I love your style of drawing and was delighted going through your site. I'd like to own one of your sketchbooks!

I like these drawings. Imaginative!

I've enjoyed reading through your blog recently. It makes me want to do something about the fading away of the writing quality in my own.

While I know that it doesn't really make a blind bit of difference what kind of marker you use, cat-killing curiosity demands that I still ask what kind of marker you use.

Love your style, this illustration gives me a great feeling. I also enjoy reading your blog.

Thanks for the kind comments.
Mr Zip, it seems the pens I use are Edding 400 permanent markers and Staedtler Permanent Lumocolors. But what works well in an A5 sketchbook often doesn't work well in an A6 one. I've been going around for ages with a chunky Edding 30, but never using it.
When I'm in the shop I never know what I'm going to buy, or remember what I've bought before, but I try a few by doing a quick drawing on the pad kindly supplied for this purpose, and then get one or two that I like the look and feel of.

The colours are fabulous.

It's been great to read your blog and see some of your more recent sketches - I remember first seeing your articles in A+I magazine so it's nice to have found you again and good to see that you've been continuing with your interesting work.

All the best, Annie
