A short note before I start my day...

25th September- 1 full colour sketch, 2 character studies and the beginning of a picture book text.

Before I go and drown my museli and down my tea, I'd just like to tell you how excited I am to be writing. I've written only one picture book text before and it made mud look good, but... I do love it! Doing it, I mean! I'm at the stage where the outcome is really irrelevant at the moment, and I'm taking care to treasure that lack of pressure.

Currently, I've been assigned two fantastic texts by my publisher and they're running back to back. Being a new illustrator, they've taken a great leap of faith with me and I'm hugely greatful. I'm learning an awful lot about the process of making a book and the challenge of interpreting and bringing to life another's words. It's been an amazing journey so far, but I think ultimately, however secretly, most illustrators also harbour a deep and dark wish to write and illustrate. It's the holy grail. I'm going to put it all out on the line here (promise not to laugh!) and say that my really huge apple and custard pie-in-the-sky daydream is to one day write a book that Stephen Fry would do the audio for!

At the moment though, I am more than content to sit here typing like a monkey and grinning with glea!
