New clocks

A range of my illustrated designs are now available as clocks through Society6! The perfect splash of colour will cheer up any dull wall, I'm rather in love...

Available in natural wood, black or white frames, the 10" unique clocks feature a high-impact plexiglass crystal face and a backside hook for easy hanging. Choose black or white hands to match your wall clock frame and art design choice. Available here with international delivery worldwide! X

The Postcard Project continues

Hope you're having a lovely weekend! We spend today on the island zoo in Helsinki, watching animals in snow and then went for pizza. Lovely day! 

Thought I'd add a few more images from the last couple of weeks of my Postcard Project. I left you on day seven, so here's day eight-fifteen, hope you like them. I'm painting them in gouache & watercolour on standard size blank postcards, in case you're interested! Just five more days to go sadly, I'm really enjoying having a bit of pressure on to get one painted and photographed everyday, especially knowing I have to get one done before the evening draws in and it's too dark to photograph sure to let me know which ones are your favourites! 

Day 8

Day 15

With each one I've loaded daily to my Facebook page is a sort of loose reasoning to why I've painted each one, so if you'd like to know more just head there! There really isn't time to deliberate what to get started on each day time-wise, so they're usually straight off the top of my head. I feel like I'm only just getting warmed up, and also pleased they seem to be getting better each day. I will probably just carry on after day 20, as I'm sure I'll be left completely stumped if I didn't paint every day now! ...perhaps one day off, ey? Will bring the final 5 to you in good time, have a wonderful weekend X

Postcards underway

I'm now on day 8 of my Postcard Project! I'm really enjoying the creative challenge, though my brain feels ploughed of ideas already with the pressure of uploading something every day. Still, it's quite a luxury I'm able to do this between the emails and other worky tasks. Must keep reminding myself! 

I'm trying to produce something aesthetically pleasing, but trying not to be too safe and same-y. I've already successfully tackled my human & dog illustrating fears this week, and it's really interesting to see how people have reacted to each day as I post them to my Facebook page. In fact, the ones I've halfheartedly started without thinking too much about what I'm doing and about colours have had the most positive response, though I've been reluctant to show anyone! Interesting! I think perhaps you really can be your own worst critic. Here's so far anyway, I'd love to hear what you think...
