I’m a cartoonist who muses over life’s little oddities. After several years carving out a career in the environmental sector and dabbling as a freelance designer & illustrator, I decided to go back to university to study Graphic Design. This was intended as my metamorphosis. I also have big hair, hence the title Big Hair Metamorphosis and the birth of this blog.
The sudden change in direction was an interesting ride, not least because university as a mature student is a whole different ball game. Young or old, when you pop out at the other end, dissertation in hand, the road doesn’t always lead you down the path you intended. Now, several years down the line I draw for pleasure. I still do the odd commission but hold down a 9-5 regular paying job too.
You may not go in for this blogging award stuff, but I really enjoy your illustrations and have listed you in my blog post today for the Beautiful Blogger Award. I love your illustrations and quirky sense of humor and wanted to share that with people who read my blog. Thanks!
Wow! That’s really kind. Thank you so much – that’s a little boost to my ego and has made my Friday!
Oh and by the way, I’m based in the UK! Maybe I should be more forthcoming in my ‘About me’ section!
I misread your Londinium post. I’ll fix the info right now. Thanks for clarifying!
Love your blog! And I admire your career change. It takes a lot of courage to change your life when you’re not happy with the way it was. So thanks…for inspiring me:)
HI BIghair, I hope its ok but I used your wobbly bike cartoon on my blog: http://operationtransportation.blogspot.ie/ and I gave your blog a plug too.
I wish I could recruit you to do Operation Transportation- you’d be excellent! Plus I might get more that 5 other readers per post! Still I guess you are one of those minimum 60mile per trip “real cyclists” by now…. 🙂
Kind Regards, Sarah aka Wiley Wheeler.
Hi Sarah! Thanks for letting me know – it’s been a while since I did any blog maintenance so apologies for missing your comment!
Thanks for the follow!
Thanks for following my blog, I hope you’ll enjoy my images. And I know just what you mean about university as a mature student being a whole different ball game – having done 6 years in the 60s/70s, and then some university lecturing in Africa, I went back for teacher training when I was 40 or so and had a decidedly mediocre experience!
