Project: Year One

Welcome to my Year One. It’s been a while since I’ve posted and it’s because I was floundering. I didn’t know what I as doing, what I wanted or how to get there. May 31st – I was sitting on anther train on another long commute home from my new job. And I was listening the 3 Point Perspective podcast. This podcast is the best!…

Mini Masterpieces – GUSTAV KLIMT

The second mini canvas I will be painting this year in based on the artist Klimt. It is quite a leap from the abstract work of Rothko last month – to Klimt’s highly detailed and patterned works of art, but he has been one of my favourite artists for a while now and I couldn’t wait to attempt to copy one of his pieces of…

Endangered Inktober Zine

Why a Zine? I completed my first zine!  I am running my first marathon in April for the WWF and I need to raise £500. This might not seem like a lot of money to someone who has a large family, a big group of friends and 40 co-workers, but that isn’t my case! I also hate asking people for money – even if it’s…

Mini Masterpieces – MARK ROTHKO

I have an idea to paint mini masterpieces for a while, and I’m starting with American artist Mark Rothko. You know those tiny little canvas on easels you can buy in craft fairs? I got one for a present last Christmas and ever since then I’ve had the idea to paint little copies of my favourite paintings – or to even learn about new artists….

2019 Art Goals!

2019 is here and so are some new art goals. I love the start of a new year and thought it was the perfect opportunity to create a new avatar and think about my art goals for 2019. Last year I didn’t make any goals and got a bit lost and unfocused at time. I tried waaay to many personal monthly challenges, which all failed…

Inktober 2018 – Endangered Animals

My theme for Inktober 2018 was Endangered Animals. I used the Liquitex Muted Collection inks and chose a variety of animals of the WWF endangered list. As well as learning a bunch about these animals I am hoping to sell prints in the new year and give all proceeds to the WWF, as part of my charity Marathon I am running in April 2019. To…

One Week of Daily Videos

Last week I challenged myself to record, edit and post a video on YouTube every day for a week. It was hard, but I did it! Why? I had been feeling a bit unmotivated and lazy the last couple of months. I wasn’t drawing as much as I wanted, I hadn’t posted to this blog in weeks and I was halfheartedly making videos for YouTube….

Just another June body

March, April and May weren’t very good drawing months for me. I started March with the intent to partake in, and complete, the Procreate challenge (draw an image in procreate everyday) I think I lasted 11 days. I didn’t draw much the rest of March. I started April with renewed vigor. I was going to do Bybuns April Art Challenge for the first time and…

Birmingham Design Festival

A couple of weekends ago I went to the Birmingham Design Festival for a long weekend with my boyfriend. It was also my birthday weekend, which was pretty cool and gave me permission to buy every art supply I saw – because Treat Yo’ Self – ammiright? We got to see a lot of Birmingham as each talk was in a different part of the…
