Shameless Self-Promotion

I've realized that I probably should use this blog for self-promotion a bit more, seeing as I'm currently relying on my artwork -and two part time jobs- to support myself.

So I have a bit of news.

My website has updated here:http://www.carolineparkinson.co.uk/ and you can now buy my sixty page Brain Food sketchbook, as well as the more reasonably sized Exile's Daughter and the manga style comic Inner City.

Should you wish to support a parasitic time wasting artist (who is however, no longer on the dole and persists in getting up at seven to go for early morning runs) through the credit crunch, buying my comics ( or even commissioning some artwork off me) is a good way to start.

My comic Do Not Feed The Bear is now on the children's comic site Kidjutsu here: http://www.kidjutsu.com/comic/do-not-feed-bear. Kidjutsu also features a lot of child-friendly comics by other authors.

And you can join a Facebook group here:http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=193103344#/group.php?gid=46706416970&ref=mf for a book I illustrated recently: Vet School-Getting your Foot in The Door. I'm currently working on a similar book about law school.

And I will be sharing a table with Sally Thomson at the Mile End Comics Thing here:http://www.ukwebcomixthing.co.uk/

You'd think, if I had so much time on my hands, I would have bothered to find a larger piece of paper.

Trust in the Snow

Here are two pages from the Parable comic I'm working on at the moment. I'm experimenting with texture, taking photos of wood and bits of ice and fiddling about with them in Photoshop.
Not sure how much more of this I'll be able to post, for spoilery reasons. The first volume of Parable hasn't even come out yet and this story is for the second volume.

I don't usually post photos, but snow on Wells beach is pretty unusual. It was these, or a reworking of a comic page indistinguishable from the previous version by anyone except me.
There was a seal swimming about while I took the third picture. It came pretty close, but not close enough for my digital camera to take a clear photo.
