Only for now.

No internet until the 5th of December. Will draw lots and update when possible. x

From Last week.

oh maaaan that's a dodgy drawing of a glass of wine. Please forgive me, I'm tired and ill and I've spent the last two (into three) days moving house. There may be a sufficiant lack of comics uploaded as I may not have internet in my new house until the 5th of December (THE 5TH?!) but I'll do my best with that. Felt pretty emotional, but actually drawing seems to have helped. That glass of wine hasn't though. *Terrible glass of wine drawing - we'll meet again. Then I'll draw the hell out of you*

It's Fat Free!




I recomend this the morning after with a little butter or spread - it's made very tasty breakfasts :) x

The result.

Tried a different method this eveing. Pencils, scanned - line work and colour all done digitally... The song is called 'Fifty Percent of him' from a Musical called Ballroom. It's a lovely, bitter sweet song.

Tumbles and Tumblr



I've said about doing this for ages now. Dieting comics. Well. I've started! I'm using tumblr, just to get a feel for it really and to try and to keep on the weight-loss train.

I've usually got people telling me that either:

 a.) I've got such a pretty face it's a
shame that I'm heavier than I should be 
or
 b.) Don't be silly, you don't need to loose weight.

I'm not listening to either of these two things as I have decided that I want to loose weight and become healthier for myself. I've been invited to a wedding party in January and I don't want to buy anymore larger clothes. (I can't afford to, I'm buying a shoebox house!)

I'm trying to figure out what works for me and WHY I am compelled to eat when I'm not hungry. (There's a whole back-catalog of issues there I think) I'm going to figure out and draw my emotional eating triggers and the things I can do to counter-act them. I'm going to draw nummy foods and recipes, the exercise embarrassments I inflict upon myself and I'm going to document the changes in me.

 I'm getting back to me, I'm much happier than I was a few weeks ago (thanks to my amazing friends and supportive family) Work is amazing - I am sworn to secrecy, but I love designing toys for a living - I am living my own personal dream and things are starting to come together.

I once had a conversation with one of my very best friends about what I think makes a person attractive. It's a person who makes the best of themselves. Through confidence, health, passion etc... looking after yourself and making yourself the best you can be (without sounding like a cliche crazy person) is what makes people love you. Because you love yourself.

Unfortunately. I'm all full of incite this evening, but I've just watched The Great British Bake Off and tomorrow I know that I'm going to be craving that slab of cake. Hell. I'm going to be dreaming of it.

Let the drawn diet diary commence!
