Girls just want to have fun

Girl Code 101- if you're asked to help out for a hen do, you say yes. Full. Stop.

So  when i was asked if i could possibly draw on some bags a day or two before the do, I naturally said, yes and found myself sitting down to draw after a day at work and a night in the gym... but they came out just lovely. Here's a pic of the bags and the hens in all their henny, trekky glory.

To the moon and back...

After posting an image on my Instagram of a drawing I had been working on I received a commission for a piece. After a consultation and a few ideas sent over this was the chosen design which was drawn on the ipad, printed using a laser printer then embossed using a clear and a glittery gold finish. The final article was ever so shiny and I do believe the recipient was delighted. 

Here's a look at some of the other options that I drew up for consideration with a view to using the foiling machine again, i love gooollllldddd. If you scroll down, you can see how the embossing worked out.

Be Fearless...

I don't know if I'll ever be as fearless as I'd like to be. This fun project started with a quote, I felt like I needed to set my soul on fire or at least acknowledge what it was that made me truly feel alive... drawing obviously. (but Dave, if you're reading this it's you.)

So what started with a pen and paper soon developed into more. The initial drawing was done with a white pen on black paper, the simplicity of it has an elegant beauty.

Taking this design from pen and paper into a digital format was an interesting project. You lose some of the charm a pen give but you get so much more, too! I'm still not sure which one of these i prefer, I don't have to choose do I?
