Recently I have really been getting into making things out of clay, mostly for myself or friends. I was thinking of starting up my own Etsy store, mostly so I could just fund the habit really, to buy clay and bits and pieces.  I can't wait to make some more monster and dinosaur key rings and chains. I love monsters. :D In case you can't tell... I will be making owls of course too....

Here are my little angry bird (soon to be attached to keyrings) figurines. These were made for family and friends who are a bit obsessed and thought they might like a little key chain. :D

I haven't given up on my 30 days of drawing challenge either. Just having a little break, while I focus on other things. :)

6. Whats in Your Bag?: 30 day drawing challenge

The above image is my bag contents which include:

  • keys
  • headphones
  • lucas pawpaw ointment
  • extra gum
  • scrunched up receipt
  • paper note
  • 5 pens
  • tissues
  • 2 lip glosses
  • owl purse 
  • regular purse

So nothing too exciting, but it was fun for a 20
minute quick sketch!


Eckersley's Christmas competition

This isn't part of my 30 day drawing challenge. I did it for the Eckersley's Christmas competition which is running in Australia at the moment.

So far, everything that has been submitted is quite decorative, so I decided to submit something a bit quirky and funny. Who doesn't want a gangsta Santa delivering their presents? He'd probably sell the presents so he can put hydraulics on his sled.

I hope you found it funny.

5. Childhood Memory: 30 Day Drawing Challenge

This is my latest drawing for the challenge. When I was little, I spent a lot of time at the beach and collected many shells. For the challenge I decided to draw some of the shells I collected, to illustrate my fond memories of the beach.

I am really loving watercolour paints.

4. A Monster: 30 Day Drawing Challenge

I decided to draw a monsta-saur! A combination of a monster and a dinosaur. I've drawn SO many monsters lately in my children's book, I decided to take a different angle with this guy and draw an 'Xray' type of drawing, showing what goes on inside a monsters body!!

And yes... There is an elephant in there, didn't you know a monsters diet is mostly elephant??
