After illustrating professionally for a bit now I STILL find it completely strange that companies use my work and the general public actually buys it (hopefully!) Ha. Still it's a really nice feeling to stumble upon this in M&S:
I wanted to show you the original but I can't find it anyway here's a different colour way instead
So if you live in the UK you should TOTALLY go buy it. A steal at a £1 as well.. I may or may not have bought one (seriously why did I do that?)

SO I've set myself a couple of little briefs to try and help develop my skills. Starting with children 'cos they're easier. Some important points I have unearthed from drawing people:
- I really need to start being a bit more patient with myself.
- Stop swearing and threatening to "chop my own hands off because they're useless pieces of ham" (those words did actually leave my mouth. I'm sorry) when things don't go quite right straight away.
- Stop drawing the same handful of people because it's easy.
- Drawing glasses and freckles and big hair quiffs are FUN.
Here's my first attempt (not ever btw)
Have you got any tips for drawing people? I've love to know if you have any tricks for drawings hands.
