Take On Me

I have decided to make something else relating to A-ha's Take On Me comic book imagery.....

I can't say any more than that, as I am mulling over all the ideas, but aside from attempting to rotoscope a video for Coldplay's Lost competition, which will now star my son, I am trying to work out how to create a very special sketchbook for artists, illustrators, animators, students and musicians, and anyone who likes the Take On Me video.....

Like those doodle books you get for kids in galleries, only this one will be better ;-)

Well OK, the idea for a Take On Me style comic sketchbook is mine, I concocted it, and if anyone tries to plagiarise that idea, I will send Morten round to bore them with his theories of Nothing..........

Basically it's an excuse to self publish my own sketchbook.

I've just gotta work out how to get away with it.... ;-)

It's all been very quiet for a few months... I finally got my website up. You can visit it here:

I've been focussed more on my a-n blog, as it keeps being publicised online and in their magazine, which is all very helpful, as I've had no luck finding any opportunities, either as an artist, illustrator, or merely a part time job to support my practice.

I've had to find a babysitter in case I need one, as I've been missing some opportunities due to lack of childcare (and the fact that some employers are not open to family friendly working practices)

I can work from 9.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. Possibly till 5.00p.m. but only part time. No evenings or weekends, as there is no childcare for that time.

Meanwhile, I've been doing the odd bit of work, nothing special, just ticking over really while I figure out the best career plan.
