Thank you Illustration Friday for one of my favourite drawing subjects. I'm not sure why, but these two are on a beach and looking terrified. Is it the fear of water getting into their mechanical parts?
Meanwhile... I'm back in another phase of theatre-making. We're redoing the show we made last year in preparation for a national tour. I've tried for so long to choose one thing or the other - arty design-ey stuff or arty theatre stuff - and realise there's actually no point in trying. I love them both. Making theatre gets me out of my head and away from my computer. Drawing and designing gets me into a place of quiet satisfaction. It's a funny mixed kind of career, but I'm finally beginning to make peace with it (unlike the robots).

Why choose? It sounds like they are both very satisfying in different ways! I say do it all!! :)

Love the expressions on the robots and their unlikely situation! Adorable!

Thank you! And yes, you're right, I should just do it all and stop worrying. I think it's an old ingrained fear of being a 'jack of all trades, master of none' kind of person. Time to get over it!
