... for the radio silence recently! I have a new project in the pipeline, and have been so busy working on that that I've not had a chance to blog. I don't want to reveal the surprise yet, but I shall as soon as I feel I'm ready to share! Let's just say, it's going back to my roots in terms of style and I'm rather excited about this!

Until next time....

The countdown is on...!

AAARRRGGGGGHHH! There are only 55 days left until our due date! Unfortunately I've had to take some time off from my full-time job as I've not been feeling too great, but I have managed to do a little piccie of some of the bits and bobs we've got for the bump so far!


Thought I'd see what some of the elements looked like in greyscale - I likey!

Now I think I need to start thinking about my hospital bag...!

Paper Planes

Hello! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend! 

I've been looking through my drawings recently and realised that I haven't drawn enough boys - so I made it my plan this weekend to change that! I'd love to know what you think!

In other news, we have finally got some allotment goodies! Lots of potatoes, spinach and some asparagus! All to go together with roast chicken tonight - mmmm can you hear my belly rumbling already!? The runner beans are looking good too but need a little more time, and I can't wait to dig up the garlic bulbs we planted last year!

The world's teeniest potato!

...80 days to go!

OMG! I have 80 days until my due date! Arrrrrrr! 

Ok, I know that apparently only 5% of women actually give birth on their due date - but still! I'm feeling equal measures of huge excitement and absolute terror! And breeeeaaattthhheeeee

Boiler Man Part 2...

So I was waiting so long, I managed to draw another girly! 

PS. Boiler man not coming today at all now! Boooo!

Boiler man

So, whilst waiting for the boiler man this afternoon I thought I'd do a little sketch. Which turned into inking up the little sketch. Which then turned into scanning it and tidying it up in Photoshop. And then into colouring it. Adding shadows and highlights. Adding a frame. And a pattern. 

And the boiler man still isn't here.

OK, well I'm not off to bed just yet seeing as it's only 4.30 in the afternoon (tempting though!) I've had this doodle in my sketchbook for a while now and I thought it was time I spent some time to bring it to life. I'm still not convinced its 100% finished... but it's certainly close to being finished. Is it finished?! It's one of those when you just don't know when to stop! And I think my eyes might have gone square from the time I've spent on my computer today, so I should probably call it a day!

After days of feeling like I've forgotten how to draw and hundreds of pieces of paper being scrunched up and thrown away, I've finally managed to finish a piece that I am happy with! I think my problem was over-thinking things too much, so with some background music on yesterday I was able to just switch my brain off and doodle. Seems to have worked for me this time at least!

This little lass has been in my sketchbook for a while, and I thought it was time she saw the world! Any name ideas?
