Doodling…

Just a quick blog today… I have been getting completely lost in my wedding preparations that even on the commute that is now my daily routine I have managed to keep a smile on my face.  My dad is my hero and I have decided to take a leaf out of his book and just… Read more »

Drawing from Folksy Friday

Another week nearly done, and as hectic as it’s been it wasn’t as stressful as I’d first anticipated, which means that I am calm enough to go to the National Portrait Gallery tonight to join in the free artist drop in drawing session. I rarely draw the human form, apart from in ‘anonymity style’ but… Read more »

Sketchbook Project started it’s journey!

I think it has to be a mixture of relief and happiness that I have finally finished my sketchbook project, but also an element of sadness as I send it on it’s journey away from me to the USA.  It’s been a tough challenge trying to fit it in around my full-time job, wedding planning… Read more »

Sketchbook so close…

I’m so glad it’s Saturday, but even happier that the sketchbook project deadline has been extended until Tues! This gives me the weekend to finish it, take photos and start scanning, as once I send it off on it’s travels I will not see it again unless I get to Brooklyn Art Library. If you… Read more »

October Folkfest – Day 24

It’s been a nice relaxed day, and I even had time to do this month’s illusrapedia illustration – vehicles.  This one started life with an idea from my boyfriend but then slowly evolved, and now makes me think of my mum who is constantly rushing about and getting annoyed by all things slow! My Folkfest… Read more »

October Folkfest – Day 20

I’m going to feature a few more folkfesters today to make up for not being able to blog yesterday. Although I was very tired this morning after a late night I was very proud to see Dan Djing at the Redbull competition last night! Today’s item from me is a relisting of my snowbear illustration… Read more »

October Folkfest – Day 13

Yay, we’re over half way through the week, and it seems to be slowly improving. I got home after going to Westfield/White City after work to a lovely letter from my Canadian penpal Kate aka Scientific Culture and I can’t wait to choose my next card so I can write back! I really want to… Read more »

Under the weather on Folksy Friday

It’s been a long week this week, and I’ve had some time off work as I’ve struggled to keep my blood sugar under control (fainting on a building site is embarrassing to say the least, but at least I had my hard hat on!) I’m still under the weather, but after a bit of rest… Read more »
