thinks that the boy is dead..but that evening he appears from a snowstorm and they are together and in love forever.

Bicycles, smoothies, planes and

Ahhh so the New York trip did not feel the urge to become destiny. Silly plane strikes.
Well, hopefully it will be postponed until June where we can rebook our appointments and wow the big apple.

Below is a poster I knocked out in a few hours one morning. I had doodled these characters a while ago and
was searching for some way to put them into context - Innocent smoothies seemed perfect. So there we go!

This is an image I finished about five minutes ago and entered for the AOI cycling competition.
I'm happy with it! it looks like a lovely patchwork quilt.

On other notes:

My business cards came - I'll show you a picture soon.

I had a lovely birthday on Saturday.
