My Garden of Hedgehog- Colour Collective and Illustration Friday 27/04/18- Transformation.

A concept that I had been doodling for a while now. I originally imagined the spines being trees, but decided to draw them as flowers in a hedgehog garden for this week’s colour collective. It’s not very refined, I may edit it some more at a later date.

Flower

This is a flower that started to grow in my mum's garden during the 7 months she's been in care. They just sprung up one day, out of the cracks in the garden path. I know that it's some kind of weed, but I don't know what it's called.

Illustration Friday- Pink

Here's a quick (albeit late) scribble for Illustration Friday. I've been collecting textures and patterns that I can use in my work, trying to draw more, and thus improve.

Illustration Friday- Monkey

Last Friday's theme was/ is "monkey".
When we got married in February 2017 we went to Japan for our honeymoon. One of my dream destinations was the monkey hot springs to see the Japanese Macaques taking a bath, but we didn't make it. Maybe some day. I loved the Japanese mountains.

Colour collective- mink, and rat poison

I've had a lot of distractions in life recently, but I've also decided that I need to get my act together and be more productive. This is this week's colour collective challenge. Someone got me thinking recently about rat poison; rats are so naive, and it's quite ironic, the idea that they believe it to be food, and it ultimately kills them.

Pinecone Pattern

So I decided to add another pattern to my portfolio- this one's got a slightly wintery feel. My cousin's wedding had a pinecone theme, which was great- I've always loved collecting them on family walks in the autumn/ winter, and love their Nordic feel.

So Christmas is approaching!




Over the past few months I've created a series of activity sheets in an attempt to keep ticking on with illustration through a pretty low point in my life. I've made some cue cards and colouring sheets for my very young Chinese ESL learners.
