It looks like this week I have been fighting the gloomy weather with some exoticism!
Tropical trees and plants – if you watched my previous videos you saw that I started sketching tropical trees and plants a couple of weeks ago. I got some new Inktense pencils (by Derwent) for my birthday and this week’s coloured sketches were an excuse to try them – they’re absolutely brilliant and I love them already!
Peacocks – they are one of my new obsessions at the moment. I am drawing and painting lots of them. What for? I am still to figure it out.
Etsy – my new products are up! Click here to have a look.
Doodles – Crazy what you can draw when you’re on the phone/Skype! When I came up with this whole page of bacteria I was like “What?!“. Have a go and see what happens!
Admin and database work – Not the most exciting job but necessary! I’m sure ‘Future me’ will thank ‘Past me’ for being so organised.
I didn’t mention it in the video but this week I also worked on some character concepts for one of my clients – exciting! Hopefully I will be able to tell you more about this in the near future but for now let’s just be patient.
I thought that you might want to know that if you visit my Etsy shop this week you can get 20% OFF single postcards with the code OCT15SGPSTCD and 20% OFF packs of postcards with code OCT15PKPSTCD.
Offer available until 20:59 BST on Sunday 18 October 2015 (or until stock lasts).
To keep up with the tradition of the past few weeks, here is another birthday card I made last week. And a little bit of news while I’m at it: I have only very recently opened an Etsy shop (there are a few Christmas cards on there already and more products to come in the near future) and this card (the polar bear one) actually gave me a few ideas of home crafted cards that I could sell on there. I am also thinking of drawing original illustrations on notebooks. If any of you has any further ideas on what you would like to see in my shop – ideally of things that are not breakable (I have thought of mugs with my original designs on too but I still need to think about the safe transportation issue; but in the meantime you can still get mugs from my Society 6 shop!) – do get in touch!
