Hey everyone, I hope you all had an excellent Christmas and I hope you have a fantastic new year's this week.

First of all I'd like to apologise for my lack of activity here in the last month or so, I've been on holiday, done some work for a small publishing house based in Brighton in Melbourne, and of course I've been celebrating the holidays with my family, including my brother and his girlfriend who are currently on holiday in Australia from their place in England. Whew!

Now I'd like to share a little personal project/goal that I've created. Starting January 1st 2010, I'll be drawing a cartoon a day for a whole year! They'll also be on sale so check in out in January and perhaps get yourself a little bonafied cartoon of your own! Each cartoon sold will also be shipped with a free pencil sketch.

Check it out here:

As always, thank you for the comments/faves/watches, I hope you all have an amazing new year's. :)

Wow, so you ARE a book illustrator, that's awesome! I have wondered if that is a field in art that I would like to get into. It's hard to get into cartooning when you're living on the East Coast of the US.
Anyway, your art is wonderful, and I'm definitely going to give you a watch :thumbsup:

Hey, Mel, how are you doing?
MelDraws Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012
Hi Stanton! It's been a long time! Sorry I didn't get around to replying until today. I think my DeviantArt account is feeling a little neglected!
avancna Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, yes it is. What have you been up to?
