Work in Progress

I've been busy this week drawing out little characters in an ugly, cute fashion- mainly rabbits, cats, owls, little creatures and girls. I've listed one or two items in my new etsy shop- mostly drawings, illustrations and aceos. I'm not planning on opening a Folksy shop for the time being as its one step at a time and I have a lot of work ahead of me. I really enjoy the layout of etsy with the activity information and the system that is set up when people heart you. Most of my work has been in gouache with pen and ink but I'm also exploring using some acrylic. The pictures below show a couple of my drawings.

The photo below shows my working space at the moment. The house is starting to look like a studio and its been a long time since any food has been eaten off the dinner table!


  1. Do you mean people do eat off their dinner tables? I cant see mine below the work in progress projects :o)

    love the new blog
    {Dab and a dash.}

  2. Ooh, love your table! Mine has a part for dd to eat, and I'm usually eating on the other side, but food on my foot as I'm looking at the laptop all the time,lol. And when I'm painting, shift the laptop a bit, so that I can still see it, and replace it with paints and stuff... I have a seperate working table for my jewellery though...
    I love the new blog too, can't wait to see more : )

  3. Well done for launching your new blog and shop!Love the name and new work of course..especially love the top image,Cassandra:)xx

  4. Lorna, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one! :0)thanks for the compliment on the blog x

    Beata, you sound as bad as me, its easy for materials to take over and I always think whats the point in tidying them away when you just need to get them out again! x

    Cassandra, thanks for the positive feedback, its great to hear, the top image is one of my favs so far too x

  5. Exactly! LOL
    Let me try this again, so the food is not on my foot, but on my lap! LOL (note to self: try to concentrate on the thing you are doing for a second, and continue with the other one after you are done!!!)

  6. My dining table was taken over by art products over 3 years ago, it's not been eaten at since ;)
    We're all lap eaters around here now!!

    Loving your work :)
