Currently illustrating the second Rare Monkey children’s book. Jo has finished writing a wonderful new story and we’ve set ourselves a schedule for the next two months. If all goes to plan the new book will be ready for all-kiddy-winks-everywhere by mid October.
It’s nice to have something creative on the go that shifts my brain away from acting for a bit. Whether it’s illustration, a diy project, looking after a basil plant, whatever – it is almost always useful to come back to my work after a shift in energy and focus.
I can’t remember where I read it (I think it might have been Penelope Cruz) but someone said something along these lines: “It can’t all be about acting – that would drive you nuts”
…that’s some good sense right there, ja.
