Tiger Growl


This one's my latest ACEO. It's coloured pencil on heavyweight cartridge paper and it's up for sale here.

I'm also working on a larger pencil piece so if that turns out ok I'll post pictures. Might take me a while to do though I'm not exactly a speedy artist. Hopefully won't be too long though!

Little Kitten


Here's my latest little drawing. Not my usual thing but I felt like a bit of a change. This little kitty is contemplating a trip further than the back door into the big world beyond.

It's up on eBay here.

deviantART

I've just started up a gallery over on deviantART where I'm going to put up some of my old and new stuff and generally point out other much more talented artists on there than me. I've often been over there to have a look there's some amazing work, anyone that likes art should definitely check it out.

Something wicked this way comes...

Something wicked this way comes

A new ACEO today, pencil on smooth cartridge paper. I'm thinking I'll do a series of these as I like the idea and had fun with this. You can't beat good old fashioned drawing with a bit of paper and a pencil, digital isn't the same.

Capture

Illustration Friday ~ Capture

I've been a bit lazy recently so I did a quick sketch giving myself no more than an hour to get back into it a bit. It's based on the various bugs I've seen captured inside pieces of amber.

Rain


Illustration Friday ~ Rain

Something about blogger really doesn't like this post. I hope it works this time as it's about my fifth attempt to fix it. Sorry to all those who tried to look and there was nothing here. This is a quick sketch I did in Painter as I'm trying to learn to work digitally, so it was a bit of practice really.

Headless Chicken

I'm having a hard time focusing on one thing and nothing seems to get done! I wanted to do a card for tomorrows ACEO UK theme week which is Sanctuary. I've come up with an idea I really like, only I like it so much I want to make it into a bigger piece. Consequently no card for tomorrow. Think I might get my paints out for that one too as I feel like splashing some colour around.

I've also found a great little book I want to try use for an Altered Book project I'm thinking of (see pic). Got to love having an Oxfam book shop, £1.99! Bargain!

And then I've also got a collage in mind I want to give as a gift, and I want to do something for Illustration Friday as I've had a good idea for that too. I'm all ideas and don't know where to start first! Argh!

Shadows


Urgh horrible weather outside today it's pouring with rain. Definitely a day for staying in and doing some art work. I thought I'd add some of my past work from before I started my blog. Mainly because with my terrible memory it's a good idea to make a note of things before I've forgotten the details. This was a pencil ACEO I did towards the end of last year. It was for a theme week of one of the groups I was in. The theme being Shadows. In fact thinking about it this was the first ACEO I did. It's what got me started. Well that and a lot of persuading from my darling mother. I guess it's my turn to get someone else hooked on them now!

Insects



Illustration Friday ~ Insect

Thought it would be fun to do some mini-art for illustration friday. I love the idea of this website. These two are tiny stamp sized pieces done purely in pencil. I had fun with these and rather like the finished result. I might make them into an ACEO at some point.

Unfinished work


This piece has been half finished for ages. I just can't decide on the background. I might try playing around with some ideas in painter before committing to actually drawing it. It's proving to be annoying that I can't finish it off how I want.

Angel Series


Here's my latest three pieces which are about to end on ebay. No bids unfortunately but that's ok they're not very traditional pieces they were more of a personal project. They were based on the idea of guardian angels or spirits, each doing a different role. There's healing, guidance and protection.

Healing

Guidance

Protection


Welcome

So this is my new blog. Starting it was really someone else's suggestion but we'll see how it goes.
