Natural Beauty

wildflowers
I have been working lately on honing my pattern making skills using flowers as my subjects. I discovered a lot of very beautiful Australian Native Flowers that lend themselves easily to repetition and graphical representation. I also thought it might be nice to step away from the usual tulips and daisies that have had their fair share of the spotlight. These patterns have proven to be very popular on my society6 & Redbubble stores quickly becoming some of my top sellers.

Don’t let these sweet serene looks fool you.
After years of intense Krav Maga training, C-Bomb (as she is known in the more unsavoury circles) can snap your neck last a piece of dry spaghetti. She has an extensive collection of Victorian knuckle dusters and claims she was robbed by Takeru Kobayashi of the 2006 Johnsonville World Bratwurst Eating Championship in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

In Need of a Hug?

Hugo-Calin

Meet Hugo Calin. Available for hugs when needed. Been playing around with adding textures and backgrounds to my hand drawn illustrations.
Not sure it works in this case, I think I just need to experiment a bit more.

I have added him to my redbubble and society6 stores.

Introducing Sabine Lapin

Sabine-Lapin

I am a complete Francophile! I admire the French effortless style and I especially have a love of french kids fashion. I sit for hours on Pinterest drooling over utterly chic French children’s outfits.
I decided to illustrate some of my favourite “looks” by drawing & dressing some cute little creatures. I used pen and ink outlines and then added some colour with watercolour paint and added definition with colour pencil. You will have noticed I have named each character (yes there are more to come) …this is Sabine Lapin (French for Rabbit).

Artists I Love & other Nonsense

the-queen-of-pentacles-prints Teagan White

I have been utterly neglectful of my blog this year and much of late last year.
I have been concentrating on my society6 & Redbubble products & profile but I mean to amend this by not only sharing what I am working on but also on the artists I come across that completely inspire me.

The above image (The Queen of Pentacles) is created one of my absolute favourite illustrators on society6. Teagan White is an American freelance illustrator specializing in intricate drawings of flora and fauna. Her playful use of watercolour to create adorable animal characters  using nostalgic colors, decorative arrangements of organic forms, and meticulous detail makes my heart sing.
See her work and I dare you not to be enchanted.
