plush treasury...

...one of my old makes, the raincloud plush/mobile has been featured in an etsy treasury which was curated by AestheticExposure which is very nice and again the raincloud was only added to the online shop yesterday evening. some people have super fast eyes. this week in the evenings after the day job, i have been making the small illustrated badges, packing up printed cards and books. i have some print plans to put into action to make use of some unused supplies and half-finished things. hoping this may be towards the end of the week. taking one day at a time as my brain needs to slow down and rest.

...in this lovely etsy treasury put together by aclementina which is very nice considering i only updated the etsy shop last night. i thought i would attempt the online shops again and sooner than planned with some of the nicer photos i have taken. proper photos of work, prints and sketchbooks will soon be done by a friend of mine once some of the work has been made back up. it is encouraging to know that people are looking at my work and like it enough to feature it and buy it as i am currently trying to make some major decisions about what to do. sometimes i think it is best to just wander but maybe a planned path will be the way?

links to either one of my online shops can be found in the sidebar to the right - etsy or folksy - give them a click and magic links will take you there.

...in the sky that looks like it is going to rain, is a little star. screen-printed not so long back with my own fair hands using the home printing equipment. these were first released at the Saltaire Arts Trail and i am in the middle of printing the second batch with my new small squeegees. these will soon be on etsy in the update once me and the camera have a good enough period of time with natural light. originally, i thought i had a drawing to share this evening but turns out what i drew was rubbish on second sight. this weekend i will be visiting a friend and seeing the Mr Dr in Stoke and will be taking the sketchbook so i am hoping a change of scenery will do my brain wonders.

Huge thank you to all who visited my stall in Saltaire and Leeds these past two weekends. It is very much appreciated and the print funds are growing. I am deciding what is best to do with my time and am now considering joining a nearby print studio. These funds will help go towards membership, studio hours and possible supplies.
