Well, the Droids are done – although I will be updating my Tumblr blog over the next few weeks as I reblog and rework some of my favourite robots – so it’s time for something new.
Today I wrote my first post over at Asteroid Belt Blues, my new Tumblr. I’ll be posting illustrations, sketches and some writing here, expanding on some of the spaceship and science fiction drawings I’ve been doing alongside my droids. I want to create a believable world, a near future where the asteroid belt and outer planets are the new frontier.
I also have another project I’m beginning, not an illustrative one, so I won’t really be posting updates. Today I’ve begun a children’s story, which will hopefully become a book. I’ve had some ideas swirling around my head for a while, so I thought it was time I did something about it. I’m giving myself a year to write and illustrate it, and to submit it to publishers. I have no idea if that’s a realistic time frame, but I’ll give it a go.
Should be fun.
