Here you go readers fellow illustrator Dom trevett sent me this snap from one of his epic bike adventures. If your a fan of tintin you will make a connection. I'm in the process of revisiting some tintin adventures with a few brews. Part of me is looking forward to that film coming out. But hey you cannot beat the books to learn a great deal for Herge's reasearch, detail and economy of line.

Today I've been over to Sheffield and met up with the talented Lee Ford, not seen him in nearly two years so there was much to discuss. Check his website in "Me Mates" section over on the right. We quickly checked the millennium galleries and spotted a work by Rob Ryan in the "Tea Topia" exhibition. Good to see you Mr Ford and keep grafting sir.

Well for those wondering I did tweak the little flat cap on the image below. the last few days I've had a thirst to revisit some of the tintin adventures. I've learnt Paddy is coming back on the tv soon with Take me out; brilliant tv viewing that makes me chuckle. Looks like a wet week is on the agenda readers and its gonna be more autumnal than summer. So get your brollies and hats at the ready. As for this evening I'm gonna give that cop drama Vexed another whirl with a brew of course.

Well this afternoon I've been drawing again fear not readers. I managed a few miles on my bike; the lights are needed early morning once more. The last two nights at my end at about 8.30pm I've enjoyed watching this little bat fly about outside which is a bit of fun.

I was thinking Lesley Garrett was leading the way for folk from Donny for a moment. Anyhow we continue.

Yesterday I did a bit of sourcing to look once again at the cover of "Billy Blue Hat", one of the first books I read at school. I was imagining myself sat on the same hill that Billy sits on with a brew of course, hence the image above. I'd love to get my hands on those books for a bit of nostalgia and digest Roger red hat and jennifer yellow hat once more for a chuckle. Now then readers who remembers Billy Blue Hat eh!!

Today I've read a book, scanned the papers took myself for a haircut and browsed the bookshop. I sat and had a brew on my own watching the world go by digesting the fashion of Donny. I also managed to conjure this little hound up on his bike.

Here you go readers it doesn't all work out. These were two recent book covers I produced for two new gift books. But they were deemed too cartoonish and not useable. Anyhow this chap needs a brew just got in after a brief trip out.
