So thanks to Twitter, which ive now been on for a little while (thanks for the reminder simon - twitter.com/olifrape) ive been checking in on numerous links and interesting web nuggets. I stumbled across the site of Keri Smith. She has a great section of helpful words and tasks to both remind us illustrators why we do what we do and a variety of ways to help with those ever painful moments of creative block and crippling self doubt. I was proper indulging in some of that stuff and her lovely thoughts and a little word or two from a couple of the closest amigos somehow kicked me back into gear. And thus i produced this piece. Perhaps just cathartic for me but a reminder for everyone. Gona get it DONE.
Now to enjoy the remainder of the bank holiday. For whatever reason you should check keri out at
