Happy eat loads of chocolate and sweets weekend! I hope you're enjoying this wonderful 4 days grace from work and have wedged yourself firmly on the couch surrounded by heaps of chocolate!
I just wanted to quickly update you on a few bits I've managed to work on this week and uploaded to the gallery. I think it's safe to say that I have well and truly found myself obsessed with sailor Moon again. So surrender yourself to the fact that sketches of her will be featuring a lot more on my Instagram page :D
I found a pretty neat inking app which works a whole lot better than the tools available in Sketchbook Pro -- something that I've been looking for to give my fashion-focused illustrations a bit more of an editorial feel.

I'm beyond overwhelmed by the amount of love you guys have been giving me lately towards my art work. It really is a massive confidence boost to keep pushing on through those tiredness barriers and post more work. I literally pulled an 80 hour week last week with my day job, and working on the blog/illustrations whenever I can.
I'll soon be opening the store here on That Gent -- with a whole range of things like prints, stickers, tote bags, etc. As well as opening up sponsorship/advertising spots. I've helped a few people with blog headers, badges, etc - so if that's something you feel you'd like me to offer too, let me know :)
Now, I was thinking what better way to open the store but with a competition! The only thing is I'm not sure what to offer. I was thinking a print of one of my illustrations, so I'd be really grateful if you could head over to my Sketchbook and Illustrations pages, take a look, and let me know which one you think I should.
Let me know in the comments below, tweet me or comment on Instragram which one you think I should use. I'll be using one of those rafflecopter things (I think, is there anything better?) for the giveaway, but I'll also be putting all of you who have helped me choose the print into your own prize draw for a chance to win a print of my choice. Confused? Me too! There will be 5 of those to give away, so please spread the word :)
