'reverse' - illustration friday

going the wrong way? reverse!

this weeks IF progress

the topic for illustration friday this week is 'reverse', so i thought about wrong directions and having to go back on yourself (which career-wise i seem to be doing a lot of a the moment!) so a compass encapsulates this well i reckon. colour and general fiddling with to be done tonight hopefully.

valentines idea #1

valentines day already?! argh!
so to avoid the extortionate prices of cards in the shops i'm doing what i always do, making my own card for my wonderful boyfriend :) this is the first idea i've had which i'm liking because its not too lovey-dovey (robots are always going to be cute though, but this can't be helped) i'll rearrange them in a line so it looks like a little sequence. let's see what else i can come up with, with less than two weeks to go... hmm.

oh ebay how i love thee...

the wonderful sublime stitching company recommended a certain transfer pen when doing your own embroidery designs, and through ebay i have ordered said pen from the grand ol' U.S of A. so when it arrives i can do loads of my own designs and embroider them! exciting stuff! this is my first design, i think it'd look fab framed with loads of colour threads etc :)
