lyra and the golden campass

The whole point of switching to the new blog style a few months ago was to be more bloggy, well I’m coming up for some air and wanted to share my excitement..

I saw the preview for “The Golden Compass” yesterday and was reminded again how excited I am to see the movie! What is even more wonderful is that it looks like, from what I can see in the preview, that the movie is sticking very close to the book, the whole “Dark Materials” series is a beautiful, scary, thrilling and intelligent set of books and it was refreshing to see a set of young adult/childrens books, that strive to be thought provoking and challenge children and our views of the world.


Plus seriously, the polar bear, oh wow. The stuff dreams are made of.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
