I have just finished illustrating Salamano, Mersault's old callous neighbour in The Outsider, who is transformed into a delicate, melancholy soul when his poor mistreated dog finally runs away from him.

* Note: Sorry for re-posting this so many times...there was a very irksome spelling mistake in the title and I just had to get rid of it!
I am sad to say that I missed yesterday's deadline for the Folio Society's illustration competition for Albert Camus' The Outsider. But here is a quick illustration I've put together, post-deadline, in response to Mr Mersault's prison experience, upon remembering the familiar sights and sounds of Algiers from outside his cell.
I am mainly just pleased that I've managed to put a person into one of my pictures that isn't a silhouette or a tracing, at last! This guy was inspired by Petra Borner's lovely figure drawing. She may have saved me from an on-going struggle.

After a couple of truly unsuccessful attempts, here is the image I've clawed together for my Fringe poster submission! I'm up against some pretty stiff competition and there are more than a couple of niggling tweaks I need to do, so I don't know if this will cut it, but it should add some vibrancy to my portfolio at least!
I will update you all on my New Year adventures in Scotland very soon...I am eagerly awaiting the collection of my photos tomorrow (though I fear they may be reflective of the grey, dreary January weather) and of course, the hand-in of the dreaded dissertation (I can recommend these guys for binding, they seem to have done a splendid job). In the meantime, I have a scary amount of work to do and a kettle to boil!
Happy New Year!
