I had a sudden urge to make a box. And I wondered, what to make a box for?

Came up with the idea to create packs of postcards in a little giftbox. This is a prototype... And I'm giving it away for free!

This painting was created practically right after the one of Greenwich, but I kept forgetting to scan it. So here it is. It's mixed media... Tissue paper, gel mediums, watercolour, acrylic and pen.

Both it and the one of Greenwich are available as prints on Etsy.

In other news, I managed to reach 250 likes on the Facebook page! Thanks everyone! In celebration I'm going a giveaway, so make sure to check that out...

This is a little bit of a spam post, but I so rarely do them I hope you'll let me off!

I'm trying to reach 250 fans on my Facebook page and when I do I'm going to do another giveaway. Everyone who likes the page will have a chance to win something and winners will be picked at random. Prises will be a few different things I've made... Ooooooo!

I use the Facebook page to post about new blog posts, sometimes work in progress, other cool art and stuff that I find, art I'm selling and promotions and discounts for my shops.

Thanks for taking the time to have a look and good luck in the giveaway!

New mixed media painting. This one is of a street in Greenwich, London, from a photo I took a couple of years ago. Went for that murky rainy grungy look I usually go for... It portrays London how it really is - beautiful, but... well, pretty dirty and run down. But that's kinda what makes it special, with the usual miss-match of architecture from different periods and styles, being used for purposes for which they were never intended.

Mixed papers, gel mediums, acrylic, watercolor and ink on watercolour paper. Prints shall be available soon.

Sketches from the V&A yesterday. None of them are very good. I'm rather out of practice, it would seem. Dave and I have decided to make it a monthly event to get out and draw together.

A bit random. Just fancied painting a cheetah. Turns out they are really difficult to draw. Gouache and acrylic on paper. Also, I need to start stretching paper before I work on it, because the wrinkles on this were a joke. The tree looks a bit wintery lmao.

I was inspired to start writing down a narrative for the Fenrir dark ride concept today, and an idea for the entrance came to mind.
