mod's ugly face

Ho hum another day OH LOOK a present from the postie, what joy awaits?

Probably another rejection letter from a publishing companwait a minute

I know that handwriting, and that fish.

OH BOY OH GEE

I MEAN NO BIG DEAL just Chris Riddell the world famous illustrator and current Children’s Laureate responding to me sending him a copy of my doofy comic with a bunch of pictures and a one-off drawing and letter on really nice paper I mean it’s completely normal for that to happen

nbd right I’m cool this is totally cool

okay but seriously, thank you chrisriddellblog I am so very honoured that you took the time to do this for me because gosh you are a busy busy man. I’m very glad if you liked the book, and thank you for all the work you do!

sorry I was out all day today (for once in my entire goddamn life) so no doodles but one of my pals is doing an animation and is sort of rotoscoping/hybrid photo manip-ing it and asked me to do three frames for her bc and I quote “you got cartoon eyes you do the big eye part”

anyway I sent her a bonus one
