A Little Stranger


This is a short and sweet post this week as lots of the things i’ve been up to this week i can’t post pictures of just yet, i’ve been super busy with not so much time for my personal projects. I’ve also been working on a Christmas instructable for Monday that i’m *really* excited about sharing!! :) Also my camera memory card died so i didn’t take any pictures last weekend apart from the ones at Eddie Izzard, woopsie!


This Week

Hang on, how is it December already? Bit of a wake up call that Christmas is just around the bend! Lots of exciting things have been happening this week in Holly-land, here’s pictures of some of it…



Heres a couple of quick snaps of some paintings i’ve been working on the last few weeks. They’re all acrylic on paper, i work in a sketchbook because its easy for me to carry around, the one in the pictures is A3 i want to see if i can get a bigger one!

I am still moving house and working on some fun things that i will post pictures of soon. But for now here is yet another photo of a painting :P

Magic tree (more…)

Im in the middle of moving house and sewing studio so things have been a bit slack on the toy making front. I’m working on a toy for a halloween show in new york and i will get some pictures as it starts to take shape, its a bit different to what ive been doing before but *fingers crossed* it should turn out nice!

I did this earlier this year but i’m not sure exactly when.

This is another few from a few months ago but its been something thats been in my mind for a long time. I am playing around with it as a tattoo idea. The pencil sketches are very pale but i want to paint these over and finish them soon!

I finished this little guy last night, ive created a new little gallery in my flickr to put pictures of my sketchbook. I have only just got into painting in the last year after i was inspired the miniature portraits section at the Victoria and Albert museum. I wanted to learn how to use oils but ended up using acrylic paints (as i have zillions left over from when i used to paint Warhammer figure *ahem*) and they’re easy to cart about in a little box so i dont have to be tied to a desk! I should really scan my older sketchbook too, its funny how my painting has come on.
