I’m renowned for wasting my bank holiday’s. I usually make a long list of things I’m going to get done and then spend the majority of the bank holiday napping and eating way to much. This bank holiday I didn’t write a list and I ended up doing LOADS! Here’s what I got up to (shock horror – it doesn’t involve eating chocolate!) Friday: Friday … Continue reading Easter Shenanigans
I don’t usually go in for Valentine shenanigans. My husband and I have probably exchanged Valentine cards three times in the whole time we’ve been together. In the past I’ve looked at Valentine as being a commercial affair that I’ll happily steer clear of. However, this year a friend of mine invited me to a “Galentines” party.

If anyone out there has a spare £200 (I can contribute the £2.49) and feels like treating me then here’s the link….. Zombie Peepshow Etsy Shop. Seeing these inspired … Continue reading Those Unicorn Shoes….
Waaaah, my first sketchnote diary! So, I don’t think I’m doing sketchnoting”properly” (but when do I ever do anything the way I should?!). This little page of doodles took me way longer than it should have. It took three attempts to get the layout how I wanted and several goes at getting Tilly to actually look like a rabbit. I think this is partly to … Continue reading My first sketchnote diary
It’s been a while. Mainly because I’ve been a bit stuck on what to write about. I started the blog thinking I would do reviews, but I realised reviews aren’t really for me. I hate saying I didn’t like a comic. I know how much work goes in to putting a comic together, so I wouldn’t want to say bad things about someone’s work just … Continue reading A little update and a bit about Thought Bubble 2015.
Title: Jem and The Holograms Writer: Kelly Thompson, Illustrator: Sophie Campbell, Colours: M. Victoria Robado, Letters: Shawn Lee, Edits: John Barber, Publisher: IDW. Ok, I’m going to get this out the way now. Jem is truly outrageous, truly, truly, truly outrageous. Right I promise not to say it again during this post (but, if you are in your mid-thirties like me you will have a certain theme tune in you head for the rest of the … Continue reading Jem and The Holograms
