A cordovan tea party

Last week’s #colour_collective colour was cordovan. This is my entry. Inspired by the times I used to have tea parties with my stuffed animals in the basement. Cordovan

Remembering Rusty

So when I was growing up I convinced my parents to get me an Irish Setter…which I named Rusty (how original…I know!) She was not the healthiest of dogs. It was always one things after another. But she was a good dog…because as my husband says…all dogs are good dogs!

More late night sketching

So I stumbled across Fred Blunt’s work and fell in love. A few characters inspired by his work.

Flipside Prints

I feel like my creative brain has been squeezed dry…at least that’s how I felt last week. There’s still more work to be done, but I need to give myself a wee break…get away from the computer screen and reconnect with pencil and paper.

Here are a few sketches…

 

 

With any luck things will slow down a little and I will be able to get some more sketching done…maybe even fully illustrate a few.

 

 

 

Where does the time go?

It’s been ages since I’ve had a chance to post. The days just seem to whiz by lately. I guess that’s what happens when your a mother with a 6 month old and working full…add also working from home. Thought I might share one of my latest commissions. Had so much fun working this out for a local dog walk can’t wait to see what it’s gonna look like on the flyer.

Swinging

Still dreaming of better weather. It can’t be grey and rainy all the time…right?

Back to the drawing board

Finally able to get some sketching done before heading off to bed. With all this grey weather we’ve been having I been dreaming about sunny days and music in the park.

Morning Sketch

What a busy day…but I still found time for this little one…I think I just may colour this one. What do you think? Worthy to be pursued into the colour stage?
