Stop Universal Credit!!

New notebook

It's hard to keep a sketch a day going whilst having to cope with pesky bills, and thoughts turn to "what on earth do I get Mum for Mother's Day?"
My daffodil Mother's Day card was the best in class, but this year, I've gone for Coronation Street. Mum likes Corrie. When asked who her favourite character is, she couldn't think of any, so I've gone for the lovely Mary Cole.

Coronation St Mother's Day card

I was reminded of Take On Me again, when a fellow fan shared some images from the making of the video, and I decided randomly to illustrate David Macklovitch of Chromeo as if Chromeo did some kind of funky version of Take On Me (and accidentally got into the comic!). He likes it, and whilst I'm trying to get Cloudbusting published, I'm thinking of ideas for what to do next. 
People have been sharing various anime / comic illustrations, and I'm the only illustrator I know of that specialises in illustrating in the style of the Take On Me video, so who better to make a storyboard for a Chromeo video for one of their new album tracks?? ;-)

Head Over Heels

Always a nightmare when this happens!

I haven't forgotten Pee!

Daily sketches are becoming editorial!

#UniversalCredit protest

There was a protest organised in London to stop and scrap the financially neglectful and abusive Universal Credit regime, but due to #TheBeastFromTheEast, it's been cancelled. 
However, it's still very important, as an illustrator and an unpaid carer, to safeguard against destitution.
