New Portfolio Bits...

I am in the midst of several looming, scary deadline at the moment. To keep me sane whilst things save/ are drying/ uploading, I've been doing bits for my portfolio.

The Prettiest Kitty in Paris

The background of this picture is, in another colourway, for my next picture book. I couldn't help using it and tweaking it for these lovely kitties.

Attention! C'est une patinoire!

Translation: WATCH OUT! It's an ice rink!

When I was in Paris before Christmas, Jemma and I went to have a breakfast picnic in a beautiful little park near to where she used to teach. It was a very bright, but cold and icy morning and we enjoyed eating out croissants on a bench by the duck pond. All of a sudden a troupe of nursery school children marched down the path and the above happened. I felt a bit sorry for their teacher - I think he had his hands full with his chic, clumsy little pupils!

I sketched the scene in my sketchbook when we were having a warm up hot chocolate in a cafe nearby. I couldn't resist colouring it in.
