Weekly round up 25th August 2014

It's been another busy week but for different reasons. My husband had the week off so we've been out and about. From accidental strawberry picking, visiting the British Museum (with Chickpea stalking through the place with a magnifying glass), visiting family, Wisley Gardens with friends and even the dreaded Ikea! 

It's been very busy indeed. So here's a few bits from my sketchbook:

New school uniform:

Wisley Gardens (drawn while 3 children were also entertaining me!):

Daily Doodle (@Daily__Doodle on Twitter) of Veruca Salt:

Daily Doodle of Charlie Bucket that I didn't get the chance to finish:

A snapshot of what it's like to have a 4 year old for 30 minutes:


Thanks for looking at my blog!

Have a great week,

Round up 18th August 2014

I haven't written in my blog for a couple of weeks but I have been drawing. 

The summer holidays are racing by and Chickpea starts school soon. We have been out and about a lot which has been excellent fun but Chickpea has been missing her friends lots. Especially as our lovely neighbours (Hi Doug and Matthew) have been away. I'd forgotten that summer holiday feeling.

There are a lot of drawings from my sketchbook so I've grouped them together.

Daily Doodle topics (@Daily__Doodle):
Mrs Tiggywinkle

Jemima Puddleduck

Squirrel Nutkin

Cat - death to all wool!

Genie - in tribute to Robin Williams

Grumpy Mouse

Some kind of hairy cat monster 

Half dragon, half ogre

An ogre

Watching TV:
Marian - Indiana Jones

Back to the Future - excellent clothes!

Sarah & Duck - brilliant kid's TV programme and for some reason I drew BatDuck.

Things from my head:
Party girl

Fat bottomed pugs... There was a lot of pug drawing this last week. 

For some reason Annie popped in my head.

A bear girl

Some Twitter people:

Elissa Elwick (@ElissaElwick)

Sarah McIntyre (@Jabberworks) who is an illustrator/comics hero of mine. She has the best hats!

Lots going on. Busy, busy!

Thanks for looking at my blog.

Weekly round up - 4th August 2014

A busy week again. It's hard to work during the school holidays. Hard but not entirely impossible!

I'm working on updating my portfolio again. Here is what's been going on in my sketchbook this week:

Chickpea loves blowing dandelions. If only they'd stop landing in my garden!

I've been drawing lots of cats this week.

Chickpea has been very noisy this week (and every week). Always turned up to 11.

An idea for a little monster.

Arrrr! Pirate Ted - I have a small idea for a story about him. 

Finally Chickpea has learned to whistle. Which is lovely. If only she wouldn't whistle ALL the time!

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog. Have a good week,
