Hi everyone. So, here we go, into the last two months of 2019...and I've been down with a cold this past week, not a pleasant experience coughing and spluttering every few minutes or so. :( Last Thursday, I was in London. I had thought about going to the temporary Pokemon Centre in London, but standing for 4-5 hours in a very long queue did not sound very appealing to me, so I went to Hamley's toy shop instead. There, I found a Mimikyu plush and bought it, among other items. Later that day I went on a tour bus to take in the sights and monuments. After which I decided to head home - missing a train and a coach. >^<; But I caught anoth

Hi, everyone, Dan here. I hesitate to start this journal off on a sour note, but there's this user who recently called me a nine-letter (or ten-letter in the UK) P word, just because many of my friends on here are below my age and I talk to them. I'm angry, hurt and upset at this and have blocked the user in question, but as you can imagine my nerves have taken a hit. I had been drawing and colouring pictures for this person for well over a year, on and off and for these circumstances to happen... I'm just at a loss for words. I have never made any messages that are creepy or stuff, nor have any knowledge of such and I will NOT stand for su

Hey everyone, Dan here. Nearly halfway into 2019 and everything's fine so far. ^^ The internet's been behaving well, I've been on two railway visits so far this year, drawings are going well and I might be getting myself a Switch soon. The sooner the better, with games like Pokemon Sword/Shield on the way. :D Keep a lookout for upcoming Pokemon, Thomas, TUGS, Takeshi's Castle and snake/coil related pictures coming up soon, as well as upcoming commissions and have a great day. :) Kind regards, Dan.

HAPPY NEW YEAR - 1/1/2019

Hello everyone! Let me start by wishing each and every one of you a Happy New Year! Since 24th December, I've been having this cold which I seem to be getting rid of very slowly. On the up side, I got quite a good amount of presents on Christmas Day, including the Crystal Maze Board Game and Steam Locos in Profile Volume 3. Please keep a look out for upcoming artwork, including more from Pokemon, Kaa, Thomas and Friends, TUGS and the usual. ^^ Kind Regards, Dan.

Hello, everyone Dan here. :D I'm back again, having being away for three weeks. My modem played up again, this time due to a heatwave three weeks ago with my internet provider. ><; I hate being away from the internet... However, while that was quite the inconvenience, it had given me the chance to catch up with artwork, so watch out for some new uploads soon. ^^ Kind Regards, Dan. :)

Happy (LATE) New Year

Happy (LATE) New Year

Hello, everyone,  Dan here. First of all, let me start by wishing you all a belated happy new year. :D Second, the reason for my absence. I got a new computer a week after Boxing Day, but my internet went off shortly after Boxing Day and I couldn't go and check messages. So, I was really annoyed. On the up side though, I have over 100 newly drawn pics ready for scanning and colouring so you'll hopefully see those before long. :D Kind regards, Dan.

Hi, everyone. On top of current pictures in the works, I'm starting to think about Christmas related ideas, since it's around a month away. If you have an idea, let's hear it and if you're lucky it may be drawn. ^^ Kind Regards, Dan

Hi, everyone, Dan here. First of all, I'd like to say thanks to everyone who sent me birthday messages on 11th October and after. It was a quiet birthday, but I enjoyed it. Overall, I got some more sketching pencils, a Pokemon mug and £60 birthday money for a good spend, as far as gifts went. ^^ Since Halloween is fast approaching, I have a few ideas for pictures, so watch out for those. And also watch out for more Thomas, TUGS, Pokemon, Kaa and possibly some more Takeshi's Castle art. Kind regards Dan. P.S. Among my newest picturess is this one which I drew for my friend ~Rose-Supreme (https://www.deviantart.com/rose-supreme)  It's of his OC, Bea Bizzare in a scene re

Hi, everyone. ^^ Just a little update: I will be on vacation at Dawlish Warren, Devon with my family from 9th-16th September, and internet access may be limited for me, so if I don't post anything within a week, you'll know why.  ;) Watch out for new artwork over the coming months, including some from Thomas & Friends, TUGS, Pokemon, game shows and a few more of Kaa. ;) Kind regards, Dan

Hi, everyone. Tomorrow's the day I go back to the Talyllyn Railway in Tywyn, making it my second visit there and to Wales as a whole. No doubt I'll take plenty of photos, so watch out for those. Here's hoping the weather cheers up a bit. :P As for other pictures, there will be more Pokemon, Thomas, TUGS and Kaa related art, so watch out for those, too. Kind Regards, Dan.

Hi, everyone, Dan here. I'm planning to take another visit to the Talyllyn Railway in Tywyn, Wales on June 10th, to make up for not visiting the Butterley Railway Center over Easter. This will be the second time I've visited the famed Narrow Gauge Railway and Wales as a whole. ^^ I'm still on track (No pun intended... ) with the Great Race engine pictures, still having Ashima, Carlos, Raul and Rajiv left to complete before I make a montage of all the International Great Race engines altogether, so watch out for those. I also have more TUGS art in the works, watch out for an upcoming Top Hat pic. ;) And, of course, I recently put up two ne

Less than two weeks until I move house. When I do move house, there may be a possibility the internet will not be on, so I may be offline for a few days.
A heads up - Within the next few weeks, I may be moving house for the first time in over 25 years. At the moment, the new house isn't updated with the internet, so I may be offline for a hopefully short amount of time. Until then, I'll still be drawi...
