I can't believe it's already April and I've shamefully left my blog standing still since New Year.
There have been a variety of reasons for this, simply put I've been balancing too many things all at once. Some of it has been work deadlines - illustrating the 4th Charlie Bone book, a couple of advertising jobs, and the beginnings of a new picturebook. But also I was in New York during February for the SCBWI Conference and blitzing publishers, the preparation and follow-up of which shifted me out of sync considerably. SCBWI has kept me very busy too.
But anyway, less excuses, time to pick up the thread.
