    Today I've been sketching on my light box. This lengthy process involves a Frankenstein like cutting off of heads, hands, changing fabric patterns and layering of lanterns to get the final outlines I'm happy with. Meet 'Dragon Girl', a new piece in progress for a local Art Competition.

    Sneak peek!
Broadway Market
A little glimpse at a draft cover for a new leporello that unfolds to create a market square. On the outside of the square are the more established traditional shops, inside the square is a busy market reflecting the diversity and energy of London’s city markets. Loosely based on Tooting’s markets but you’ll recognize Shepherds Bush, Brixton, Peckham and others too.
We’re planning a series of stand up stalls and people too. More details as work progresses. design by Natsko Seki, a brilliant illustrator.

    #PWPoePrompts Day 25: Writers block tips👩‍💻🤯🚫 I really hope it doesn't sound arrogant when I say that I'm one of those writer's who doesn't believe in writer's block.

I guess that's because I'm quickly realising, the days I though I had it, often wound up being some of my best ever writing days, if I managed it right.

If I'm feeling like my writing is "blocked", there's always a chance I've been writing too long and need a break, but in terms of feeling stuck with a scene, I just think, that part of the playing and thinking of what should come next, is a natural part of the writing process.

I feel like even on the days I don't feel like writing at all (which are rare, but do happen) that I can always trick myself into writing at least a sentence to get me going. Even if it feels like the worst sentence I've ever written, I often go back and think, "hey, nice job there past Mel". If I have a bunch of days where I still feel like the writing seems dry, I might watch or read something I know I love to get the juices flowing again. Or taking myself out to cafes or outdoors to write, always provides fresh scope for the imagination as well.

But mostly I find I can push through and at least write SOMETHING if I put my mind to it. It might not be any good, but if it's bad, I can always work on rewriting it tomorrow, and if it's good? Well that's just a bonus.

I love this quote by writer Lois Lowry: "I have never suffered from writer's bock. In fact, I don't believe in it. It's a made-up term that has taken on some kind of silly importance. Writing is a job. Some days you don't feel like doing your job. But there is no "teacher's block" or "dentist's block." I can't figure out why we have created this mysterious phrase .. only for writers .. which only means "don't feel like doing this right now." I find, I'm inclined to agree. 
That said, it's always important to find balance between work and play, so the above doesn't really apply if you've been overdoing it. In which case,  rest. Take long walks, and binge on Netflix until you've adequately recharged, and don't let yourself  feel guilty for taking the time to do so 💖🧘‍♀️✨

    Hi guys! So tonight I’m chipping away a bit more with my second coffee witch house. You might remember me sharing some of it a bit ago with my Minotaur barista :) honestly I had no intention of this turning into such a large project and had to take a break from it for awhile. I also had no intention of drawing small :/ however this is what seemed to work for this. I think it’s really important to learn from each project you work on especially when your self taught. One thing I’ve found particularly rewarding about doing such a large piece with small details is you can really create this entire world and seeing it all come together reminds you that your imagination is a very real place. 💖 #wip
