No events planned
So much has happened in my life over the past few months; most notably swelling up to the size of a whale as I await the imminent arrival of my SON AND HEIR! Yes, I'm OFFICIALLY ON MATERNITY LEAVE UNTIL January 2014, WOOHOO!!! So only personal/fun projects from now until then. If you were hoping to hire me for work/commissions etc. very sorry, but I will probably be too occupied with a little baby to be able to help you if it's urgent. Please head on over to my group, Sweatdrop Studios and email my colleagues your enquiry, they should be able to help you.
I've been pretty busy 'til now though, as I've got several books out! More announcements to come as we get closer to release dates, but 101 Top Tips From Professional Manga Artists is out now and has received great reviews so far! I collaborated with a fabulous bunch of artists to produce this book, primarily aimed at intermediate artists. Go buy it!
My fortnightly tutorials for Letraset's blog on drawing Manga Characters will still continue for the forseeable future. 'A Brush With Magic', a fantasy light novel I wrote for NaNoWriMo 2012, I'm fully illustrating it and hope to get it out in October. If you want to find out more about it and read excerpts or view related artwork, head to my Tumblr 'brushmagic' tagged posts. I also intend to get volume 2 done of Love Stuffing, and to pick up FujoFujo again!
