trying to write Limericks

Flying up into the sky

She was scared, that’s no lie!

Round cliff edges in flight

And around the lighthouse, bright

They swiftly rose up very high!   

My dragon story is coming on. But I’m trying to write 16 limericks to go with it (perhaps more). Each one will relate to a page that has a black and white ongoing illustration of the story. At the moment I’m trying to decide on a good clear font for the writing which will be visible against any illustration. There will also be colour illustrations of the dragons scales. This poem and image are part of the book so I have to say that they are covered by copyright and should not be copied or shared without my permission. Im just giving you an idea of what I have been up to ( bad limericks included!)   

Tee shirt idea

So when I was watching a lecture yesterday about copyright © I doodled this. Apparently I own the rights to anything I draw or paint and I don’t have to register it with anyone. So even this doodle, scruffy and just roughly drawn is my property. I guess I haven’t really thought much about it. I know my finished work is copyright but I hadn’t thought about little sketches. You have to be aware of other people’s designs, and plagerism, but I don’t think I have seen anything like this before. Anyway I think it would be fun to design tee shirts.
