Sept 2010, illy No.2

We are all a bit heartbroken here at the moment at Latchford Towers.  Holly, our much-loved family dog was put to sleep earlier this week after finally succumbing to the various ailments that had troubled her for a few years.

Holly, a little West Highland Terrier with a BIG personality, joined our family aged 5 years old after we collected her from the RSPCA rescue centre. She enjoyed a comfortable ( spoiled??!) little life with us for about 8 years and her passing has left a huge gap in our lives.
Being a freelancer and working from home meant I had a constant companion and whilst the house seems very empty with out her there is still a very strong sense of her presence.

She will be irreplaceable.
Anyway, I thought I would do her a little painting.

SEPT 2010, illy No.1: "Summer Hols"

It's a crazy time at the moment, with so much going on (which is great!) but I really want to try and keep up with my personal work, especially messing around with digital illustration and concept work. I am keen to keep/ develop my style but really , REALLY need to up my game in terms of light, colour and design generally.
There is so much incredible stuff out there and I feel I have so much still to learn.

Anyway, this piece is called "Summer Hols" and as you can see the kid has let his imagination get the better of him while playing a game on his own!

Please feel free to critique my stuff.
