This week I have been printing cards for the Etsy Christmas pop-up in Sydney. It was also a friend's first wedding anniversary recently and as the traditional gift for a first anniversary is paper, I decided to use one of the designs from my cards and alter it to make print that could be framed. The print is of two geometric hearts printed in copper and is part of a limited edition of 10 prints. I have listed the rest of the prints in my Etsy store if you would like one for yourself or somebody special. Happy Friday everyone :)
In light of my recent tweet to post more regularly I thought that I had better stop thinking about it and actually post something! I haven't been drawing as much as I would like lately and keep promising myself that I will but before i know it my days seem to be gobbled up with assignments, appointments and various other distractions. So I dug through my archives and came across these little illustrations, I drew them for a possible magazine feature that never eventuated. I thought that they were too pretty not to see the light of day so here they are. And here's hoping I manage to put pencil to paper more often! :)
Gosh! It feels like I haven't posted anything in ages. With family in town and university starting again I have been struggling to settle into a routine. And since I completed 52 Fridays I haven't felt much of an urge to pick up a pencil—except for the illustration above. A good friend of mine celebrated 5 years of marriage recently and she asked me to draw a little portrait of her and her husband. Happy anniversary you two! Perhaps this could be the start of a new project? Portraits maybe? Monthly mugshots?
