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.

Still Bumbling Along

I had coffee with my lovely friend Gillian this morning. She is off to live in Perth with her family in the next month, much to our little community’s dismay.

This got my brain ticking.

I decided to have a go at adding to my growing card collection and create a farewell card idea.

This is what I came up with.

For Polly on her Birthday

cakeday
Well today is my youngest daughter’s birthday. The household is very excited. Of course the birthday girl is happy but my other daughter is probably as equally beside herself. You see  to her…you could replace “Happy Birthday” with “Happy Cake Day” for Daisy. It’s ALL about the cake. Now I am sure she is not alone so this post is dedicated to not only Polly but to Daisy and all the cake lovers out there.
