The Glasgow Review is a great online magazine and is a platform for new artists to show work which "challenges the establishment in literature, art and politics and to offer a radical platform for new writers, thinkers and artists to express their ideas for a more informed and fair world."
Brilliant. My art is there in this edition, go take a browse at www.glasgowreview.co.uk
The above painting is an ink drawing of fabulous cabaret and burlesque performer and friend Ruby Blues. I love the beautiful girls (and guys) of Burlesque and have also done a few portraits of other performers including the beautiful Ivy Paige. All these can be seen on my website.
Why should we break up Our snug and pleasant party? Time was made for slaves, But never for us so hearty.

New Years Eve. For the next 31 Days I shall be challenging myself to create new artworks everyday... there are so many ideas and projects on the go and in my mind, It'll be an interesting journey for me at least!I hope you will enjoy.
Even though I'm not really into celebrating this as the New Year, as a true Aries, I love beginnings and fresh starts and this truly is a time where the world needs some positive changes in attitudes. So lets go...
There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning.

The Autumn Queen - Laura Daligan
Inks and Watercolour on Paper.
'Macabre and witchy, womanly and bizarre. I aim to express emotions as powerful visuals in my work.'
I am an artist and illustrator, living in North London with my lovely man and our two crazy kits Cobweb and Star, they're at that age where they are probably to big to be called 'Kittens' but are too much my babies to be called 'Cats', so we shall have to stick to Kits and Cattens for now!
To view more of my paintings and drawings please go to my website, where you can see a full bio of illustration commissions that I have done, plus loads of finished art work... you know you want to... go on.. just click your mouse over this pretty word...here!
From the 1st of January I shall be doing a 31 Day Art Blog, which I am very excited about! Basically I shall upload the art that I create... everyday. Whether it be sketches, finished and
unfinished paintings, ideas, whatever, this is to get me started in 2009 in the best way I can, by pushing my work as far as can be...daily!
As I do currently have many other a job to do, being a psychic, astrolger, writer and wiccan witch, I shall probably not be able to upload finished pieces everyday, but I shall do my very best as, being a typical Aries, I have a lot of projects on the go! To find out more about my psychic work, or to book a reading please check out my www.laurapsychic.tv
It is, and has always been my dream to be able to paint and draw everyday, and in 2009 I am determined to make it happen!
