Trying Out A New Shoppy Thingy

Greetings all! How are you all? Fluffy and well, I hope. Today, I was not only wondering where birds sleep at night and if seagulls prefer to grab a snooze while floating on the water but also whether there were any decent (and cheap) alternatives to Etsy. I stumbled upon Big Cartel and decided to give it a try. Happily there is a free version where you can upload 5 items which I have indeed done! So, I shall see how it goes and if it works out, then I shall crowbar open my stingy, empty Scottish purse and try the upgraded version for a little while.

5 Yellow Phonebox Items which I Put Up On Big Cartel Today While Contemplating The Sleeping Habits Of Birds.

Talking of birds and cakes, I have actually finished my latest scribblings and will show it off in the next thrilling blog post…

Inktober 2019 – Day 14 ‘Overgrown’

The inspiration for todays pic was pretty easy. All I had to do was look out of the window to the back garden which is well and truly overgrown! It’s actually very lovely in its wild way and is visited by an abundance of birds, bats, hedgehogs, and probably a whole lot that we’re not aware of!

I really enjoyed doing this one and thought drawing it mainly in sepia would give it a general oldish, neglected feel. I also wanted an excuse to use my Derwent sepia Graphik pens. The rest is done using Derwent Intense pencils (Baked Earth, Bark and Ink Black.)
