It’s been a while since I’ve done anything related to The Sketchbook Artist, I’ve been keeping up my other blog (Mam, I Am), working part-time in a shop as well as moving into and decorating our new house. The last few months have just flown by and now Christmas is just around the corner! Eeek! Anyway, whilst I’ve been away the wonderful people at Society6 have been busy creating some new products such as tank tops, full cover tote bags and now mugs!! Check it out.
So it’s been pretty quiet around here recently *tumble weed slowly drifts on by*. My personal life has pretty much taken hold of the driver’s seat for the past few months as a lot has been going on. First off we are in the process of buying a house! Eek, exciting times but a lot of paperwork and running around. On top of that we have been trying to spend time as a family so there’s been a lot of travelling back and forth between England and Wales.
I have done some work in this period though, as I was commissioned to create an A1 sized cat portrait. It was a bit different to what I usually do as it was in colour and in soft pastels! I loved the challenge and it was great fun working in a different medium. So here it is. The final piece. I was very happy to find that the customer was very happy with the portrait which is what I aim to achieve, customer satisfaction!
Here’s a little sneaky peak at what I’ve been working on recently. Seeing as I have more time to myself now I have been trying to draw more often. What better way to do this than to create some images for the wonderful Amelia’s Magazine? Also working on my personal goals of using more colour in my work. For now I’m playing it safe and sticking to the good, old, trusty pencils!
P.s. Just another reminder that I’m still currently having a HALF PRICE SALE over at my Etsy shop! Take a look here.
