Had some fun doing a couple of pin-ups last week. It reminded me how much I used to love drawing in this style.

Using watercolour and parker ink has become so much a part of my nature that delving into chalk pastels has been like a breath of fresh air. It feels good to be using brighter colours of late and to step away from the dark blue, at least for a time.
Now that Father's Day has passed, I can show you a little commission. Just to avert any confusion, the top drawing is the final piece even though the one underneath has it's merits.
Because I always enjoying seeing other people's process, here are a few sketches showing part of the evolution for this image.

I wonder.... can people tell the difference between the cats through my sketches or does it just look like I keep drawing the same cat? Please let me know, I'm interested in finding out.
Follow the links to other cat sketches:

Cat sketch 5
You should be able to tell which cat is meant to be in the drawing from the blog posts. I am shocked to ssee so many of Jack and so few of Tilly. o.O

I haven't been up to very much this week other than struggling with a drawing, a little commission. I'll be more than happy to share it with you all once it has been completed. Meanwhile, here's a look at how to create a stand for all those hand made cards laying about when there is no money with which to acquire one. I don't have specific measurements, I simply winged it. I am lucky enough to have two cats that eat too much and parents that buy massive boxed of food for them. The cardboard boxed were perfect for this little project along with a hot glue gun, a craft knife, and some decorating sticky paper.
A secret hidden compartment
And the final touches.
The little sign is made out of a piece of card coated in PVA and sand.

I've been making some lovely hand made cards again at last. They will be available to buy in our church soon enough, but anyone wants any and can't reach them then please contact me. I'll be selling them for £2 each plus shipping.
