This one has lain dormant for several months. Sometimes it is incredibly hard to get back into it again after all the interruptions which occur generally, but having loosened up with fireside drawings I am now getting back into it. The preparatory sketch for this, Before there were Saturdays, was finished on the 17th of this month which helped a lot. That took some time to do, but it was worth it as I have a much clearer picture in my head of where I am going with the main drawing.
THE WEEKLY: BINKY McKEE AND ME
Welcome to my blog where I share my work as an illustrator as well as occasional events from the week.
I illustrate under the pen-name of Binky McKee, McKee being my mother's maiden name. Binky was the name of every single cat my great-grandmother owned - about 40 of them during her life! It seemed natural to devote my more nurturing, colourful, story-telling work to the female side of the family, whilst practicing my art work under my paternal name.
Currently I am working on illustrating a children's book, and of course I can't resist an Instagram challenge such as Folktale Week or Inktober!
I hope you enjoy the work!
