I'm not going to sleep!

Hi There!

I know what you're thinking... more updates? From JoBo? What the HECK?

Well it is mostly the same thing, but I've been experimenting/practicing a bit with my pen and watercolour to really try and get a feel for this new book I'm going to be making and I gotta say, I've never enjoyed a project so much (though its early days, lets give me a few months and see how I'm doing)

So yeah! Here's some more Ginger practice. 

Been doing a bit of reading up about line work too, I'm not sure if it's showing through yet, but I'm feeling positive!

Not sure how well the type is going with this, but hey, it's just a first test. A bit o tweeking here and a bit more practice and it could work out. 

Hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

Give Me Ya Treasure!


Oooo. Here's more of Ginger, she's been coming along nicely. These are just some little character sketches I did to practice using pen again and to test some colours.
Did I ever mention that she has the best boots/slippers ever?
I want them.

Forgive the poor quality of my scanner. We had a bit of a disagreement about these images. 

Also, she kind of lives in a little fantasy world so you might see her getting more and more outrageous. I don't know yet. Either way, her boots are talking.

So!! Hello!

I've been distracted again! Sorry about that. 
Here's some sketchy character designs I've been doing of late:

Ginger! I like her. She's a nut case. =P (And i want a pair of crocodile booties!) 

Also I recently reread Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes and LOVED every second of it. A real blast from the childhood. You should reread it too. Its great!

More stuff soon I promise, though my current project has got to stay hush hush for now so maybe not.
