'Capable' - Illustration Friday

If only he was capable of telling his owners... but alas, he'll have to put up with the Sex Pistols for a while longer.

'Fluid' - Illustration Friday

A quick sketch this week! This time of year in the UK is always two things: rainy and cold! And working at a property management company in my spare time this means a nightmare. Leaky roofs and burst pipes makes some unhappy tenants :(

'Popularity' - Illustration Friday

Sheep likes the fact he has so many friends to talk to! Even though social networking has changed how people communicate, it's not all bad. I've reconnected with people from childhood and far away places through the internet, and blogging has changed my creative processes for the better. Although, nothing can beat a 2 hour phone call to catch up with a friend in my opinion :)

I am the Walrus...

Scrolling through some photos I took way back in October time at the Natural History Museum I found a snap of this super cute but MASSIVE walrus, and felt compelled to draw him. Whilst drawing, I got 'I am the Walrus' stuck in my head and it's been there ever since! Goo goo g'joob!

Super-fun Scribble Time!

Having a nosey at my blog reading list, I found this post by Amber at She Sure Is Sketchy (clickedy-click the link to see her original post) and I had had had to try it again for myself! So here are a few of my squiggles and scribbles...

I used to do this all the time as a kid, literally my school books were covered with them, and I'd get told off for 'graffiti-ing' on and in my books! So I gave it a go at work today and it was just as much fun as I remember it. Thanks Amber for sharing your post, it's made me feel 6 years old again :D

Ode to Birdie

We currently have a pheasant residing in our living room... to cut a long story short we rescued it from being flattened on the road and it's nowhere near well enough to go back into the wild :( poor thing! Once the suspected broken leg has healed and it's ready to fly again we shall set him/her free (it's only a youngster so the sex is still unknown, hence the gender neutral name 'birdie'!)

Birdie has the most beautiful feathers, and some of them fall out as he/she is grooming. So i scooped some up and decided to do some studies on them. Here's my first one which is just water-colour straight onto paper, I want to loosen up my painting so no pencil sketch first (eek!)

When Birdie has been grooming again I'll collect some more I think...
