I tend to thrive on deadlines, creating them for myself even if I don’t have to because it makes me more productive, but this month I have no projects demanding urgent attention. And I’m still managing to get a few things done.

Here are a couple of little drawings I’ve just finished and listed on Etsy:

The Return #1 — ink and watercolour, 90 x 90 mm, 2016. Available for purchase.

The Return #2 — ink and watercolour, 90 x 90 mm, 2016. Available for purchase.

Elements

I’ve been getting reacquainted with working in pen and watercolour. It’s been ages. Too long, really. So I thought I’d ease back into it with a few abstract patterns. One thing led to another and the four mini (3″ x 3″) artworks below are now for sale on Etsy.

Reinventing myself (an annaversary post)

Today is my little blog’s fourth anniversary🎈🎈🎈🎈 and so I thought I would go back in time to the very beginning. Here is my first post from 13th March 2012. Have a creative day.

A couple of years ago, I started an illustrated journal. I was inspired by Danny Gregory and his book The Creative License and I wanted to see if I could draw.

One month and 19 sketches later, I drew Villa 10…

…and the road home (among other things).

I enjoyed sketching so much that I decided to take an art course at the Design & Arts College in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Caught! — ink and digital watercolour, 2016

Caught! A true story. Jasper’s puppy portrait now has pride of place in his owners’ littlest room.

How could I resist drawing this photo?! That face! Those eyes! Oh Jasper, you’re not that small any more, are you?
