Roller Derby. Again. I know.


Yes yes, I know, more roller derby. But this was a request! One of THREE requests I have had lately for illustrations for people. I've never had to draw something for anyone before and it's kind of daunting, but exciting. This one will (hopefully) be printed(!) in Lead Jammer Magazine #3 as one of my rookies is writing an article about Fresh Meat for it.

But now my back is killing me. My posture while drawing at the computer is awful, but I can't seem to draw any other way. I need to have my left hand on Ctrl + Z and the tablet has to be in front of me as there isn't any room on the desk for it to be anywhere else. Basically a bigger desk might solve this problem, but alas I have no room. I just need to SIT BETTER.

A Song of LIKE, DRAGONS AND FIRE AND BLOOD.


(Spoilers for A Song of ice and Fire)

So like, whatever Meereenese.

Getting tired of Dany being stuck in Essos and not claiming her throne. Okay you freed the slaves, okay you want to keep them all safe.. but like.. Westeros! Yours for the taking! THREE DRAGONS! Hhhnnngggg.

And forgive Jorah already. I love you to bits Daenerys but poor Jorah is having a tough time too.

Dragons & Cars


So, on Saturday night I saw an ad on TV for interns at Red Bull Racing in Milton Keynes, me being the F1 nut that I am ran to the internet and looked up what I had to do. Basically I had to pass this convoluted online test and be within the top 20% to move forward into the next round. I passed!

I was then given an application form which was just a blank page PDF and was told to "fill this space with the reason you deserve this internship. Be as creative as you want, there are no limits here." So I draw me and a dragon. As you do. If I make it through this round the top 100 will have to do a video interview about themselves (I know, right, terrifying), then the top 50 after that get to go to the factory in Milton Keynes for real interviews. I probably won't get any further than this drawing, but hey at least I tried.


Also on Wednesday I'm going to pick up my new car! It's a 52 plate 206 and it's lovely. It has all mod cons like power steering and remote central locking! I am very excited to hopefully get a car that will do above 60mph.
