The Red Shoes

Finally got round to painting this sketch I'd had on my desk for months! Gouache on paper, channelling the spirits of Mary Blair and Lorelay Bove. It's very nearly finished, but I'm probably going to be busy for a while yet, so here it is.

Fortnightly Drawing Challenge

Fan Art Fun Packs!

To celebrate the end of an era, this new fortnight is a fan art free for all.
Pick your favorite film, movie or motion picture and create your own interpretation to celebrate it.
Idiot Box and Pewter Game are also welcome.

Check out these awesome re-imaginings (by Ido Yehimovitz ) of some of the most iconic of cars.
There are more over at his Blog here.

And remember, the idea of this blog is to motivate and inspire you to pick up the pencil again, so no posting old drawings from your bottom drawer.

Get drawing, get involved and get together!

Fortnightly Theme: Mermaid

Hi All,

Well done to those who got something in this fortnight just past. It's been a very busy week, so I can't blame anyone for not submitting.

By request, this fortnights theme is the classic Mermaid.
But put your own spin on it. Get creative and mix it up.
Perhaps an underwater frog nymph, a Swamp Siren or make up your own super hero like Sea Urchin-Man!

Good luck and remember..

"Water is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty"

Hallow Queen

OK so here's my submission. Busy week this week, don't know how I fit it in. There's a rough brown paper sketch with Copic markers and gel pens. Then the digital drawing in Photoshop.
