Advent 2015: Day 23

It's so nearly Christmas, which is
really rather exciting. I've decided
to go a little bit flamboyant today,
because Christmas should be nothing
if not at least a little bit camp!

Hello and Merry 22nd!
Today we have a squid and
and octopus battling it out

Advent 2015: Day 10

I love dogs. 
I admire their enthusiasm, and every
dog I've had has loved Christmas.
So I thought it made sense to put one
in this years calendar.

Advent 2015: Day 6

Hurrah tis Day 6 of the A Little Bit Askew

most flattering portrait of the Queen,
hope I don't get sent to the Tower.

Just a reminder that I'm collecting for the
ME Association - if you are enjoying the
advent this year I'd be super appreciative
of any pennies you could throw this way.

Eight Legged Piñatas!

Hello all!
This week I hosted a Halloween
Spider Piñata workshop at Caoba,
Edinburgh (the lovely little shop I
have the pleasure of working in.) 

It went really well, everyone had a
great time, even the arachnophobes.
Here are some pictures along with
the finished article; Claude. 

Hello Claude!

Instructions on how to make
a Claude can be found here.

Thou Shalt Have A Fishy

endeavours coming to fruition shortly.
So watch this space and I'll keep you posted.

A Little Bit of Whimsy

Have been playing around with some
whimsical notions. Its mostly nonsense
but its brightly coloured nonsense 
featuring endearing animals.

Monday, 23 March 2015

Hello again!

Hello humans! It's been quite a while
since I posted anything, terribly sorry
about that! Things in my life have been
a little up in the air of late. I recently
moved back to the lovely city of
Edinburgh and have been looking for
work and creative opportunities. Here
are just a few of the things I have made/
painted/ drawn/ doodled since I last
posted on here. Hope you like them!

These are some more recent paintings.
The fish theme appears to continue 
unabated. I am hoping to get some oil
pieces done in the near future.

…and these are a few illustrations, including
my valentines card design for this year.

Hope you've enjoyed this wee inside into
my current, quite chaotic and very forgetful
psyche. I'm going to try and post things more
regularly from now on, so watch this space.

Christmas Advent 2014

Hello there! Though a little late, 
the festive season being well and
truly over - here is my collection
of advent illustrations from
Christmas last year. I also made
these into an actual flip page advent
calendar which took SO LONG to 
print and was a bit of a nightmare.
But it was all worth it in the end 
because they looked lovely and
were very popular.

I'm a freelance illustrator + artworker based in Edinburgh. I like to make funny, quirky and downright weird things.
