This Is Me

My husband took this photo of me a couple of weeks ago. I don't usually like how I look in photos, but I don't mind this side profile shot.

Thank you to everyone who participated in my giveway, and may your day be blessed in many other ways.

Fuchsia Girl

This is my latest illustrative effort, combining hand drawn and Photoshop skills. Proud me! The ensemble was inspired by the Fuchsia flower.
I have entered this piece into a Wacom drawing competition. Judging by the level of skill of other entrants in the competition I know I won't win. But no matter, I had fun preparing this art piece. :)

My Creative Space...

This week I finished a painting which will go on the bedroom wall of a future nephew/niece. Although you can't tell from the photo there is actually glitter within the paint of the night sky.

This week I have been working a little bit on a short story for a local writing competition. On top of that I am reading Knit Knit, a book that I borrowed from the library (for the second time).

It is a time of contemplation for me at the moment — this happens a lot. There are always so many things I want to try, and not enough hours in the day to do it all. Do I focus on drawing? Or on writing? On sewing? Or knitting? Or can I combine all of the above?

My Creative Space...

The past week or so I have been working on this illustration, which I finally finished this afternoon. I was inspired by the song Lil Red Riding Hood by Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs. I have been thinking of doing more with this theme — modernizing the story of Lil Red.

This line art is another piece I have just started. I plan to turn this into a painting for the bedroom of a future niece/nephew. I am still working out the colour scheme, of course.

While you're here, why not check out some other creative spaces over at Kootoyoo. ;)

When Feathers Fly

I love this Mark Ronson song, titled Bang Bang Bang. There is a nerd-groove that reminds me of the late eighties, and early nineties. Such a great way to start your weekend.
