Hi there bloggies, I don’t know what to say. Even as this year draws to a close it comes up with more crap. I mean don’t get me wrong I’m not surprised at all that the UK is going back into lockdown it’s just that it feels very dejavu and this time there’s not the warm sun and blue skies to warm our hearts. But Boris has said come Spring it will all be ok – he must know what he’s doing that man (please don’t take that last comment seriously lol).
But the good thing is last month there was more than a few posts from me. As it was Inktober there were more than a few drawings flying about and I’ll list a few of the good ones here:
Inktober 2020 – Day 20 Sleep
Inktober 2020 – Day 20 Chef
Inktober 2020 – Day 15 Outpost
Also in the past month there’s been more going on in the 100 ways to die in space series including:
100 Ways to Die in Space – # 5 Low Air Pressure
100 Ways to Die in Space – # 6 High Atmospheric Pressure
100 Ways to Die in Space – # 7 Collisions
I’m quite pleased with this series as every last like bit of every post is my own work – the cartoon the lot. So if you’ve not seen them before do have a look. I know it’s a bit macabre and not to everyone’s taste but hopefully it’s giving some small amusement.
Whatever you’re all doing out there wherever you are, keep safe and look after yourselves and those around you. I think it’s fair to say this is a marathon not a sprint and we need to treat it as such. I’ll see you same time next month!
What have you been up to?
I hope you all out there keep safe and keep writing and smiling!

I’ve been trying to hone my sketching skills, having a sketching workbook has helped a lot to give me ideas and methods and techniques… I enjoyed this one, for some reason a bit of a pain getting the circle the right size and position but the shading seems to blend well. It’s amazing that a … Continue reading Simon’s Sketch Work – 3D Ball
