Finally finished this one up after showing a WIP a week or so ago. Feels apt today in my slightly humid and sweaty studio...
There's a fun thing happening over on Twitter where people are drawing a lion a day for the month of July. I'm doing my own slant on this with one lion, one day. See what I did there?
My contribution to this month's challenge - the giraffe.
Yesterday I decided that my various social media platforms lacked a sense of cohesiveness and that I needed a strong image to sit as a banner across them all. I consulted my list of things that I want to draw (yes, this is a real thing and if you don't have one I recommend it highly as you'll never again sit down and lose valuable creative time thinking 'what shall I draw right now?') The finished piece also works nicely as a pattern!
I drew this for this week's Lucky Draw Challenge, an alligator lounging on a chaise longue...
I had a sudden urge to draw foxes last week, so here they are...
I spotted a sudden influx of unicorn drawings on my feed and discovered that #junicorn is a thing. As a kid I was a massive fan of anything with four legs, particularly equine in nature, and those years were well spent sketching ponies and learning how to trot like a horse (surprisingly handy). So I have no fear of the dreaded horse commission, in fact please bring it on - I'd love to work on an entire book of them!
I drew this yesterday when the heavens opened and the rain came bucketing down. The weather this year has been pretty challenging so far, particularly for this SAD sufferer who needs sunshine in order to feel vaguely normal!
I'm feeling Spring-like...
I managed to miss Earth Day on the weekend, so here's a little thing that I drew for it.
I drew this for the Booktrust's bedtime campaign.
This guy frequently crops up in my sketchbook and has gone through various development phases throughout the years, here's his latest incarnation. I'm back writing and editing and a new story for him is now in the final stages, then it's on to the storyboards...
I've been fiddling about with this one for a week now and I'm finally ready to share it with you all.
It's International Women's Day today, so let's celebrate the strong women we know now and the kick-ass girls who will be flying the flag after us...
I do not like being cold, I belong in warmer climes - preferably clutching a glass with a perky little umbrella in it.
Happy Valentine's Day. I'm not keen on the commercialised aspect of this day, but I do appreciate the sentiment and I like the idea of celebrating all of our relationships: be it friends, children, parents, relations, pets or pandas.
Okay so it is nearly the end of January, but it has taken a while for me to process that another year has ended and a new one has begun!
I'm either increasing the anticipation here or provoking the panic depending on what kind of Christmas gift-buyer you are, a last minute merchant or a super-organised type who bought everything in November?
See what I did there? Here's a snippet of a larger piece that I'm working on.
