A very Star Wars birthday

Hello my lovely loves!

Here's a couple of pieces I did for my friend's 30th birthday!
His girlfriend has whisked him away to Prague, but he's given me permission to show these on the interwebs.

The Jedi one is my favourite, but I had to give a Chewbacca one a try, because Chewie is his nickname. Turns out it's pretty hard to make a portrait look like someone, but also like a Wookie.
Ah well.

Money raised!

Hello my lovely loves!

My Christmas card sales for the year are now closed and it's been really successful.
Thanks to everyone who bought cards or donated! You've helped to raise enough for two tickets to Crisis at Christmas, and a little left over for the everyday kitty.

Cards on sale!

Hello my lovelies!

My Christmas cards are now on sale on my Etsy shop. In fact, I've not had time to write this post because they've been selling so fast! I'm afraid all the 10 packs are gone, as well as all the angel-only 6 packs.
There are still plenty of 6 packs of mixed designs, and Home Alone cards in both 6 packs and 10 packs. There are still single cards available in both designs. Head on over to snap some up before they go :)

There's also a separate listing for those who wish to give an added donation to Crisis (on top of the 10% of the profits I'll already be giving.)

Christmas Card designs 2016

Hello my lovelies!

Introducing this year's Christmas cards designs. This year's Christmas cards are a little bit different. Instead of just having a design on the front, I've created two wrap around designs to make the best use of the available space!
The cards are square, and contain a message inside.

10% of the profits will be going to a homeless charity, Crisis, so you'll be doing some good as well as getting some pretty awesome cards.

I'm just waiting for he proofs to come back so I can make any minor adjustments needed for printing, so hopefully by the end of the month, these bad boys will be available to buy, both separately and in mixed packs.
One is a play on the traditional hymn "Hark the herald angels sing" and the other a loving homage to Home Alone.

Christmas Card Sneak Peak

This year, provided all goes well, I'll be doing two Christmas Card designs. Here's a sneak peak at one of them.
(Points for getting the reference.)

Dear Ethan project


This is some of the work I did for a memorial book as a gift for the family of a friend who passed away last year from cancer. Nicky was pretty bloody amazing so me and some mutual friends decided to celebrate that.  The book was all based around the Avengers as Nicky was a massive Marvel fan.
If you want to hear more of the backstory head on over to my ME/CFS blog, Super Pooped. If not... enjoy!

Title page

(Dale, who was my fellow book created, was very excited)

Avengers themed backgrounds for the pages

Illustrations to go under the page numbers

Illustrations for individual stories... of which was a bit rude. This was a sticker to go over Ethan's copy of that story.

The final illustration. He's just like his Dad.
