Since reaching Twitch Affiliate, I’ve been so happy and wearing lilac/purple this whole week! Including this illustration I’ve been doing on stream which is my Teasona – for those who don’t know, I love a cuppa tea! I also drink it often in my streams, so I only felt it adequate to draw myself with Lavender-like tea leaves chilling (or brewing?) in tea. What I love about drawing my own original artworks is that you can really express how you’re feeling at the time, and it’s always fun to reflect back on!
A good friend of mine (and also dedicated client!) has commissioned me to illustrate another picture to give his lady friend as a birthday present. I was first given this task last year and comparing the 2017 illustration to this year’s one, I am so happy and impressed with how much I have improved not only with my skill, but with my composition, colouring and speed.
Pink Lars from the recent Steven Universe hour special. Lars’ character has always been somewhat irritating to me in the series, but I absolutely loved seeing his moments of vulnerability where he struggled being himself. It just goes to show acceptance starts within and I always love that Steven Universe has these amazing life lessons to teach young children.
I wasn’t expecting Pink Lars to happen! But I absolutely loved it and it has solidified my love for Lars’ character, things are looking up for him.
Hey all! Just updating you to let you know that my commissions are currently closed, this includes the Fivesquid service. I have many commissions to be getting on with already and including children’s books to illustrate. I will update once I am available again soon. 🙂
I have been a real busy body of late! Many requests are coming through from authors to illustrate their books and I have started a new part time job at the Disney Store too. My life is taking a whole new turn and I am very happy at the way it has unfolded. So much has happened to me within a year, it’s unreal but I feel more in control of my happiness especially career-wise. I hope to one day quit my day job and really be a full time artist! The only way is up.
I love the show Steven Universe, but I had not done a Gemsona because I had no clue what gem to choose – until my friend suggested Sunstone to go with her Gemsona; Moonstone. The more I looked up about the gem Sunstone, the more I fell in love with it. And here she is!
Sunstone is an uplifting gem, one that helps to dispel fears and take leadership of yourself. A free spirit!
