Tuesday Zoo!

I'm pleased to announce the opening of the artist challenge blog, Tuesday Zoo!  It's two illustrators going head to head on a weekly challenge- one illustrator being yours truly, the other being the most talented illustrator Robin Kaplan ( ).  

Every Tuesday, we will each illustrate an interpretation of that week's 'odd, weird, fantastic and occasionally made up creature'.  Have a look here

This Tuesday- An emergency clockwork mouse!

Art Show Preview: Splish-Splash

So a bit back, I was invited to contribute a piece of art for Apocalypse Tattoo's Beer Coaster Art Show.  It's being held to raise funds for the Precious Life Animal Sanctuary, so I jumped at the chance.  The beer coaster part is referring to the size you're supposed to be working at- roughly less than four inches square!  It was a bit of an 'what on earth do I do for this??' moment to be sure!

So I went with an awful/cute type of painting- seemed appropriate for a show sponsored by Apocalypse Tattoo!

The preparatory linework- painting on this small a scale is difficult, you really have to pare down the detail so that you don't have to squint to figure out what's going on.

Chaos and Yarn

Cat: 1, Just-finished-handknit-sweater: 0.  Probably every cat-owning knitter's worst nightmare!
