2014 – my blog…

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

So it’s the last day of 2014 and I’ve escaped for an hour or so to put together a final post for this year. I started my blog in February after reading so many inspiring blogs of like minded designers/illustrators. I really enjoy the randomness of what I post and I like the fact there are no restrictions with subject matter, media etc. It has become a great way to meet other designers through various other social media sites and also to get my work seen by others. I have been designing freelance for over 10 years and for so long had admired other peoples work but felt I was totally anonymous so by using this I have been able to showcase my work and fortunately it has led to lots of exciting new design work and commissions. I hope I continue to develop my work in 2015, my youngest son starts school in 2015 so i will finally have more time to dedicate to my work!

So this really shows the random nature of my blog -from cats to typewriters to vikings, birds, telephone boxes -here is a little montage – thanks so much for reading and enjoy tonight! xxx

I am only finding a tiny bit of time to do anything creative during these couple of weeks (in between all the drinking and eating..) I did these tonight just quickly experimenting with some of my illustration on fabric with stitch and buttons, my characters are now clothed x

In between christmas and new year ….

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

I am in that kind of strange time where christmas is done and we are waiting for new year. Spent the day finding space for all the new christmas toys my children got and ended up clearing up my desk in the hope I can find some time to do some work – threw lots of things away and now have a clear desk, then ripped up some paper and made these… x
