Custom portraits!

Having so much fun drawing your lovely faces at the moment! There's an updated listing for custom portraits in the shop. The couples portrait doesn't have to be a portrait of you and your partner - it could be you and your pet or a family member or a best friend. Or you could treat yourself to a fancy drawing of yourself! If you have any questions feel free to drop me an email.

Happy snowy Friday!

Patterns patterns patterns, round 2!

The patterns continue! Here are a few of my favourite so far and now I look at them, they've all been drawn on my ipad! Funny how we go through phases of creating things. Anyway I honestly don't think I can pick a favourite yet, but I'm loving the faces and some of the more splodgy ones. I'm nearly up to 40/100 (phew!). 100 day projects ARE HARD but totally worth it I have to admit...

New work

These 2 new faces are some of my favourite portraits to date I think. I love the simplicity (even though I have an inner urge just to smother them in patterns and clashing colours... I'm going to resist for now). I've decided to print them up nice and big and they're now in the shop if you'd like to snap up a copy. They'll only be available for a limited time though. If you're interested in purchasing the originals I'm selling them each for £120 + postage. Feel free to drop me a message! They're much brighter in person too! Lovely colours to work with... Here's a link to the prints in the shop!

Sketchbook time!

Hello friends! 

I thought it'd be nice to share some of my newest sketchbook doodles. I've been hard at work on little secret projects for people so haven't been able to share anything pretty with you but last week I managed to cram in a bit of sketchbook doodling and these are a handful of my favourite pages so far. I'm still drawing the faces - I can't seem to get enough of these ladies and I'm loving how they're slowly taking shape! I want to paint one up big to hang in my new bedroom but I'm waiting for that dream colour combo inspiration to hit.

The plants, oh be still my heart, those plants! Since I moved house I just want to fill the place with green plants. I only have very shallow window ledges (at the moment!) so they're gradually commandeering the dining chairs and stools, obviously... priorities and all that, ha! Anyway I'm just having to make do with some new plant drawings. I'm keeping them quite simple compared to some of the earlier designs but I'm tempted to paint some up big or possibly get some converted into risograph prints, what do you think??

more portraits..

It's been a busy week juggling house and studio time but I've only got one more sleep until the house move so fingers crossed the juggling won't be going on for much longer. Here are a few of my most recent portraits. I've been focusing on stripping the detail right back and playing around with colours, face shapes and shadows. I'm building up quite a collection so keep you eyes peeled next week when I start to add some new faces to the shop!
