A special sketchblog post today.  This is a painting I gave to my friends Ginge and Ellie this weekend in celebration of their birthdays (turning a respective 50 and 40).  Ginge is a friend who shares my appreciation of street art and often sends me photos of the interesting pieces he spots.

Happy birthday you two!

This is actually what I was working on last week, but in all the excitement of finishing a new piece I totally forgot to blog about it.  This illustration will be available as A6 greetings cards, in fact they’re back from the printers already but I haven’t got the cellophane sleeves yet so won’t be adding them to Etsy until next week!

One day I will have a go at making a time-lapse video, but for now you’ll just have to put up with lots of photos…

I’m still having fun working on my new designs for notecards.  This one came about because I wondered what adult wizards might drink if they had to be the designated driver.

My A-level art teacher always said I have the attention span of a butterfly, and really she was quite right. I got distracted from the other project I was trying to finish, so this is what’s been occupying me this week. Still not quite finished, but almost!

There’s always time for tea, and I make even more time for tea cups.  Pretty tea cups are one of my weaknesses, and last year I had a wonderful time painting some of my favourites (if you missed that blog post then click here to view it).

I had always intended to continue with my series of tea cup illustrations but, as ever, things somewhat got in the way.  I finally went back to them last month and although they’re not quite finished yet I thought I might as well pop some photos of the work in progress up here.






Still quite a bit of work to do on those but it’s nice to have finally picked up this project once more.  I hope to have them finished by the end of the summer.

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I first drew some minions, but apparently it has!  Although I made a start on adding colour to my original drawings I got distracted and the project lost impetus and was shelved.

I picked it up again this week and started again, with a larger version of the Marmite illustration this time as I thought it would probably be easier for me to add the colour (larger pictures are a bit more forgiving when you’ve got an unsteady hand!).  I’m much happier with this larger version and once it’s finished I will be adding it to my new Redbubble shop, so if you’re interested then keep an eye out for further updates very soon!
