happy new year!

Happy new year, happy new projects, happy new cheese belly, happy new dancing feet, happy new nap times, happy new studio days. This years already rushing along like an out of control train but I've decided what the hey, go with it. Here's a doodle from the weekend. Want to know a fun (that's debatable) fact about this picture? I accidentally turned her hair pink by mucking about with layer hues and saturations AND I DIDN'T EVEN NOTICE until it was on instagram... ha! A very happy accident. Another fun fact = I love her knees!

Anyway, hope you're all well rested and had a wonderful kick start to the new year and I cannot wait to see all the exciting things we get up to! Cheers! *clink*

(for those who like to know the deets - this doodle was done on my ipad using procreate)

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...

ABC

I'm surrounded by incredibly talented people and earlier this year my studio buddy, Cam, churned out a beautiful illustrated alphabet #36daysoftype - go take a peek over on her instagram (@camille_fleur) 

Here's my go at an alphabet. I haven't yet braved doing a different style for each letter BUT maybe I'll give it a go (some day)!  I've never found drawing text an easy process, the style tends to drift and the "font" at the end doesn't look very consistent. I'm not sure I have enough patience left to finish the task by the time I hit 'H'. Anyway I had a go... The shape of these letters are pretty much my default whenever I attempt lettering but to spruce things up I thought I'd add a few decorative touches and some shadows. What do you think?

Definitely work in progress!

COMIC time

Hello lovely humans!  

'Want to know a fun* fact about me? (*Debatable) I'm a diary keeper. It's nothing fancy and most definitely not a number one best seller but I started writing a few things down last October and I've managed to keep it up to this day - which is less than a year so it's not saying much! But it speaks volumes to me, ha! It started out as one of those 'line a day' journals and now it's turning into a 'line and a bit a day' journal. I try to pick out little moments in the day that either made me laugh, cry, think, pause or simply pat myself on the back. Some of the entries can literally be as dull as 'I hung up the washing', but sometimes that's exactly the kind of action that needs to be recognised because not every day can fill you with that sense of accomplishment. And also I figured in years to come (possibly) it might be actually quite interesting to look back and read about all those little moments...

ANYWAY! I thought it'd be fun to try and put a few of these little memories into pictures - I've always wanted to have a go at scribbling down some little autobiographical comics and thought what better place to begin. Who knows it might be a new little side project that takes off, no pressure, but for now it's refreshing to try something completely new.
