Christmas Market booked!

I haven’t been blogging much lately but I have been trying to get some drawing in, and even if I haven’t had much free time to get things down on paper, my head is still full of ideas, so watch this space!

I have been thinking ahead to Christmas and have booked a table at the Makers Market on the 29th of November in Morningside. More details…and a few new designs …closer to the time!

Badges and Markets

After a week of sunny holidays in the Hebrides, I thought it was about time to get back to work! I have got some badges printed, including a new one of the Squirrels in Love! These badges went down well at the last market I did in December, so I am going to be attending another market, where the badges, as well as all the prints and cards will be available. I will be at the Morningside Makers Market  on Saturday 3rd August from 11am – 4pm, sharing a stall with the very talented Ryan McEwan Photography who has loads of cool cards and prints of everything from Edinburgh to cute ducklings and the New York skyline!

Come along and say hello!

Illustrating Edinburgh

I have finally finished three new pictures, and all of them feature Edinburgh! The first is “The Daily Grind” which is the most detailed and took me  AGES to finish as it is made up of so many individual animals, plants and birds. If you live here in Edinburgh you may recognise the cycle path, along which you can see all sorts of animals, and I imagine they see all sorts of people too!

The other two compositions are combinations of photographs I took and illustrations, this is new to me, but I like the effect, and hope to do more like these.

These pictures are now available to buy as cards or prints in my etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/HimalayanPrincess

New stuff!

I have been working on a couple of designs lately, one the previously mentioned Cat and Camel, and another one called Squirrels Find Love. The latter features a pair of cutie pie red squirrels who have jumped up a tree to escape the crowds and found…each other! What else could a squirrel want?
These are both available to buy as mounted prints and cards in my shop

Cat and Camel in a desert adventure!

The festive season is over and it’s time to start thinking about ….desert adventures! This cute duo of cat and camel are living it up in the dunes, surrounded by bright fireflies, and secure in the knowledge they have a cosy and bright tent to sleep in!

I hope to do a trip to the printers soon and get this printed out as a card, but first I have to finish my other “in-progress” designs – think cute squirrels with extra fluffy ears!

Busy, busy, busy!

Well it’s less than two weeks to go until the Arts Market at Out of the Blue Drill hall, and I have finally started to get organised! I spent the day mounting prints to sell, and getting the greetings cards looking presentable in their bags. I even managed to put together a flat-packed card holder! I have just put 3 new Christmas card designs up for sale in my cards and prints shop too – we have ice skating bunnies, living room fishing, a sweet seal and polar bear duo! Check them out!
