And trooper though she is, it's a shared responsibility, so get down on the floor, Dad, and give me twenty, it's not your perineum got stitches in it. That is all.
But there's also been a bit of read, read, read from the birthday book pile that complements perfectly the bottles of single malt scotch.

From initial brief I did 3 concept sketches for the cover: one focussing on different communication media in our everyday environment; another on different personal stories, every building being a book with a variety of chapters within.
Think my favourite little bit was adding a TV thrown out of a window! Pretty sure the band had an added expense on the credit card after that one. (The third concept seemed like a good idea at the time, but seems to fall apart in trying to write it, so let's edit that paragraph!)
A great brief and Ric was a pleasure to work with!

Sixty Artists! Sixty Gods! Artists including Sonia Kretschmar, Amelia Kelso, Andrea Innocent, Ben Johnson and precisely 56 others have each hand painted, sewn or sculpted 60 identical dolls, painstakingly sourced by curator Daniel Atkinson (well, ok, found grouped together on the reject table of a $2 shop) The above is my contribution, Caffeine Powered Luchador 'El Capitán Café'
The March Issue of Child Magazine features a story about the rise and rise of the designer playground. No more burning hands on the monkey bars, the new playground is international, interesting, interactive and for sure intersomethingorotherelse.

Have dug up some precious metal the last couple of days, a very nice way to start the year! Got the latest 3x3 Illustration Annual from New York, and though I knew I made the cut, didn't know that the Long Story Shorts Series received a Bronze.

Just did a fun illo for Oliver Towning at Boss Magazine for the article 3 Wheel Drive.
January's Child Magazine featured an article on the trials, tribulations and ultimate benefits a bit of sport in childhood can bestow. (I'm not speaking from experience here, I hasten to add!)

From the wonderful Affirm Press comes The Last Thread, Michael Sala’s fascinating life in fiction. From his early years in the Netherlands to growing up in Australia during the 1980s, Michaelis recalls the secret surrounding his estranged Greek father and how scandalous events from the past fractured his family.
Affirms commitment to new fiction continues with this latest book. It's an inspiring often disturbing book and its challenge to me was to try and bring out the qualities of loneliness, sorrow, hope and ultimate strength of Michael's story.
'Good fences make good neighbours' said Robert Frost. He was being ironic, of course, and this article in Novembers 'Child' magazine supports that stance. Too many fences it seems, cut us off from each other, the world around us and a terrific view just over the rise.
