International Success Story

Remember my doilies?
Sure you do! Well I delivered most of my existing stock over to Nelly's Treasures in Cardiff Fashion Quarter this week. Where apparently they are being admired by one and all! Does this mean that I can officially say my work sells in two countries now?! It definitely means I can start working on all new stock... Awww yisssss!

He's A Sketchy Looking Tom

In my continuing quest to become a middling to good artist I attended a 'How To Sketch Animals Real Good' class on Saturday. We were allowed to draw any animal we liked; the obvious choice was my cat so that's who I drew! Here's a picture of him for reference:
Halloween Cat
N'awwww. Here's what I drew:
Intense. My art teacher said it had a mysterious cat expression and was 'terrifying', which I took in the only way I could (a compliment); it is kind of creepily just slightly out of proportion and odd. Still an improvement my stick lion.

Hola! I'm still slogging away at the art classes; we just started a new unit which is all about ourlovelyselves and last night's lesson was on screenprinting, so I thought I'd share my work since I loooved it!

Regular readers might have picked up on my love of all things 60s, Pop Art and psychedelic; I decided to base my print around that theme and chose Our George as my subject!
Our George
Aaand here's the result:
A Hard Day's Bright
Bad Trip
Since I'm pretty much a beginner at screenprinting they didn't turn out perfect, but I quite like the imperfections because they are interesting and sort of melty-like. You have to have mega strong arms and big piano hands to be a really great screenprinter; which is why I never want to get on the wrong side of Helen at Nelly's Treasures!
