Hi! Here’s a preview of some new originals that I’ll be listing in the shop in a few weeks’ time – some ink and graphite drawings, collages, watercolours and mixed media pictures. My friends Mark and Stevie bought me a beautiful set of Sennelier watercolours in a gorgeous wooden chest for Christmas and I love them so much! I’ve been feeling very inspired lately, and thought perhaps I’d do a blog post this week that’s shameless art supply porn. I love taking a peek at other people’s tools and materials, so thought I’d share some of my favourites. By the way, I discovered the best pencil sharpener in the whole world (do pencil sharpeners excite you as much as they do me?) that sharpens white charcoal pencils without breaking – I will share the details.
I’ve been doing some quirky portraits – I like faces with character. I also decided to do some portraits of toys because there’s not a time in your life when you love a lump of plastic with as much passion, or imbue it with as much personality as when you’re a kid and have a favourite toy. Expect more creepy dollies and chubby-cheeked animals!
