"Meet my agent..."

Travelling along M62 this afternoon taking AJ back to Warrington, and stopped by at the Borders outside of Leeds for a coffee break. Little fella starts bumping his gums with the staff in the childrens book section and before you know it he's snaffled me a new gig! I'll be doing signings there in a fortnight, Mothers Day to be precise, but it wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for Mini Me chewing the fat!

Book signings are great fun- put you one on one with your audience, like the storytelling workshops. Too many people work in animation and the like who produce things for kids without actually ever interacting with them.








Here's HOWL Vs HORN, by the way, featuring Jack Russell, a rockabilly wolf boy getting blown away. The palette for all the BITENECK BEATNIKS paintings is, as you can probably already see, set upon bold primary colours, predominantly reds, greens and blues. Don't want anyone to think that Badablingthing is just going to be a jazz-fest, so I'll be putting up images of other works in progress, including, hopefully, some design work from FRANKENSTEIN'S CAT when appropriate.

As ever, all feedback is welcome- if I'm showing the right kind of goodies here then it's good to know. Let me know what you want to see, and so long as it doesn't breech decency laws then I'll see what I can do.

I like the green one's best... dunno why but they seem to work best for me.

BTW I hope your boy get his 10% for getting you the gig!

How about a Jazz Mag fest .

Perhaps not.

AJ will get an extra knob of butter on his crumpet in the morning- I can't stretch beyond that!

Shall dig out a photo of the FRANKENSTEIN'S CAT maquette, Mr G.

Sheriff- bad monkey!

Just a heads up...Did you know that Jack Russell is a werewolf character belonging to Marvel comics? I hear they like law suits.

Anony-who? Do tell!

Marvel doesn't really concern me at this stage in the game, nor would it if the BB's got published. I'm not short of names for characters. Let's call him Lou Pine instead, eh?

Bada Bling!
