May Your Trails Be Crooked – Pop Up Card

Mountain pop up inside a bought card. Made for a friend.

With quote “May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.” Edward Abbey.

Ink and watercolour. July 2016

Watermark or Nothing

You’re no-one without a watermark.

I couldn’t get to sleep after an online incident so I made this little digital drawing. You carefully place your work online with a description, medium, tags, ownership. Then it gets copied, saved, Pinned, shared, saved, cropped, altered and orphaned. You find it scattered across social media, blogs and web sites.

Maybe it’s casual, careless, carefree or ignorant use of someone else’s work. But considering you liked it enough to use it, if/when the artist says “hey that’s my work” try to be polite at least. Maybe curious, maybe friendly, maybe a little out of sorts – but don’t be a jerk about it.

Started a new painting with a baby theme and here’s a peek at the drawing for the piece.

It’s going to be in acrylic on box canvas 30cm square and will be a colourful affair as usual.

Who Is That? – Drawing

This guy just appeared in my sketchbook. Who is that?

Excuse the crinkly paper. Or is that him?

Bow Tie Cat – Drawing

My neighbour’s cat Wilbur has taken to wearing bow ties. I saw him in a snazzy polka dot number so just had to draw him.
