Every sick day needs a cosy bed, some sleeping cats, a big stack of reading material and a hot drink.  I'm now a member of the AOI, which I have found very informative.  I also have an AOI portfolio to showcase some of my favourite work - you can see it here.

The stylish 1920s

I did this for the Colour Collective weekly Twitter challenge.  The colour was gold, which made me think of 1920s decadence.   This is a pencil drawing coloured in Photoshop.  Follow me on Instagram to see this and other illustrations as works in progress!

Website update

I've freshened up my website with a slightly different format and lots of my newer work.  Next I will be giving my Etsy shop a similar treatment.  I'll update about that soon!

Winter scene

I'm currently in the process of updating my poor neglected website.  Here's a wintry scene to start November.

Viking Boy

It's hard to believe it's nearly November when I don't even need a coat, it's so warm and sunny today! Here's a more wintry scene.

Witch gathering apples

Experimenting again with gouache on coloured card.  This colour was perfect for an autumnal theme.

Wildlife Artist

I planned to do Inktober but I've been dreadful at keeping up with it (a couple of them can be seen over on my instagram though!) But I have a lot of watercolour paintings on the go and am thinking about a few Christmas related things.  I will update about that soon but in the meantime here's one of the paintings I finished this week.

Blue Prince

I have a big pad of coloured card that I got years ago, and this week I finally decided to try it out with gouache.  My usual medium is watercolour so it was a challenge getting the consistency of the gouache right - not too dry, not too watery!  I think I might try some more like this.  I have another 23 colours of card to use!

Recent Work

Here are a few things I've produced over the past few months.  I've tied them in with Twitter challenges, which has been interesting and a lot of fun.  There are a lot more of them over on my Twitter page if you want to take a look.  

I have also started dabbling in digital illustration, which has been challenging but exciting for me to learn so many new things.  More to follow soon!
