I had the privilege to work on Cat's lovely blog this week - what an awesome commission to receive! As soon as I read through her first email, I felt really enthusiastic about starting as her ideas were so different; I knew this project was going to be fun and unique. Cat basically wanted me to design a cute, superhero character based on her - a 'CatGirl' and to create a header with a comic book feel. She wanted her character to be sprinting away, with a cityscape in the background (I added the cat companion because I thought it'd be cute!). Cat also wanted a pattern to use as a background, so I created a few more versions of the character in various hero poses along with some beauty products and her awesome cat-eye sunglasses. I'm really pleased with how it turned out!
I think it's a little different to anything I've seen on other blogs, kudos to Cat for dreaming up something so awesome! I really hope you all like it too.
Here is the newest pup in my little collection! I spied this cutie on Pinterest and knew I had to draw her. Let me know if there are any other breeds you'd like me to illustrate and I'll see what I can do. D'aww!
I wonder if any of you are Star Trek fans? If not, feel free to ignore this post! I've been watching Deep Space Nine recently and decided to illustrate one of my favourite characters, Quark! Quark's sheer awesomeness really makes the show 100x better. Plus, I love Armin Shimerman as Principal Snyder in Buffy too - so underrated! I really want to make some more posters in this style; I've actually sketched out a Jon Snow inspired one already. I hope you like!
Another round of Etsy finds to share with you all! I really love browsing through Etsy and could probably spend many hours finding amazing things - it was hard to choose just nine items for this collage!
I've featured one of Josie's cute handmade cards from her new store, Frojo Designs. I'm so happy that Josie has decided to sell on Etsy, I really hope it takes off for her. Also, who doesn't appreciate a Clueless quote!
I can't get over how beautiful the feather print scarf is too - I think it's actually on back order now because of how popular it's been. It's easy to see why! I think it's one of those pieces that you'd end up treasuring forever.
I included the fun, floral temporary tattoo as I think it would make an awesome compliment to any festival outfit.
Oh, and the Milky Way top! I've been watching Cosmos recently and I love this quote.
This is one of those random illustrations that just pops into your head one day, so you decide to try and draw it out and see how it goes! I truly hope I've spelt all of the names correctly! I've always said that triceratops is my favourite dinosaur, which is yours?
This months blogger is the amazing Rebecca who blogs over at Winnipeg Style! I decided to choose her for July, as I've never seen a more colourful collection of outfits on any other blog, so I thought she would represent this summer month perfectly. Rebecca seriously has the best collection of bags and accessories too - I don't know where she finds such diverse and unique pieces! Her blog is always a joy to browse through and I never get bored of her stunning outfits. If you'd like me to draw you as part of this series, drop me a comment below and I'll see what I can do!
