Sneeky peek!

Been working on an illustration tonight for Amelia's magazine - a little different to my normal stuff but nice to try something I wouldn't normally do!

Abstract forest number 2

This morning has been spent putting together another print for my series of 'abstract forests'. Looking forward to seeing them screen-printed and all together! Maybe next week with a bit of luck.

Notebooks ahoy!

I have been super busy during my Summer vacation from work, making and printing lots of new stock for forthcoming events! Really excited about putting the finishing touches to some new 'Pink Parakeet' items and a rather fun new venture I'm embarking upon - more of that soon!

Today has been spent binding and trimming these little boat print notebooks, whilst munching on copious amounts of coffee and cake! The perfect way to spend a productive afternoon. Just 40 more to go!

Yay a new print!

Finished a little screen print this week - and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Like the thought of having a selection of pattern/abstract prints within my forest theme collection alongside some more 'illustration' prints. Time to fashion a few others to go with it now - happy days!

What to do in a thunderstorm?

I always turn my computer off when there's thunder about - paranoid maybe but I don't want my precious Mac dying on me because of a power serge! There has been plenty of rumblings this afternoon here in Leeds so whilst the skys were going a little crazy I took the time to make up some cards.
These I screen-printed a little while ago but thought they looked a bit drab so have been 'colouring them in'. Now they look like a just doodled card ready to send - perfect for my next craft sale!

Work in progress.

Been cutting out bits of paper today for some simplistic/abstract woodland scenes in contrast to the busy illustrations I started on yesterday. Still a bit of a way to go though. At least I've got my colour palette sorted!

Might these be the colours?!

So hard to know what they'll look like just by seeing them on a computer screen - every monitor makes them look slightly different which is very annoying, much prefer mixing paint in a pot. 

Something bright and cheerful with a touch of autumn is what I think I'm going to go for. Maybe a little bit of changing when I see them together in paint on paper but along these lines - hurrah! 
What a productive day.

Hooray for Mr Fox!

Hmm, which colours? Going to keep tweaking...

Finally Mr Badger comes to life!

After drawing these guys a few weeks ago I've managed to finally get around to making them into print designs - will start screen-printing them tomorrow with a bit of luck - yippee! What do you think - shall I leave the text on or not?
