Stolen Moments in June

 

Some quick stolen moments from this month so far
Can’t wait until we’ve moved and are settled in to our new routine
We get the keys to our apartment on Saturday!

I painted this little bee just over 3 years ago
and someone finally bought it on my Etsy shop
it will be kind of sad to see her go, but she’s going to a beekeeper
so it’s the perfect match

Early May

In the first few weeks of May I’ve snoozed on pebbled beaches,
had days out with friends,
exercised more,
somehow managed to avoid getting sunburn,
(or a tan for that matter)
and Illustrating little things I wouldn’t normally for my new job (!!!)
Its nice to be branching out and challenging myself

Hello, March!

Turns out this is a monstera heavy post…

It’s already the 5th of March (!!!) Howww??
This month started off with me going a little stir-crazy cooped up in the house because of the snow. It did make me draw a lot though, so I shouldn’t complain. There’s already another iPhone wallpaper on its way, and I managed to get a regular monthly illustration job, so things are looking up in Megland!

I suppose I have a couple of “goals/things I want to do” for March:
1. Release Paintboxfox’s first zine
2. Get the ear piercings I’ve been thinking about getting for months
3. Start work on my portfolio website

Through the snow and cold, somehow my monstera has produced 4 new leaves from where they were chopped off (due to an accident involving my cat a few months ago). Yay Mildred!

I’ve finished all my drawings for the zine, and am partaking in #marchmeetthemaker on instagram – if you are taking part too, let me know!

And I’ve had my first successful charity shop rummage in a while – green marble coasters. It feels like everything in my life right now is telling me I’m a fan of green…

Hello, February


I can’t believe we’re already pretty much halfway through February…

The first week or so was spent finishing up an illustration commission and hanging out with my little shadow:




We also visited Nymans Gardens & Brighton over the weekend. We go to Lucky Beach for breakfast almost every time and it never fails so disappoint:




Also, yep, I’ve changed the name of this blog. I’m in the middle of designing my portfolio website and wanted to separate this out a bit. Nothings final in terms of platform yet, but the name definitely is!
