I am loving the new wall clocks over at Society6! You can choose the colour of the frame and of the hands and they don’t even have to match. Check them out!
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.
Soon to come… Eric Cantona illustration magnet & Iron Man illustration magnet.
So as you may have noticed from my Facebook Page, I have recently been featured in Golden Age Magazine and what a lovely magazine it is! Such an honour to be selected next to the very talented people featured. Full of wonderful whimsical photography featuring a variety of creatives. Sound like your cup of tea? Check out the issue here: http://issuu.com/goldenage/docs/issue11.
As you may recall from a post a few weeks ago (A Busy Bee), I have been working on some fashion illustrations as my half of a collaboration and well, it’s nice to say that I’ve finally finished my half of the project! Here they are:
Well it’s one week into 2012 and so far my resolutions/goals are going strong! At first I was a bit daunted as to where to begin all of these ideas, projects, hobbies… So after talking to a friend of mine we decided that first I should finish all the unfinished projects of 2011! Finish the old to start the new.
So this weekend has all been about getting through my part of a collaboration with Rosanna Geissler, we’d agreed on a theme and what we were going to do months ago but both leading busy lives the project I must admit just stopped. So I had 6 illustrations I wanted to create to send off to Rosanna to do her thing. This weekend I managed to complete 4 / 6! Which I am pretty impressed with as I’m a slow worker. Here’s a look at what I’ve done so far…
If I’m completely honest, I love the outcome (and if you know me at all, you will know I don’t usually like my work). It’s been really fun to do something a bit different. I have always admired fashion illustration and I think this is a step in the right direction. Just another 2 more to go and my half of the collaboration is complete. I’m looking forward to seeing the final piece!
P.s. On another note.. I have taken the first step on another of my New Years Resolutions – and I have bought a quilting magazine! I know you could learn off the internet for free but maybe if I pay for the magazine it will be more incentive for me to do it, so I haven’t wasted my money. It’s one of those ‘Make a Piece ever week’ kind of magazines, so I will let you know how that turns out!
