day twenty one, two and three. whoops.


"where you work"

"favourite photo of you"

okay so i have been a TAD bit slack recently, but i just couldn't find the time to get on to post recently.
been so very busy, so today i have a triple dose.

"favourite photo of you" this one was real tricky. since i had been using all illustrations,
how was i going to illustrate my own favourite photo, and more important how was i going to pick a favourite photo? this was the toughest one yet. so i picked one of my recent fave photos, three cheeky monkeys AKA myself and the wonderful designers i work with. SNAP.

"where you work" this illustration is meant to represent the wide variety of things i am able to design at my work, and also the freedom i am allowed as a designer. but most of all, the happy environment i work in, and the hilarious girls that surround me.

and last but not least "shoes" - these are not a real pair of shoes i actually own.
although i do own quite a few pairs of converse's. today at work whilst waiting for things to save, i found my self drawing triangle patterns, so triangle patterned converse's i guess?

happy thursday! x

simply, my handwriting.

day nineteen. "something i hate"

"something i hate"

of course this had to be food related.
i'm sure there are a lot of you out there who won't agree with me on this one,
but i hate it. pineapple is great on it's own, but there is no need to put it on your pizza.
sweet and savoury are two separate flavours, and should never be mixed.
so you can have your apricot chicken. YUCK.

day seventeen and eighteen. "time and drink"

"drink and time"

a double shot yet again. eek. and another one on it's way.
time was a little tricky, as i had already done a couple of similar themed ones, 
but tick tock worked nicely. drink was easy, inspired from one of my favourites. alice of course!

"something new"

apparently you learn something new everyday.

day fourteen and fifteen. "heart and phone"

"heart and phone"

okay so i'm doubling up again.
my apologies, but i have just been so busy lately, and now i'm playing catch up!
here's "heart" and "phone".

day twelve and thirteen. "inside your closet and blue"


"inside your closet"

today is two for the price of one.
so i didn't post on time for yesterday's "inside my closet", but here it is.
i love shopping, i love fashion, i love clothes.
so as you can imagine, my closet is very full.
everytime i bring something new home, mum always replies with 
"did you buy coat-hangers for that?"

and my second illustration is in dedication to one of my most favourite blue items.
my diana mini. one of the cutest blue treats i own.

day eleven. "makes you happy"

"makes you happy"
it's simple, i think.

day ten. "self portrait"

"self portrait"
i must admit, the most tricky one yet.
i have never been one for drawing realistic perfect illustrations,
so although to some this might not actually look like my self portrait,
i assure you it is me. a lovely mixed bag.

day nine. "front door"

"front door"
knock knock..
who's there?
according to my sister, i had to have a red door.
so here is your red door.

day eight. sun.

well looking back a couple of posts and i realised i had sort of already 
done this theme in one of my most recent prints.
i really enjoyed making it, so i used some of the elements
to create a new version, in the same style.
like the other print, all the elements are hand-drawn.
sunshine makes me happy.

you are my sunshine.

tonight i didn't want to stop drawing.
i just kept sketching all sorts of elements, some of which have ended up in this bright print.
i can't wait to continue making patterns with these quirky little drawings, 
so stay tuned for some more sunshine.

day six. "dinner"

tonight's dinner was an absolute treat.
i really did enjoy;

welcome to tiny woods.

welcome to tiny woods.
another one of my collections just released for kaisercraft.
it's a 'cute-sy' woodland inspired range, filled with quirky forest animals, tiny trees
and mushrooms. i was really happy with the colour palette, and really enjoyed
hand-drawing all the tiny woods characters. my favourite is the deer.

day five. "10am"

today at 10am, i was definitely hitting the snooze.
sleeping in on a sunday morning.

day two. "words"

i like mistakes.

day one. "your view today"

"your view today"
i was stuck in la la land counting sheep.

challenge accepted.

so. i have accepted a february challenge, inspired by fatmumslim's february photo a day, and two of my lovely friends clare and jules. it all begins here, however we have put a little twist on it. instead of a photo, i will be posting an illustration/print a day, according to the themes. a lot of work, but i lot of fun i think. so here goes.
