Sketchbook Pages: 9

Since getting in to using my iPad for all my drawing and painting, I’ve hardly opened a physical sketchbook. Sounds kind of blasphemous coming from me – up until a year ago I was very much “make everything with real pencils and paint and paper alwaaaayss!”. It’s just so easy to pick up my iPad,Continue reading “Sketchbook Pages: 9”

Ohh Deer Pillow Fight Competition

I’ve entered Ohh Deer’s Pillow Fight Competition! This is something I’ve wanted to do for years but never felt confident enough.

Inktober 2018: Week 1

Last minute, I decided to try Inktober again this year. I made a point of not buying anything new, cutting up some watercolour paper and just doing it. This week I’ve focused on UK Folklore/mythology. Next week I’d like to improve my photos (I keep taking them after work at night), find my Sakura MicronsContinue reading “Inktober 2018: Week 1”

Paris: Illustrated packing list!

iPhone Wallpaper: Cats!

I’m going to have to slow down with the iPhone backgrounds… Maybe I should post 1 a month?? Let me know if you’re enjoying them!(Use the hashtag #megsfreethings to show me if you use them) These are all based on my babycat Zissou and his favourite things – scrunched paper and cardboard forever!

The Shape of Water (A Fan Art Piece)

I went to see The Shape of Water a couple of weeks ago at the super comfy Everyman in Chelmsford, and couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I did a weird thing for me and made some fan art. Maybe I just haven’t liked a film/ tv show/ book/ game enough to make art aboutContinue reading “The Shape of Water (A Fan Art Piece)”

Paintboxfox

Just before Christmas my friend Emily & I got talking about our struggles with creativity and trying to get back in to drawing & painting regularly. Out of this conversation and over the course of the next little while came a little project – Paintboxfox. We decided to collaborate on an ongoing joint *thing*. WeContinue reading “Paintboxfox”
