Homeward Bound



Hey guys I am moving cities in just over a month, so need to close my etsy shop so i can get prepared and pack and organise my life.
It’ll be open for one more week and until then you can get 15% off your order with the coupon code: HOMEWARD.
This doesn’t include patches, but does include everything else! Even originals.
I’m not sure how long it will take me to get up and running once i’m in my new town, so it could be a little while before you can buy prints and things off me. I will probably leave up little things like postcards and patches, because i can pack them and post them without taking up too much room.
And in case you were wondering, I am moving because I’ve been offered a tattoo apprenticeship in another city! so will be running off to live my dreams and draw every day. This is super amazing exciting.

New Postcards & New happenings

Things have been a bit manic the last month, I took two weeks off to visit my family, which involved minimal internet use (my own decision) and then since I've been back I've been catching up on work at my day job. Somehow many little jobs were ignored while i was away so it's been work + sleep the last few weeks. I've been doing some serious re-thinking of my career moves and things are moving in a positive direction. I may have some very exciting news in the next few weeks but i don't want to jinx it by jumping the gun and making any announcements just yet..


In the mean time I've just had some lovely new postcards delivered, and they are now up in my etsy store.





I've listed them all individually rather then sets as i normally do, so you can pick and choose a bit more. Did you notice my gorgeous new fountain pen making an appearance? It was a birthday gift from my partner, I'm really enjoying doing more writing and having a lovely pen makes it much more special.

Sketchbook.. Friday?

I don't care what day it is, here's some drawings.





I've started work on some larger pencil drawings and have been really enjoying it.. i forget sometimes that things don't have to be painted in order to be finished. My scanner is still out of action (or rather my computer) so still no scanned finished works..

New Zine

I actually finished this some months ago, in time for Wellington zinefest. But here it is finally photographed and for sale.

Time-lapse

video

I made this little time-lapse of me drawing because I really like watching other people drawing. It was longer but I just made it on my little phone which decided to go to sleep and cut off the end.

My big computer, which is attached to my scanner, is suffering through death-throes right now which means i can't scan anything. Yes, i could plug my scanner into my laptop but i can never edit paintings properly on here so I don't think it's worth bothering. But i promise i have been painting and someday soon things will be scanned.

Sketchbook Sunday (at last!)

My excuse for not blogging is that it's been the Holidays. Actually i only got a few days off but, you know, laziness is in the air. I got to spend Christmas with my family in Dunedin but I was straight back to work for New Years. Luckily i'm not much of a party animal so it wasn't a huge loss.

I have been drawing a lot, despite this bout of laziness, so i have plenty to show from my sketchbook. Very little finished work, but that's not what sketchbooks are about anyway.



 I've been making some paste-ups with my super cool friend Pinky Fang, it's really fun working with acrylics after so long.

Sketchbook Sunday

It's been a pretty good drawing week, probably because i'm so busy and have actual work i should be doing. I'm off to Dunedin to visit my parents next week, which i am so happy about. Feeling very over-worked and wrung out lately.


Everybody still likes owls, right?
 


This is the preliminary sketchbook scribble plan for the painting I've started drawing up below. I've started painting it now but sadly i think i liked it better as a black and white drawing..
