I am working on that Graphic Novel again, the process is slow as my free time is in short supply (with a one year old) but both Christine and I are pleased with the direction characters are taking and the story.
This is a profile of the main character, Sam, although this may even change in time.
I am happy with the style of illustration which is a bit of a departure from my usual style.

Spotted looking north from Glyn's house in Ohakune, North Island, New Zealand, to Mount Ruapehu. The locals call this one, "The Angel's Wing" © Glyn Hubbard.
I just joined the Cloud Appreciation Society, I do enjoy looking at clouds, Melbourne in particular is great for different cloud formations as they are changing constantly due to the strong winds.
This photo is one of my favourites.
I am looking forward to receiving my certificate and badge!

This morning I went swimming at my new local pool.
Since moving house I haven't been swimming, and after a good 20 minute swim I realised how much I missed it.
Tomorrow we are going to take Amelie for a little splash around in their children's pool - I can't wait, I hope she grows to like the water as much as I do.

Today is going to be another hot day of 34, the weekend is pretty much the same then Monday is going to be 41 degrees!!!!! It seems that the majority of my posts recently have been about the heat or various images of me with a hat, scarf or some other item of coverage to protect my skin from the sun. At least we have an air conditioner in our house and if need be I can put it on for a little while to cool the house down (not for too long though as it costs too much).
Sunday we are having an early 1st birthday party for Amelie (her birthday is on 14th), some friends are coming around and I am going to make a ladybird cake. I'll post a photo of the cake when it is finished, fingers crossed it looks decent. Not that Amelie will care but she can look back at the photos when she is older.

In between looking after Amelie I have tried to do more of my drawings, printing and sewing. The launch of Tango 9 with 2 of my comics included was my highlight. I am still working on a graphic novel with my friend but I also want to begin work on my own comic about my past year as a new mother, I have never seen anything published on this topic and well, I'm going to give it a go...
2010: there is a lot to look forward to...and a holiday in London as well! I can't wait to see everyone.

What I wore last night, although the skirt was a little longer.
Last night was the Tango 9 and collected volumes launch. We hired a babysitter which made us very anxious but the lady was lovely and Amelie was asleep for most of the time so it wasn't so bad.
The 3 rooms of Dante's Upstairs were full of Melbourne's comic 'people' an unexpected mix of all ages, sexes (although a little male heavy) and looks. Bernard gave a very vivacious, compelling entertaining speech and then we left as it was just so hot and we were hungry.
So into the night we ventured with our 2 copies of the 346 pages of Tango 9 and had dinner at one of our favourite restaurants Wabi Sabi with Christine and John. It was a lovely night and we appreciated it all the more as we don't get to go out that often.

The dreaded flu caught up with me last week and I have been out of action for awhile. Luckily it has almost disappeared as tonight is the launch of Tango 9 in which I have 2 stories, one written by Ed and one by my friend Christine.

I bought another stripey t-shirt on the weekend, it was perfect: a lovely shade of blue and white with sleeves that come down to the elbow (I love this length sleeve, less chance of being sun burnt), they had another but in red and white ... might have to go back and get it at some point.
I got it from a lovely shop on my high street called Hummingbird 60, their clothes are so lovely and just the length, style, size I like; in shoes, skirts, dresses and well, everything.
I got home and decided to count how many stripey t-shirts I own....11!! I think this constitutes a collection!
