13 February, 2009

Quick update, quite busy at the moment with several projects nearing their deadlines, including The Cunning Little Vixen. One of my clients for this year went into recession so that project was put on hold, I'm looking into uploading the artwork I've already done for them. No other artwork to post either which is strange because I've done nothing by draw since the last update but can't post anything! :P

If your interested in hiring me to do some work for you, I will have time after March, right now there's alittle too much on my plate.
