Day 27 and 28!

I know I have only made small changes to this but I have become uber OCD of late, and it's funny how small changes can take a lot longer than you think, especially on a Mercury Retrograde...!
I have also been continuing my Winter Queen... not really enough to show yet but soon.....

Day 26

Yesterday I started a new piece called... 'Tax is EVIL Ouch Ouch Agh!'... however this was all in my head and came out as more of a scream, or growl....
Ahem, but really I started a Winter Snow Queen piece to accompany the Autumn Queen. See my website here.
Not enough to really show you.. though I may upload a bit soon.
I am starting a new beginners Art Course next week, which I have been organising and looking forwards to also. So apologies that nothing is posted here except something abstract I did recentl. There has been art done.. I promise!

Day 19... Randomity!

Here we have what I thought might be a better scanned copy of my snow leopard sketch, but now I come to think of it, I'm not so sure! Alas, I miss my epson... product placement I know, but since that little scanner died, I've known no resolution like it! Anyhow... Also scanned in is the majority of an old painting I did called 'Rose Red' and today's wee sketch, entitled 'Evil Gordon Planning to take over THE WORLD' TM...
Thank you and goodnight!

Day 18 Ideas and Sketches!

This has been a very busy worky week, oh for the days when I can paint all day! Anyhow, here are a couple of sketches. Older Man on tube and my Starling darling watching Planet earth - she is like me... loves her animal documentaries! I have over the last 2 days also been sketching ideas for Ivy Paige's logo, which I'll show in its more finished stage if Ivy is happy with it.
Random fact... was asked to be on this years Big Brother, how funny! It's a 'no' by the way...

Day 16 - Ganesh!

Even though I may well tweak him still (!), this is Ganesh pretty much finished! This is still a rough picture of the final piece. Will have him scanned in to his full glory very soon.
He is 24"X24" Acrylic on Canvas, and now... FOR SALE! All enquiries please e mail

Day 12 - Oopsy!

Agh! I didn't upload anything yesterday. Slap my wrists! I assure you, I did do some work, but I have been doing a lot on Psychic TV this week and I realised I (as usual) have not been looking after the flat! Well I got on with the lovely Ganesh, he is almost finished. Should take an hour or so more I think! Will put a proper pic of Ganesh up when he is done. :)

Day 11

The first sketch is of Gordon, while he was watching Tom Hanks befriend a ball called Wilson, in Castaway. The second is a very basic sketch of the Greek Goddess Artemis.

Day 10 - Sam Neil in Starbucks.

O Mr Neil, why did you have to keep moving and get up when I was trying to draw you???

Day 9 - Life on the Underground!

Apologies ... posted a day late as was too tired after arriving back from the pub last night and up early this morn!
Sketching on the tube isn't easy. Londoners will do almost anything to avoid interaction with fellow tube goers, so sketching on the tube is always a joy as everyone is so on edge. But there is something undoubtedly nice about drawing someone when they don't notice and you catch them in a different light. Someone in their own world listening to their i pod, reading a book, or falling asleep. You start to wonder about their lives as you draw contours of eyes. You pay attention to details you would never even have noticed. That's if they sit still long enough.

Day 8 Burlesquey Goodness!

Been working on Psychic a lot past couple of days, so not much time to create much, yet many ideas have been had and plans discussed! Through delusional tiredness today, I met up with the burlesque performer Ivy Paige and we hatched a few plans. Very exciting indeed. After trying to set up my new Psychic website (why do I even try this close to mercury retrograde in Aquarius??!!) I sat down with some sketchy ideas. Top one is Ivy. Hopefully much more to show tomorrow!
Night ...

Day 7 Posted a day late!


I'm late! I'm late! I'm terribly late!
Apologies... These little sketches (I did warn you they wouldn't all be masterpieces!) were done yesterday at work (ahem), but as I got in from work at 2.30am, I really didn't feel like doing anything other than sleeeeeeeping, so here they are today. Today's blog will follow!
Cobby, Jemma Buckley one of our lovely presenters and Enchantment from the Option 0 psychic team are all showed above in sketchy form!
