We played with inks last night. This one looked kinda like a deer so I made it a deer :)January 20th with 8 notes | reblog
A couple of layered shell pieces using the watercolour prints I did the other day.

Watercolour silkscreen print onto calico. My teacher was pretty sure this wouldn’t work, but I gave it a go as an experiment and it turned out much better than expected- it really looks like it’s been painted onto paper! I think the only other way I’d get tone and detail like this onto fabric would be to use the digital printer, which takes way longer and is uber expensive. They only had lightweight calico in stock but I think something heavier will pick up more detail for next time. I’m pretty proud of myself for doing this; experimenting with techniques is something I really love and I haven’t had a mess around doing something new for ages!

Finished my fourth figure today. I thought the circular stitches would be immensely difficult, I used a stem stitch and they didn’t turn out too bad. There’s a few French knots dotted about the place as well. Halfway there now.
Shout out to the empty packet of Space Raiders at the side. As you can see my diet’s going well.January 7th | reblog

Squiggly little ammonite= baby kraken. I’d love to go to an aquarium and draw some real sea creatures one day.July 20th with 9 notes | reblog
I drew the view from my window at halls in Townhill (and made a jazzy background for it in Photoshop). Some people say Townhill campus is pretty scuzzy, but I don’t think it’s so bad. It sure is an interesting place, and I’m gonna be leaving it this weekend- this year has gone so fast!June 28th with 3 notes | reblog
