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”

Inside My Sketchbook: 7

I started a new sketchbook. The Leuchtturm one I was using had been bugging me since I started it, so instead of beating myself up for not using it, and in turn hardly sketching at all – I opened one that had been waiting in the wings for a while now. Surprise surprise, I reallyContinue reading “Inside My Sketchbook: 7”

Inside My Sketchbook: 5

I’m not feeling very inspired to draw at the moment, but I’m trying to push through that and just draw whatever, even if I think its super boring/predictable! I’m also not getting on with this Leuchtturm sketchbook. It doesn’t like watercolour at all (!!!) and I’m finding it very limiting, and not in a bring-out-your-creativityContinue reading “Inside My Sketchbook: 5”

Inside my sketchbook: 4

Sketchbook update… I’ve been drawing a lot more lately, and having more ideas for finished art pieces – something that hasn’t happened for a while! Some quick messy warm up sketches A self portrait – I found out the hard way that this paper doesn’t like watercolour. It bobbles up underneath my paintbrush – so,Continue reading “Inside my sketchbook: 4”

Inside My Sketchbook: 3

Anyone else having trouble signing in to their Flickr accounts? I haven’t had any issues until today, beginning to wonder if its something to do with the security breach they experience at the end of December! *hyperventilates* I really wanted to make a blog post today about whats been going on inside my sketchbook forContinue reading “Inside My Sketchbook: 3”

Inside My Sketchbook: 2

Some pages from my sketchbook, drawn over the last couple of weeks. Since finishing Inktober I am definitely drawing more, although not quiiiite every day. The above will hopefully be available as a print in my etsy shop soon. I’m trying to tie together a new website and etsy re-launch at the same time, but we’llContinue reading “Inside My Sketchbook: 2”

Some Sketches & the Thing With Calling Yourself an Artist

I feel like the term/description “artist” is thrown around quite a lot, especially now with social media platforms like Instagram, where you can share your artwork in an instant. It makes me feel uncomfortable because anyone can just put “I’m an artist” in their about me/profile and that’s that. Instantly – they’re an aaaaartist. AlthoughContinue reading “Some Sketches & the Thing With Calling Yourself an Artist”

Inside My sketchbook

A few pages from my sketchbook. I’ve set myself the goal of posting two illustration/painting related posts a month on here. This could be simply pages from my sketchbook, sketches done on my iPad, or entire finished pieces. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot, but I figured if I start off small IContinue reading “Inside My sketchbook”
