A loose line  (Am I the only one that giggles at that term?!)


sophies choice

when your art imitates life....this is me in my kitchen realising I need to start making some Sophie's choice decisions on what makes the postcards for the book fairs this year... *stirs tea endlessly*


Book Cover

Over on twitter theres a link going on where you get nominated to post a book cover with no reason or explanation.  Off the top of my head I chose this one :)



Spent this evening listening to Prof Lauren Stewart’s inaugural lecture @GoldsmithsUoL The hubby got a cracking name drop at the end for his PhD work in upper limb rehabilitation research for stroke survivors @GoldsmithsMSP and I managed some doodling

100 Years

Today's warm up doodle. Here's to those women who gave everything to pave the way for us to have a vote. 1918 saw women over 30 who met minimum property requirements get a vote. The Equal Franchise Act 1928 meant all women over 21 had the right to vote on equal terms with men.




These two are reflecting the kinda day I am having thanks to a head cold!


Cloud Sunday

Sundays shape and colour is cloud like, a little bit grey and bluey. :)


Circle Friday

Following on from Tuesday Triangle, here's Circle Friday! Fridays are yellow and circle shaped, as are pentagons, the number five and the word socks. :) (And circles are happiest when naked too)


Tuesday Triangle

So Tuesday, Triangle the number Three and the letter T are all the colour green in my mind. Here's a green triangle for Tuesday. (To note, a square the number four, one and Wednesdays are Blue. Friday is yellow, as is a circle.)


Blue Monday

I dunno about you, but when I read that it was #BlueMonday today this is the image that sprang to mind of what that looks like... 


pattern making!

One more pattern experiment made up from some bits in my sketchbook!

pattern making!

I'm going to experiment with patterns today! I finally found a tutorial that makes sense to me as the images are really helpful so you don't have to do much reading, which is where I was getting lost with other tutorials :)  Hope this is the first of many, it's quite satisfying!


Artist block!

My head has been taken over by the cotton headed fluffy mind blank. It's vacant expression has been piercing my mind all day, causing me to stare into space and making me unable to do what I wanted too today! *huffs*


Book series obsession!

So in 2017 I came late to the #harrypotter party and then got through all of the #throneofglass series! I've started on the #redqueen books for the beginning of 2018, but would love some other book recommendations to get stuck into/obsess about if you have any :)


Snow White

Re-working and roughing up an old image for a favourite client ☺️ first ideas until they tell me otherwise what Snow White looks like 😆
