Hi everyone, so my work for Warner Brothers/Alex Byrne finished earlier than expected so I had some free time for a change. Decided to enter this months Gnomon Competition.

The theme for this month is Dreamscape, my idea for this was that an Emperor or a King of some kind is looking on at his dream palace being built :)

Architecture is one of my weakest points, so the only way to improve it is to make myself do paintings like this. Doing the Gnomon competition is always cool as it challenges you to do something thats out of your comfort zone, well atleast for me, so I learned a lot from this :)

First Page double spread

Front and Back cover

Fourth page double spread

Copyright and title page

These are my 'Final' Macmillan children's book spreads, my book is an adaption of 'The Queens Bee' by the Brothers Grimm. I say 'Final' as I will most likely go back and improve these once I have the time before the final hand in.

I had to get a lot of work done recently as I will be going down to London on Wednesday to official start working with Alexandre Byrne, the oscar winning costume designer. Should be a great learning experience :)

Just finishing up my dissertation now as well, im on my 7th draft, arghhh. Definitely do not want to go into writing lol

Timeline illustration I did for my facebook page that I posted recently.

I took down some of my macmillan stuff, shouldn't really be showing it until after judging I guess haha Its progressing well, Ive finished my final dummy book, and Im just about to finish my front and back cover final illustration. I will be then doing 3 of the spreads for the book. Hoping to finish it by the end of the week, since I have a lot of work to do and a massive opportunity just came up so trying to keep up with my self imposed schedule :)

Im using my twitter page a lot more now (well at least for me lol) never really understood the program but my friend Nicky said its good for making contacts and after giving it more of a chance that seems to be true.

My twitter name is @scriar if anyones interested.
