One for Sorrow; Two for joy

Hi everyone,

I know, it has been a while. I have been dedicating the recent months to gathering contact details, tidying up and updating my portfolio before distributing to agents & publishers.

I am currently very much in the zone, having learned basic clothes making (I’ve made a few skirts recently!) I am now very much back into illustrating and enjoying it. I am looking forward to showing you my latest sketches and edits to older work, but I have only recently returned from a holiday and am yet to set up the scanner and printer. I have, however, got a few images ready from another recent story that I have put together “One for sorrow; Two for joy” which focuses on the superstitions surrounding a single magpie versus magpies in pairs.

Recent responses from agents and publishers have suggested that they would like to know the full story, rather than just see samples of my work, so I have started dedicating my time to drawing up fuller stories as opposed to just samples.

Once I have all of the equipment set up, I shall be posting up my edits to old imagery, whilst introducing imagery associated with Tiger coming into the life on his family amongst other things.

Meanwhile, enjoy my new Magpie character and enjoy yourselves in whatever you do!

Take care

Rachel
