Foxy Man

This is the rough design for a card I made James, it's his birthday today and I always make him a card. They're usually quite silly, but as we both quite like foxes and we have a local one that trots down our street most nights, I though a fox would be fitting. I'll have to post the finished print later as we're about to head out for a birthday lunch.

Mermaid in colour

Here is a cropped version of the mermaid in her newly coloured state. I played around with the colour of her hair but Emma has chosen brown, so brown it is :I've put copyrite on the image because really it belongs to Emma, it'll be her tattoo and I probably won't post the full image untill she has had it done. I just hope she is as happy with it as I am.

Mermaid progress

I've finally had a moment to sit down and carry on with the mermaid for Emma's tattoo. We decided the nipples were a bit much so I've opted for some star fish, once the black and white version is agreed I'll add some colour. Till then, I'm very pleased with how she's turned out.

Warwick Exhibition Centre - Craft fair

This is me, on Sunday, at the Contemporary Arts Craft Fair. I got up in the wee hours of the morning to set in my little car full of all the things I've been making over the last few weeks. I then drove off into the country side and got myself lost. I spend about half an hour thinking I should give up and go home (to save petrol more than anything else), and then I found the exhibition centre, so I set up and spent the day selling and chatting to other artists and crafters.
I met some lovely people and, although I didn't make a fortune, I did feel that the whole thing was a great success.

...plus I got to wear my Cath Kidston apron as my money belt - Woo Hoo!

Warning - nipples

My friend Emma asked me to draw a mermaid tattoo for her, so here's part of the first sketch, not quite happy with the face yet, but getting there.

Ducky Swan

I'm making some adorable swans for the craft fair, but to save arguments when people call the ducks I'm going to label them Ducky Swans : If they sell well I might add a few to etsy as well.

Swirls and Butterflies

I found this old illustration whilst unpacking after our move. It was sandwiched between some sketchbooks. I thought I'd scan it so I could rework it one day, but I actually quite like it as it is. I used to put swirls on everything (not a lot has changed), I quite like how this one they're almost like ironwork around the fragile butterflies. I wonder what else will turn up...

I'm busy making things for the Christmas Craft fair again. I'll post things as I go. My favourite so far are some swans with little collars on.

Yellow Goat Giveaway

No I'm not giving away yellow goats but Yellow Goat Design is having a beautiful giveaway.

So many gorgeous things, you have the chance of winning some pretty tape and some japanese paper goods of your choice. I have a real weakness for this sort of thing.
