Not a very scary dinosaur

It's only a quick simple one but I drew a little dinosaur for Daily__doodle on twitter - the word was 'dinosaur' for the late Richard Attenborough. I realised as I went to start drawing I don't remember actually drawing a dinosaur before... right girly girl me!

Daily Doodle - Veruca Salt

Yesterday I discovered Daily_doodle on twitter - they tweet daily something to illustrate and share what people have drawn. How exciting! So this is my first go:

You can find my twitter here, do please follow me!

trying to find a balance

This only really captures a small amount of what I've been up to lately. In the last year I've become a homeowner, gardener (learning), swimmer (recreational) and part time very healthy eater. As well as the things I was already - greetings card designer, MA student, Auntie, sister, daughter, daydreamer. Busy but fun!

Book sneaky peek

I haven't really posted much of the book I've been working on for my MA, so there's lots to come yet... Here's a couple of pictures I've shared on my facebook and twitter today.

New designs in Waitrose!

Oh dear, my poor little blog has been so deserted lately... I should draw a tumbleweed :( It's not because I've been doing nothing though.. it's the opposite. I will back this up with visual evidence as soon as I can.

In the meantime... these are a couple of my designs I illustrated at Hallmark for Waitrose. They have come into store recently and I've just received the samples. Hooray!!!

Printing in the garden

The other day was the first hot sunny day I've been in my new house and free to bond with my garden (I didn't have a garden for 5 years before this!)... So I did some printing! I've got some ideas in mind for how I'll use the textures... will post back soon to show how I get on!

Dr Sketchy Sheffield

Here are some of my drawings from Saturday's Dr Sketchy in Sheffield - tattoo special! I used to go life drawing a lot but since I've had a mega busy couple of years with work/studying/general life I hadn't been for a while! Felt lovely to do some again :)

A dog and a bone

Thought I'd finally put up some little scenes I've been working on for my children's book portfolio. It's just a small project - a story in three pictures - to see what feedback I get from my agent.
I've drawn by hand and then coloured digitally, using scanned textures I've either painted/scribbled/made/found etc! I've sent them off to my agent so will wait to see what I hear, eek!

Thought I'd show a teeny preview of what I've been working on today.
This is just a tiny portion of it but I didn't feel ready to share the whole thing with the world yet!
