Pride and Joy
Saturday night, wearing his new suit, my eldest Son Jake attended his first presentation with the Ely Tigers Rugby Club. He has been with them for just half a season and picked up the 'Most improved player' trophy and plaque.
The design for the background of this sketch was taken from his snazzy pinstripe suit.
Every now and then I get an idea for a story pop into my head like a lightning bolt. I am currently working at making one of these 'bolts' into an illustrated childrens book...A long process that I am in no hurry with and enjoying very much.
The sketch here shows my recent idea, I thought if I scribbled a rough down on paper I may be able to make something of it some time in the future, detailed notes of storyline and characters are on the facing page for reference when that time comes.
