This time last week I mentioned that I thought I'd deleted all my files by accident. Yesterday, I booted up my tablet to work on my latest sketch to find that all my art files weren't there, again! I now think that maybe I hadn't deleted them but my tablet is corrupting files and automatically binning them. All that time and effort - lost.

Needless to say I'm a little more than peeved - but it is what it is and I think I'm angry at myself as well for not backing up my PSDs at least on to my Google Drive. In a positive way, it's certainly making the decision to upgrade to an iPad Pro + Pencil in November a lot easier.

Determined to be undefeated by this little set back, again, I started on some pieces that at the moment look rather out of place when you compare them the usual anime-themed stuff I usually do. I love those cutesy "Animals of Farthing Wood" designs that you see, well, all over the place at the moment and thought I'd come up with some of my own designs.  I'm currently working on 'Bramble' the hedgehog, which I'm actually pretty smitten with! :D

I'm hoping to get the prints up on my Etsy store soon, along with a couple more designs I should have completed by then and a whole load of my "fashion-esq" pieces if I can salvage any.

I've also been wondering if you guys think I should pop my rough sketches on their, too? I love rough-sketch artwork and don't really see a lot of it around. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below or over on Twitter.
