Lockdown – Day 6

Other than spending an hour in a queue just to get IN to Checkers today (went shopping for everyone) and making pizza (boringly in the oven) today was uneventful so I decided to look through my draft posts for something entertaining and found this “50 Questions you have probably never answered before” list. Before we…

The adventures of August and Tiny Hoof

It’s no secret that Fysh has never been very artistic, sure he’d scribble and occasionally he’d paint something but in general he didn’t seem to have much of a concept for it or even an actual interest in it and then this past week he turns around and starts his own comic series. BOOM. Just…

8 weeks of Charlie already! 

I completely forgot to post the 8 week update. Can you believe it. 8 weeks of an illustration a day. I sure as fuck can’t hahaha. Longest ever I’ve stuck to something like this. It’s been trying here and there. Some days I have absolutely no drive to draw and other days no matter what…

4 weeks down. 48 to go

Last year I got a bee in my bonnet and during a manic episode somehow decided that a 365 project would be a fantastic idea.  I was going to do a drawing every day for the year. At first the idea was to have a theme for the week and do each day as a…

#ayearinmysketchbook

I mentioned vaguely that I’m going to be attempting a 365 project in 2017. It’s two days to go and I’m starting to wonder if I’m setting myself up for failure. Either way, I’m obviously going to try my absolute best NOT to fail. I’ll be doing a mix of art styles for the project…

I’m officially on Patreon!

So in 2017 I’ll be attempting my very first 365 project and to help make it happen I was going to do a crowd funding thing but then thought perhaps Patreon was a better idea because long term I’d also like to exhibit the pieces from the project and also finish the book that is…

YAY! free tags

Just a quick pop in… I made some free printable gift tags for my moms newsletter and thought I’d share them with you because as much as I completely adore this season we are sadly snow free because it’s summer here and thus snowmen and pretty frosted snowflakes are really inappropriate on our tags so…

Books make me happy 

Yesterday was a pretty decent day considering the last few we’ve had. I paid my car thanks to some help and I even managed to do a small grocery shop so that was a total win. We’ll still need to make sure the eskom bill gets covered but at least I have until next week before…

a giveaway for book lovers

So I’ve been toying with the idea of running a giveaway on my book blog to motivate you to invite your friends who like books to join up to be reviewers because the more reviewers we have the more books we get from authors and I am not a patient person haha. Then Mel and I decided…

did you know?

Are you aware that I draw? Am sure you know that already if you follow me on any or all of my social media pages (sadness if you don’t!). Well I thought I’d put two things out there for you… 1. You can buy any of the 3 prints I have over on Vin d’Easel…
