Hello out there, I am stuck in a puppy induced inactivity zone. Monty is doing very well and has settled in nicely, but oh my he is proving to be a major distraction because how can I get any work done when I have a puppy. A gloriously soft, snuggly wriggly, chewy PUPPY. Yesterday I […]

April 20, 2014

Hello Internet, I hope that you are all having a glorious celebration of chocolate day.

This week has been a busy week in the studio compared to last week when I did not have the time to make anything. I have been preparing some cups for a couple of possibly drunken cartoonists to decorate while they are on their whisky tour, you can follow the progress of the intrepid whisky […]

Good Morning Mudslingers, it has started to chill down a bit here and as I type this with cold fingers, I think that t-shirt only mornings are now a thing of the past. I haven’t actually been in the studio to make any work of substance this week, as my timetable has been full of […]
