Quick update!

It has been a long time since I have updated this space! This is due to one huge move that has happened this month: I became an intern at King Bee Animation studio, as an illustrator and partial animator. I've been working on future pitches, mainly character design and background design - images I can't exactly share since the pitches are not 'live' yet. As I am working in-house, full-time, I have had not much time to myself to have consistent updates, and my project schedule has unfortunately become rather messy.

However!- I am still drawing and sketching as much as I can; I'm already drawing about 7 hours a day, so my casual drawing is limited to weekends or free evenings. Weekly Jess is the one ongoing project I am determined to not fall short of.

Here are a few things I've worked on these past few weeks:

 A painting of the Northern Sunset
(Art Rage)

Ghost Cats and a Night-Witch
Character concept for a graphic novel

Studies at the British Museum
African Mask (markers); Greek Statue (pen); Egyptian Skeleton (pencil)

I have 3 more weeks at the studio, and then I will be able to resume my personal projects (they are definitely piling up) as well as finding a stable paying job!


Weekend museum drawing is becoming a thing!

Studies at the Hunterian Museum

What an absolutely glorious place this was!

is a comic-based series about funny and silly things I witness. I haven’t made a comic in years. The ones I have made were sadly damaged by heavy rain, and I no longer have the originals. I’m sure no one wants to see those oldies-but-not-goldies anyway!

Here’s the first strip - CANDY - based on a scene I saw almost a decade ago. Please give it a read and follow for more! WEEKLY JESS updates Tuesdays.

#1 - CANDY

I saw this girl when I was about 15, in the supermarket. I couldn’t help but giggle, and the story has stuck with me since. She was only about 5 or 6! Very cute. Explaining condoms is not hard to do, but explaining why they were flavoured - hmm!
