Comic Strip – Tuppy and Sock-Sock- Forbidden Love

It’s been a while since my last blog post! I acknowledge this and I do feel very sheepish about it- I am trying to keep my blog posting kind of regular, but it is a little difficult with so much going on; full time job, freelance work, trying to keep my own personal projects going as well as making time for family, friends and my fiance!

I’ve learned a lot, which is not something to ever complain about. I am still struggling to get my portfolio looking exactly as I want it, and ironing out a few last kinks.
