In the Last Week

In the last week, I bought a bunch of Proteas.
Made some sketches of the Proteas I bought.
And made some cut out paper Protea flower cards.
And delivered a little bunch of new cards to Urban Cow Studio.

A Mouse in the House!

We have a new mouse in the house! Not the furry variety but a sleek shiny plastic one. It's funny how sometimes the smallest things on your desk like a new pen or pencil or eraser can inspire you to feel like working. I love my new yellow mouse!

Flowers on the Desk

I have pushed aside my little black and white drawing I have been working on to have some fun with the coloured pencils! I think my vision is going a bit blurry looking at fine black lines late at night so it might be time to swap back to colour for a while!

I have just flipped the calendar over to March. We are technically in Autumn now so I guess it is ironic to share this Spring image at this time. I have been working on a little series of Spring blossom illustrations that I started in the Spring last year when I was admiring the little blossom tree in our back garden. Spring is always a season filled with warmth, colour and hope. I love the idea of colour emerging out of the greyness of Winter and I also like to use the image as a metaphor to remind us that even in the difficult times and during the coldest months, we can be comforted by the knowledge that Spring always comes.
It also reminds me of all the wonderful Springs I experienced in Japan where the cherry blossoms are magnificent. For those in the Northern hemisphere, not long to go now - flowers will soon be blooming.
