What's new?

I posted the finished version of The Junk Shop on FaceBook but here it is as well! It was inspired by a visit to a magnificent junk shop in Walcha. It was a rainy, cold day and the huge old shop was gloomy. It was chock a block full of stuff.

The little girls in this picture have wandered off the street from the picture in my previous post and are now playing hide and seek.

Other news is that I have just had official word that my application to do an M Phil in Creative Practice at UNE has been successful. I will be writing a novel/novella using Jenny Wren, the dolls' dressmaker from Our Mutual Friend, as the main character. The genre? Crime!

So lots of writing and lots of drawing coming in the next year. I will try to keep progress documented on my blog!
