Way back when, I wanted to be a children's book illustrator. I created the artwork for a book called Counting Sheep. The premise being how humans count sheep jumping over a fence to help fall asleep.

In the book there were three sheep, one hero and his two less-than-helpful cohorts. The story illustrated the various ways the three sheep in the story would concoct to get over the omnipotent fence,usually with catastrophic consequences.

I completed a dozen of these boards, each a double-page spread for the book, including back and front cover. When I moved to the USA I only kept my favourite board and ditched the rest. The above spread is all that remains of the book.

I never finished writing the copy and never pursued getting it published. Of course now, it has never been easier to self publish. If only I still had the artwork…

Let me introduce myself. I am a designer, artist, video producer, blogger, vlogger, and musician. I work in digital media creating corporate marketing and advertising content for the web, social media, trade shows, digital signage, interactive demonstrations and so on.

As you can imagine, my work is somewhat limited to fit within my clients vision. It has to fit within 'brand guidelines' and 'corporate style guides'. Quite often there is little that could be considered 'artistic' about commercial art. As an artist, this is the internal conflict I struggle with.

Anyway, I have my business website for showing my corporate portfolio. And I have a blog for ramblings and research and other related artworks. But what I have not had was a place to host the initial roughs, the raw sketches from which the finished projects are hewn. Or not. Some sketches never lead to anything. And that's the beautiful thing about keeping a sketchbook. It's an outlet for me, creatively. And great for building a library of ideas and techniques.

Thus I ended up here, a place to host my rough pencil sketches. Hopefully it will encourage me to sketch often and scan, upload and post them here.
