the first picture is a concept for a short story I've written called 'The Not-So Haunted House'. I've been trying to develop a house that looked a little scary, but still had charm. The mice above are from one of the verses.
'But what the noise was in this case,
was a bunch of mice all in a race.
Running in the pipes they were,
with track suits on and sweaty fur.'
The second picture is where the little baby fairy from a few of my paintings was born, his sisters were yet to be created. I didn't want to paint anything else on the page, I thought there was something lovely about his little wondering face and unsure posture, 'where is everybody?'
