Lo, I am returned.

Lo, dear readers, rejoice, for I am returned once again to illuminate and rejuvenate these, the dark and dank recesses of the internet.

My computer decided to bite the dust about a month ago, hence my absence both from making drawings and posting said drawings here, for your immediate entertainment.

It's taken days of arduous travel, to and fro, from service centre to service centre, but I can finally boldly claim that my computer is now up and running at a robust 25% of it's former glory. There are still some kinks to iron out, but I am, for the most part, back.

It's been a great summer thus far, with my lovely Girlfriend-Girl down from her perch atop our magnificent brown island. Christmas was fun and eventful. I dressed up as a certain portly elf for the children, and also got some pretty rule-ass gifts myself.

Um, what else? Work's kinda been on a halt for a while, but I'm expecting that to turn around very soon. I'll keep you posted.

Also I went on a holiday somewhere in there too.

Anyway, this is a journal for my drawings, so here are some I've been hoarding for a while.



Started drawing at much higher resolutions, hence the cleaner line-work.

Did this for Lucy's Christmas present. It's around A3 size in a nice curvy wooden frame. Click for a larger version.

Just mucking about.




What a cool mo-fo.




I figured I'd have to get this out of the way some day, so here it is.




A couple of old photos of my Mum as a kid that I scanned in and restored.




Glamour!


So yeah, that's about it. It's good to be back. I find that I feel most secure when I'm in some kind of a routine, and after a year of keeping this journal, and a month or so without it, I've realised that it's something I definitely want to continue doing. Plus, I'm a glutton for approval, so it's always nice to have a forum for people to tell me how great I am. Keep it up, friends!

Love,

--Joe.
