Turning the first sod

Welcome to my blog!
As someone who writes mostly with a pencil on the back of an envelope this is exciting and faintly terrifying. (Just choosing a font had me paralyzed for half an hour.)
Yesterday I embarked on a project with the irrepressibly energetic and creative singer/songwriter phenomenon MIKA. We are going to communicate via a drawing, a kind of Surrealist 'Exquisite Corpse' collaboration, which we will send back and forth at the mercy of the US postal system.
Have a look at MIKA's website:
This blog will be a place to record what happens, and also to mention new books and things like that which I have been fundamentally hopeless at doing. Until now.
You'll see. I'll be blogging blindfolded soon.

Wauw! You make amazing illustrations! I took a look at your website after I read Mika's blog and I must say that I LOVE the project! I'm sure that the end result will be wonderful :)

Have fun with it!
