Something A Little Different...

A picture I've just finished for a little girl's bedroom. I hope she likes it; especially as it is a picture of her! 

After drawing and drawing this picture it just seemed to work in this style. Most important was the hat and the little cloth the fairy is holding. I took the design from the picture of the original cloth I was sent and used it on the fairy's clothes.

Mermaid Day

It's the lovely @Jabberworks (Sarah McIntyre) birthday and so here's a mermaid for her.

If you've not discovered her books I strongly urge you to go find them in your local book shop and buy them. They're awesome!

A Happy Day

From my sketchbook: Unless you've been hiding under a rock, and even then I'd be impressed if you hadn't heard the news, a new prince was born yesterday. Today the world got its first glimpse of the royal baby and I'm sure he waved! 

Whatever your thoughts on royalty, becoming a parent and bringing a new baby into the world should be a joyous occasion. It feels like the UK has latched onto this joy with tightly gripped hands. 

Wishing everyone a bit of joy,

Teri

Just a Girl

Chickpea is definitely looking forward to the summer.

Doug the Dog

From my sketchbook: This is Doug the Dog. He lives on a pirate ship. Doug doesn't have to stick his head out of a window; he can just sit on deck to enjoy the sea breeze.

The All-Too-Often Spotted Nottle

Ahh the terrible twos. I love my Chickpea with all my heart. Even when she is being a Fink Nottle.

Ballerina Guinea Pig

From my sketchbook: The guinea pig started with a post someone made about their pet (thanks Leon) but the ballet dancing bit? That came from my own madness.

Favourite Film

From my sketchbook: Currently there is a film that Chickpea is asking for and happily watching over and over again. It makes her laugh every time.

Any guesses? Oh and no, it's not Star Wars (even though she loves that film)!
