My First Commission and a few other bits!

It took a lot of willpower not to post these images before I gave this Illustration to the new owner! But I am a good girl and refrained until it was safely in it's new home. So now it is...here it is!


























Do you like it? It was all very enjoyable, and I hope more people will ask me to draw their houses for them! We should celebrate the lovely places we call home. I don't believe they are just bricks and mortar!

But this is the kind of thing I'll be making for the lucky winner of my giveaway....except it'll be your house! I wonder what it will look like...

I'm going to offer this kind of custom art on Etsy, so if you are interested in some yourself or as a gift, please do drop by. I'll be listing later. Or just email me.

As for my week, we have been having Puppy woes with little Marty. He's wearing a giant cone around his head and having great fun bashing into everything (including the backs of our legs!) Also his bellyflopping people has become that little bit more dangerous now, considering how huge the cone is!

I've been busy working on my 'Street Zine' which I am super excited about. Hopefully I'll get far enough to share that with you next week, but it will be a concertina zine with a full street Illustration on it, and I'll be printing around 50 of them, I think!

Also have a few other projects and exhibition invites which are very very very exciting, and I shall divulge more later! Oh and I received some super Mail Art through the post this week, which I'll blog about once my arty replies have been created, packed and sent off.

Happy Sunday!
