Its been a while since I wrote a journal entry. The first thing to say is that I have survived my first year! I celebrated the end of year one as a full-time artist at the beginning of June by launching my Playful Pets competition to win a portrait of your pet, which went down well! I am also delighted to say that I met my ambitious target of drawing 100 dogs in the first year by drawing 108 dogs, 4 rabbits, 2 humans and a cat.

In summary, it's twice as many hours as my previous job in a shop, and doesn't pay as well (yet!), but I wouldn't change it for the world. Really looking forward to year two.
