Paralysed By Too Much To Do

Why is that always the way? Need to get moving... So, this is what I'm going to be juggling over the next few months:

- Wildlife Signs for Meanwhile Gardens
- Evolution: What If? Short Project. Between five and ten illustrations.
- Prometheus: Storyboard and animation.
- The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat. Adapting one or two chapters.
- Day In Day Out. Developing own narrative into a comic/graphic novel format.
- Macmillan. At least four final spreads plus pencils for all and book jacket.
- Degree show website.
- Morbidlemon re-design.

Definitely drawing the line now for work I'm taking on. I think I already took too much on, but I can't go back on it now. Wish me luck!

Scenery Painting


Was pleased with how this was coming along, inspired by Greek vases and the Cabinet of Dr Caligari, for my Prometheus animation. It's gouache. Just incase you didn't know, gouache doesn't taste nice even though I think it's yummy. I should stop biting my nails.

Also, since I hadn't posted it yet here's the storyboards I'd been working with so far. The brown one is the most recent [and most focused]. I suppose they might help give the above painting a bit more context.

It has been a rough week.
