Munny Funny

Well on my trip to Nottingham I also found one of these little beauties. I really want to get into painting these guys, I want to paint a load then sell them, start generating an income for my self instead of having to work in a pub kitchen my whole life. Can you tell I'm getting a bit sick of it. I think I will probably use the television to go with the Munny it self. I really need to think hard and plan hard if he is going to look great. Need some decent paints and I need to learn how to paint them to a good finish. I heard matt sealant is good, but any advice would be great. Might get an old toy from a charity shop to practice on first.

Slashslash Notts

Well a few weeks ago now I went to an event in Nottingham where I was a live Illustrator. 
The music wasn't really to my taste, however it was great to see what Illustrators and other freelance artists and creatives were up to out side on Lincoln. 
I made some badges and fridge magnets to sell (pics above, I made them in 4 different colours). I only sold 2 badges in the end but one of them was to this person on the till at Page 45. I think he was called Tom, but it turned out he liked it and is going to keep in contact with me if I have any comics or anything that I draw. This is a very useful link, and even tho I didn't sell much, I have two contacts now so if I do get going on this Illustration career I can get them to spread the word.
