I'm a little stressed at the moment. I am wearing a very large and heavy hat... it is the hat of looming deadlines, decorated with feathers of dread expectation. This hat is rather exciting and impressive, but I'm not sure how long I can wear it before my knees buckle under the weight and I end up looking foolish.
I'm working at my usual rate... that of an arthritic sloth. I've never had so many projects on the go and in the wings. It's great really, but my fear of letting publishers down haunts me in the waking hours of the night.
At the moment I'm working on a book crammed with ink line drawings... oh, so many! Well, I've reached the halfway mark... just another 60 pages to go!
I bought a really cool PS toolset to help me through, from a clever chap called Frenden. He has made my life so much easier... lovely guy. Whilst I do make most of my PS brushes myself, I just couldn't get the ink-pen right. But Frenden did get it right and I really bless him for being such a clever chap. If you click the image you can go and get yourself a groovy PS toolset too. Or just go and check out his awesome art.
There are other projects sitting on my desk like un-walked dogs, hungrily eyeing up my grand hat. Soon, my lovelies, soon!
A warm hello to whoever is reading this. Welcome to Petra's blog. I'm an illustrator of children's books. And I enjoy living in North Wales with my wonderful partner and fellow adventurer, Iain. I have kept and killed numerous blogs and websites over the years, joined several social sites and then left again, sometimes within a day. I am totally wayward in my web-ish ways. And here I am again blogging random stuff. Will I keep it going for more than a month? Do I care? No! Would anybody ultimately care? Definitely not!. But anyway here goes....
