I’m trying to keep up with number 6 on my list (my missions for 2011). I’ve spent 2 days doodling in a sketchbook and thought I’d pick out some of my favourites and share them with you. I’m a little bit addicted to that chevron pattern now…
Archive for March, 2011
It’s been a busy week and a bit and I’m sorry but this post could turn into a bit of a brute – a friendly brute though, I promise. Firstly there’s a new print in the shop! (just scraping the March deadline) Pictured above – it’s a print of a new painting I finished the other day. Based a bit on the pocket full of black cats book cover. The print measures 7 x 9 inches and is ready for framing. Priced at £10. Bargain :)
Not only is there a print but there’s also a new(ish) tote bag in the shops! Originally the Tweet Tote was exclusive to the I dress myself website but I’m pleased as punch to announce it is now available in my etsy shop too! Horray!
Last week saw the launch of Nottingham’s new SWITCH studios. It was full of painters and doodlers hijacking the freshly painted white walls. I took a couple of pictures from the night but they aren’t that great (it was dark and I was tired) – I’ll make it one of my missions to pop back when it’s quiet and snap some more. For now here are a couple of the finished piece. (The plug socket on the wall gives you a better idea at what sort of size it is)
And finally – A massive MASSIVE thank you to everyone who bought a little something from the shop this weekend as a way of donating to the Japan Tsunami Appeal. I’ve decided to donate all of the money from those sales to the cause rather than just the 50% I originally had in mind. Hope you all had a lovely weekend :)
We all know the last week has been horrific, seeing and hearing all about the damage caused by this brutal earthquake and tsunami. I’ve dug deep into my pockets and donated. Here’s a link to donate to the British Red Cross if you’re interested, or you can click on the big red dot above.
I’ve also announced that over this extended weekend (from now until Monday 21st) 50% 100% of every sale in my shop will be donated to the Japan Tsunami Appeal hosted by the Red Cross. Share the support.
Thank you, x
