the fashion story


yes, a few more
the originals for these have just been submitted for assessment at college, and i have some pictures i will post soon of them displayed. i was actually surprised that my teacher liked them, i didnt think they would be all high and sophisocated enough, because they are illustrations, but they were! yay!! we will just see what the marks tell..


if you are interested please check out my shop and buy handmade!

i took the pledge, did you?

what a weekend!

i had such a great weekend! my boyfriend (foreshore dynamic) bought me two tickets to see josh pyke for our two years together for sat night, and i had already bought tickets to see ben kweller for friday night. so we had a wonderful time seeing and listing to wonderful music. I had seen ben kweller live before, and even though i still loved it, i think i preferred josh pyke because it was so new and amazing!





in other news, i just posted the beginnings of a new series over in my shop so if you enjoy, why not check it out here!


my work at 696!

the wonderful little shop in Melbourne, 696 have just received my originals and prints for sale in their store!!! I am so excited to have my work available somewhere other than online, just so people can see them in the flesh. And there is an exhibition coming up soon which i think my work will be in.

So if you live in Melbourne, check it out!!



the last for the moment. i think i want to keep going with this, maybe go hunting for some vintage fabrics and try and incorporate them into and other series. i want to see what i can do with the pencil, and what i can combine.

anyway. this one is available in the shop

introducing my brand new series!
shes not wallflower

and here is lily


i have been working on this series for a few weeks now and am finally ready to share! there are currently four works at this stage, i might be creating a few more, but at this stage i will upload these over the next few days.

the idea came from a beauitful piece of fabric i found, and my want to include that with a drawing. i also wanted to take my drawings a bit further, trying new things, new techniques, etc etc.

i used reference photos from my boyfriends clothing label photos foreshore dynamic which i urge you to check out!

there are prints available and they will slowly be added to my shop so if you are interested, keep your eye out

i would love to hear your thoughts, as im trying to develop as an artist and there are so many wonderful people out there that i would love to hear some opinions!!!

i am excited to have organised a new print! its of a recent illustration what you're worth and i think its worth a look over at my shop

there are even two sizes available!!! :)


and the rest!!!



the rest are still available over at my shop


in other news i have been working a fair bit lately on a new project, trying to focus more on improving my drawing skills as well as introducing digital elements in to a work. when i am happy with them i shall show all soon!!!!

more swiming?


another.
available
here


I have been working very hard and been very busy
these past few days
so lots of new images
will soon surface.
:)

swim in suits



i was inspired a few days ago to create some little ink and watercolour works

there are five in totally, and i will be slowly making them available in my etsy shop

if you are interested they are only $25 US and for an original drawing, i think thats rather good :D :D

stay tuned for the others


I recently orders some fine art prints of one of my illustrations. They came out rather nicely and so they are on offer for sale at my shop

They have been printed professionally onto fine art paper and would be a lovely addition to your illustrationish collection. Or whatever. So please. Have a look!!


she is finally framed and up on my wall!
this is a beautiful original drawing and watercolour from one of my favourite artists catherine campbell a.k.a my folk lover. I bought this a few weeks ago because i just fell in love with it the moment i saw it!

This will be the first of many for my collection of originals and prints, I have a print from kjs design on its way to my wall too!!!

Go check out her shop, you will love it!

a day of illustrations



todays day of drawing resulting in these two illustrations. after spending much time in the internet artistic community i have been inspired and influenced to tried out different methods and approaches. i love working with graphite and watercolour and have in the past, but tried to work in a more "illustratie" way. full bodies. etc.

I am going to submit these to my redbubble account where you can check them out with my other drawings and buy cards and prints.

however, for those looking, do you think you would be interested in some fine art prints that would be signed as well. the redbubble organises all the printing and things for me so they are not actually signed and i wont actually see them. I am getting some fine art prints made at the moment of some other drawings and if they turn out nice would people be interested in these as well.

I would also sometime like to sell the originals... anyone interested?

thanks everyone! :D

the fishiest treasury


fellow etsian, ccvalenzo was kind enough to feature me in this lovely fishy treasury!!! this doesn't happen to me often so its very exciting for me.
