This Christmas was quite stress free! Relatives visited us so I got to stay indoors all day, drinking pear cider and watching festive films. We swapped gifts, had a good laugh, watched the Fellowship of the Ring and had a really lovely day! I would of posted a picture of the Christmas dinner, but I was SO hungry and it was SO good that it didn't stand a chance!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

Oh, Life...

Last week: I was made redundant...not very Christmassy.
I've gone through a variety of emotions about it all and i've decided to take Christmas off. I'm not going to worry about a new job until January. I'm spending this Christmas period working on my portfolio and trying to feel festive.
I have a couple of story ideas that i'm working on and i've come up with a fun promo pack. Once it comes to January i'm going to have to look for a "normal person" job... BOO... but for now i'm going to enjoy myself doing what I love most.

ALSO, I shall be opening up my etsy shop this week. I need to tweak it a bit but please keep your eyes peeled for some wonderful stuff going on sale!

I recently created this portrait for my friend Viv and thought that maybe, (seeing as it's christmas) some lovely people would like to commision me to draw them and their loved one as a gift to their other half...or maybe a nice portrait for your mother of her parents?

Basically: i'm open for commisions! So please don't hesitate! I'm a fast worker so will get the picture to you before christmas.

Temporary Tattoos...

Since my niece and nephews loved the colour in pages I made them, I decided that for christmas I would create an activity book for them. I have decided to use Rabbit and Glenn as the main characters for the activity book and have created some temporary tattoos of the characters for them.

A photo of me sporting one of the tattoos...

Rabbit and Glenn tattoos...

They aren't like the typical temporary tattoos from my childhood where you use water to apply the image...they're more like transparent stickers but they look good if I don't mind saying so myself. I think I will re-open my etsy shop soon and sell some sets of different characters and maybe even commision some.

Introducing a few new characters...

This is Rabbit...

...and this is Glenn who happens to be a lovely dragon.

He might seem a bit scary at first, but then he offers you a toasted marshmallow and a seat by the fire and you can't help but become friends with him.
