Sorry for the lack of posts lately...I've been busy writing my Christmas cards - around 60 this year(!) - and sorting out various stuff and things. December is always a bit hectic!
Still got a few more Christmas pressies to buy but I'm reluctant to go into town to face the ridiculous chaos and crowds. And it is freezing outside, brrrr!!
Here's a new illustration of a lion I did, and an old sewing on felt of a lion and dolphin I found whilst rummaging around in my studio. The felt pieces are based on constellations. I used to sew quite a bit, but haven't done in a while. Maybe I will get back into it in the New Year...
Oops, I forgot to crop the images so please excuse the messy edges...
Anyway, here are some personal Christmas card illustrations I've just done. I've ordered them to be printed as greeting cards. I hope they come out ok...I am a little nervous!! Typically it's all last minute stuff with no time to spare for any mistakes. hmmm.
But I like to at least make an effort each year. I enjoy sending Christmas cards as it's a great chance to get in touch with people and actually write something using a pen :)
They are the cards I worked on for James Ellis Stevens at the end of last year. I mentioned it in the early days of my blog. There are 6 different designs. I'll post about them properly the next time...(it's 3am and I need to go to bed!)
I make pictures with paint, scissors, paper and glue. I love colour. My studio is messy, with paper trails often leading to the kitchen. I used to be a night owl until I became a mum. Now I am just a little bit of a night owl, with big bags under her eyes, yearning for just a few more minutes in bed.
