I won a New Blood award :-)

It's only the In Book award (sadly no yellow pencil for me!) But I do believe that I get a nice certificate to go on my wall- which is always great to have! The story was Bucket, retelling my childhood feelings and confusion from a time when I had no say over my own fate. I am really hoping that this helps me live out my dream as an illustrator!

Kitty head pin cushion

I know the bottom isn't very neat, but I realised that I was procrastinating, and rushed a bit. I was originally going to give him a body, but I realised I'd made the head a bit too big, and, well, time...

Hugo sketch

A quickish sketch of one of the cats I saw- I'm planning to do some more stylised drawings, but for now it's a start :-)

Dundee Cat Show

So I went to a cat show today, which was great fun!
Everyone seemed so friendly, and I got up close to breeds that I'd never seen in real life before!
Like this Maine Coon! I held him and he was HUGE, and not even fully mature yet! He is conveniently covering my face, so you shall never see it! 

 They actually show house cats, and not just pedigrees, which I didn't know.

I love this guy's hair, and how it curls around under his body!
I also met this little guy. He was tired, and didn't want to be stroked, but he was beautiful none the less, and let me take some pictures of him!
Look at his beautiful eyes!

This one looked a little bit grumpy! 

You would be too, if you had to watch people stare at you all day!

I love the colourings on this guy!

Hello there!

I'm hoping to draw some of these guys tomorrow!

This little girl is a Maine Coon kitten, and actually bigger than my adult moggie, Gwendolyn.

This little kitten is a Ragdoll- that's the breed that Luke and I are getting in September! I can't wait!

British Shorthair, I do believe!

This guy's name is Danny! So cute! The same as my ex, but more smilie :-) From what I learned, Danny is a fairly new breed of cat, the Asian.

Such big blue eyes!

This guy was super grumpy, and didn't seem to want his picture taken.

So I've been playing a bit too much Ocarina of time recently (shocker confession), and I realised that the 3DS version of the game actually has the added detail of Navi telling the player to "LISTEN"! And take a break, at which point I usually scream at her to go away!
Still, quick PS doodle, as I get back to what I really should be doing- DRAWING! But OOT is just sooo awesome!
