Christmas Eve!

Ok, I’ll be honest: I didn’t exactly have a Plan for the denouement of this little Advent illustration caper – I thought I’d just let it evolve “organically” (…) over the course of the 24 days. That way, I could … Continue reading

Nice try, sunshine…

Left alone in the capable flippers of the short-notice babysitter (i.e. Grandma…) – while his parents brave the crowds of last-minute Christmas shoppers (please, humour me…) – this enterprising chick seizes his opportunity for a little seasonal wool-pulling, of the ‘over-the-eyes’ … Continue reading

A post-lunch ‘constitutional’…

And…they’re off!!

Trees? In the Antarctic?

Ok, ok… I know there are no Norwegian spruces in the Antarctic, but I thought I’d air-drop one in for advent so those penguins have something to wrestle into festive shape in time for Christmas. This penguin seems to have had … Continue reading

Just keep moving…

Why on earth did I venture into an illustration-a-day enterprise at this time of year? And with deadlines crashing all round me?!! Eejit. Anywho… Here is my little offering for today – mainly Antarctic, as opposed to especially festive: it … Continue reading
