Sagittarians... is this you? This is the first illustration in my series 'Signs of the Zodiac' and I have begun with my sign - Sagittarius or The Archer :D Hopefully I will be motivated to have a new illustration for every sign we move into!

Indi The Elephant

I am pretty pleased with my productivity today. I managed to knock off a bit of freelance, get started on Skyla's Christmas stocking and then pump out this little illustration. This is the elephant I spoke about in the last post. I was going to make a pattern out of him but it ended up a picture. I'm not sure if I got the background right, so I will have to look at it for a bit. But for now I will let you be the judge! :D

The Circus is on its way...

Roll up...roll up... The Circus is coming to town. This was so much FUN to do! It was hard to decide what characters to use and which ones I needed to leave out. I did an interesting elephant which I didn't end up using but I might save it for another illustration. I'm also going to try and simplify this illustration and use it in a pattern. What do you think?

Little Indian Girl

Hoorah the end of the week is here! Not that it makes that much of a difference to me, being a stay-at-home Mum. But it does mean my partner is around to help out with the baby - which means more time to be creative, sleep in and enjoy the sunshine :D
So as we enter the weekend I will leave you with a quick illustration I did a couple of weeks back.  It's not perfect and could do with a little bit of tidying but I thought I would post it anyway. Happy weekend!

Babushka Doll Pattern

Hello there... Hope you all had a lovely weekend. We had a lovely hot weekend here in Melbourne - not that I made the most of it. I ventured to the shops and went a little retail crazy, there's so much fabulous stuff out there for Chrissy this year. I didn't even get to finish all the shops because I couldn't carry anymore!
Anyway, here is a pattern I did the other day. It's based on the Babushka print from a few posts back. Hope you like! xo

Little Bo-Peep

Hi Bloggies! What a busy week it's been with Halloween and a public holiday (in Victoria) for the Melbourne Cup. I usually do pretty well with the horses. This year I backed a horse named Illo. I'm always shortening illustration to illo and thought it was a SIGN! Well the horse came second last - BOOoooo!!! I wonder how many other illustrators out there made the same mistake!
Speaking of illos, I'm doing a series of illustrations based on Nursery Rhymes & Fairytales. Yesterday I worked on 'Little Bo-Peep' and at the moment I'm working on 'Jack & Jill'. I am so enthralled with this current project - more to come soon! xx
