Build-your-own Christmas cards!

Hello my lovely loves!

It's that time again! And this year I'm particularly proud of my cards, because I've created a card/craft kit hybrid. I always struggle if either I want to give a gift but can't afford it, if someone is in that grey area between card or gift recipient, or if they live abroad and sending a full gift is hella expensive.
So... craft kit cards!

The two designs allow you to send a flat A5 card to your recipient, and then they're able to cut out and create 3D models of either a gingerbread house or a Christmassy carousel!

The inside of the cards have instructions (and directions to find YouTube tutorials I've created, if preferred) and decorated space for your message.

The back of the card is also a backdrop to your little models - and making it won't destroy your message!

Cards are available on my Etsy shop here, and you can check out the video tutorials here (gingerbread house) and here (carousel).

The cards are available in singles, six packs and ten packs, but the gingerbread house ones are more limited than the carousel so they're not available in multipacks on their own, only in mixed design packs contains both designs.

As ever, 10% of the profits of the cards will be going to Crisis at Christmas, to give much needed support to the homeless.

I hope you like them as much as I do!

Waterdancer

Hello my lovely loves!

I've been keep up with Game of Thrones this season and OMG, I'm enjoying it so much. I won't say much about what's been happening but event made me think of the amazing Syrio Forel, and I realised I'd never actually shared the finished image I did of him.

So here he is.

Geeky Family Portrait or The Legend of Zeldaura!

Hello my lovely loves,

Today there's a bit of a throwback piece, because I completely forgot I hadn't shown it anywhere.
It was made for my good friend, Josh, and his lovely girlfriend, Laura, as a present for her, so after completing it in secret it just got stowed away in my files and forgotten about.

I took some liberty with the costumes, especially for Laura's Zelda, because no one can properly kick arse on a regular basis in a floor length gown, or with vital areas open to the air.

But behold! The Legend of Zeldaura!

Cause and Effect Magazine piece

Hello my lovely loves!

I've been sitting on this one for a while so it's amazing that I finally get to show it to you! My piece for Cause and Effect magazine.
Amnah, the editor, is also a sufferer of ME and contacted me about doing a comic to illustrate how it feels to have it.
I'd had a little idea in the back of my head for a while, so this was the perfect opportunity to realise it.

You can buy Cause and Effect here. It's a limited edition hardcover book, and you get to choose your own cover design from a selection of three, which is awesome. (I went for the pink vintage ladies - it reminds me of a Wes Anderson movie!)

Without further ado, here's my piece.

Christmas cards 2018

Hello my lovely loves!

It's time for this years Christmas cards to go on sale! This year there are two designs, one for cat lovers, and one for dog lovers. Or for those that loves both... both!

The dog one is my own spin on the "Dachshund through the snow" pun (man, I love puns), and the cat one is a play on the christmas folklore, Krampus - or Krampuss! (I told you I love puns.)

Those eagle-eyed viewers among you may notice a familiar model has been used for one of them...

Cards are A6 this year, are blank inside, and as usual I'll be giving 10% of the profits from the cards to Crisis. Because no one should be homeless, especially not at Christmas.

There'll also be free UK shipping on cards from now on, and discounted shipping for international customers!

Head here to my Etsy shop to get buying!

Phryne

Hello my lovely loves!

Just a little one today - I've been slowly working on more detectives after my Sherlock and John, and this time we have the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher, from Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries.

You may remember that I was her last Halloween, and this year Mum contacted Every Cloud, the makers of MFMM, and arranged a lovely surprise for me.
As I couldn't go to our Gatsby fundraiser (which was 1920's themed mainly because of Miss Fisher), Every Cloud TV sent me a signed photo from Essie Davis (Phryne) and Ashleigh Cummings (her companion, Dorothy), a hand cream branded from their upcoming movie (which I'm VERY excited about) and a beautiful limited edition silk scarf. Who could ask for anything more?

After that it felt only right for Phryne to be my next detective.

Character Design Reveal

Hello my lovely loves!

I've been doing a little character design for a friend's project. I can't tell you too much about it, but here are the character sheets I've done. Hopefully I'll have more for you in the future!
