Thistle, Berry and Heather Pattern

So these past couple of days I've been working on some new pattern ideas- this being one of them. I hope to get at least one more done by the time I have my Cultural Enterprise meeting this week, but everything takes so much time! I am hoping to secure funding so that I can get my patterns and designs printed in bulk and start trying to distribute them.

 I am quite happy with how this one turned out, I think it'll make a nice little mug :-) and I'm hoping the little shops that I'm targeting agree! If that fails, I always have Etsy... Wish me luck!

Pocket Mirrors

I've ordered them now, when I receive them then they'll be avaliable for sale on my Etsy :-) 
They measure 58mm, and will be £3 each.

I haven't updated much here for a while- this is actually because I have been super busy writing a business plan... well... getting there... ish... and more importantly designing some more stuff! I want to expand my Etsy stock (which is basically what my business proposal is about, I want to try and secure some funding so that I can effectively buy more stock and make my shop a bit more successful than it is at the moment...) Over the past while, I've been designing a cat themed, and a thistle and heather themed pattern for fabric and mugs, which I will post on here once completed. I have also been creating designs for pocket mirrors, which are more affordable to me at the moment. Here's an example, but I have plenty more to come!

I did these screen-prints last year. I actually sold out of the ones that I wrapped at my illustration degree show... I really should have wrapped more. However, I do still have a few left over that I HOPE to move (somehow), for the time being, this week's Illustration Friday is on the theme "pet", so I might as well put it up there :-)

I really want to do some more screen printing.

Toucan do it

Illustration Friday-ish! It has triangles in it, I wanted to try a more whimsicalish loose pattern. Needs a bit more work, but we'll see to that in the morning. Good night!

Hedgehog pattern

So, I've been working on a hedgehog pattern for the past couple of days, and here it is! I have quite a few more ideas that I'd like to make a reality, and then HOPEFULLY get a business grant and I'll be able to turn them into some wonderful mugs that HOPEFULLY people will purchase on my Etsy; there's a lot of hopefullys in there. But in all seriousness, I have quite a lot of ideas, and I need to get them all done!

Hedgehog stuff

Trying to get over the election results... On the plus side, it is still hedgehog week!

Illustration Friday- Wiggle Lemur

Here's my second stab. I was going to do this digitally, but felt like I needed some watercolour therapy today.

Illustration Friday- Wriggle

Another little bit of an experiment... I think that I might try and do another IF tomorrow, as this one is a little messy.

L is for

My favourite, I think, is the ring-tailed lemur. I've done a couple of versions here, mainly because I can't quite decide on the eyes, however I think that I prefer the yellow eyes. Maybe I need to play around a little bit more on Illustrator.
