Now that I have a new Animation Works website/blog I will probably stop posting on Blogspot. I hate writing this, but the fact is, I am spending way too much time on social media: wordpress, blogger, facebook, youtube, twitter, and so on (and with most of them I have two accounts). I did some quick math the other day and realized I'm now spending a full day a week (and probably a little bit more) on these sites. Too much of a good thing, obviously ...
Anyway, some of them have to go and I'm afraid this blog is one of them. Which is a bit sad, because I love blogging. I love the whole network of artists, love the pictures and stories which are more personal than quick facebook posts or tweets. But I have a blog with my new site now, and it makes sense to stick with that one.
So, to my followers and fellow bloggers: thanks so much for all the fun and inspiration and your positive comments! It's been a real boost for my confidence, and my artistic development. I have bookmarked all your blogs so at least I can visit from time to time and see all your wonderful work.
Hope to see you again, on my new AW blog, Twitter, LinkedIn or Vimeo, because those are the media which I will continue to use. The Facebook pages for Book of Aderyn and Animationworks will also stay online, and I will check them regularly.
All the best to you Bloggers, keep up the great posts, and keep in touch!

I'm working on a short comic strip. It's harder than I thought it would be, but I'm also really enjoying it, because there are monkeys in it! These are the first designs, made up of my three favourite monkeys: he's got the build of a chimp, the beard of a gibbon, and the colour of an orangutan.

Today I received some 'adventure packs' from Malmberg, with some of my old and new illustrations of Naut, Meander and Brandaan. I made some snapshots of all the books and printed stuff thrown together.
Books, brochures, holiday magazine, DVD-rom, Planet earth DVD, pagemarkers, rulers and stickers. School doesn't sound so bad anymore :)

Ezekiel's vision of dead bones coming back to life. At first I thought of some more poetic way of visualizing it, but the image is so powerful I decided to just draw it like it's written.
