Coloured version of honeymoon comic

I'm getting a bit behind on this sketchblog. I built up a nice stack of sketches over the summer but the autumn weather is too horrible to sketch outside and work has been crazy lately. Still, have a coloured version of the honeymoon gift comic I sketched. 
It was fun to draw. If you would like something similar feel free to contact me!

The episode of the Dunesteef podcast which I illustrated, Tethered to the Cold and Dying, has gone live on their website here. They've also just won a Parsec award, which is pretty cool.

Canal boats on the Grand Union canal

This was a really quick sketch. I'm currently based in Leamington Spa. We're pretty close to Birmingham, which has the biggest canal network in the world, apparently. I'd like to live in a canal boat. I'm the right size for one.

The Drabblecast -Five Ways to Fall in Love on Planet Porcelain

This is an illustration for The Drabblecast that should be coming up in the next couple of days, for a story by Cat Rambo.  (which you can now read here)
Here are some of the search terms I used on Google to gather reference for the story: milagros, porcelain doll parts, the Wailing Wall, Ankor Wat, artificial limbs. 

I'm glad that Google exists and that my local library has an automated checkout system. It saves a lot of strange looks from librarians.
