Blogs I like...The Magpie Girl

Thank you all for your lovely responses on my Gem Fatale illustration post - I was really pleased that you liked them.

Todays blog is The Magpie Girl. Vicki has a great blog, and always wears the cutest outfits - like this candy-stripe dress! I would urge everyone to go and have a browse :)

I have a couple of other blogger illustrations in mind - so keep a look out for them, and thank you for sharing your fav blogs too!

Blogs I like...Gem Fatale

This is a little feature that I've been thinking about starting for a while. I'm going to be doing some blogger portraits of some of my favourite blogs - I'm sure you will all be very familiar with most of them, but I still thought it would be a nice idea.

I've been reading Gem's blog for ages! She seems really friendly, and always has the most awesome nail art.

I would be interested in finding out who all your favourite bloggers are too, so let me know :)

This is just a little portrait inspired by Lindsey Wixson. I really like her - I think she looks very doll-like.

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm having a little sale over at my Etsy shop. So if you are looking to pick up a bargain, then check it out. There's a couple of original paintings on there at the moment, and they are all pretty cheap!

I will also be announcing the giveaway winner next week (probably Monday/Tuesday) so remember to look out for that :)

Another competition...

Hey all, I just wanted to say thanks for all of your lovely comments on my last post! It means alot that you take the time to look at my work and I really do appreciate it.

This piece is for another competition I found over at Talenthouse (I really love this site lately). This time it is to design a limited edition poster for Rod Stewart's gig in Las Vegas.

I hope you all like it :)

My First Sleeping Beauty

This is fairly different to what I usually do, but it's for a competition I saw on the Talenthouse website. The brief is to design a poster for the children's production of 'My First Sleeping Beauty' for the English National Ballet.

I tried to make it look as appealing to children as possible, whilst still capturing the essence of the classic story. If you want to support me, just click here.

Let me know what you think :)

Blue streak

Firstly I just want to say hello to all my new followers, and thank you for entering my giveaway!

This is a mini canvas I have been working on lately, and I will probably put it on my Etsy shop. This was done in acrylic and pen, which made a cool change from just working in watercolour. Sometimes, it feels so awkward to go back to painting with acrylic, but I feel as if I'm getting used to it now.

Let me know what you think :)

Sucker Punch

I don't know if you have seen this film, but I thought the concept was kind of interesting, and visually it looked awesome. This illustration is based on the 'Baby Doll' character, so I hope you all like it!

I just wanted to thank everyone that has entered my giveaway - I was so surprised to see so many entries! There's still time to enter, so I do hope you will.
