Touch my hand and make me shudder


Another new ink and pen illustration from my portfolio of work that I've been building up. I have so many different things that I am working towards at the moment, It's a bit overwhelming, daunting and exciting at the same time. I go through most of those feelings on a day to day basis. I'm working on getting christmas commissions in time to actually do them. I've got some pet portraits to do which I'm looking forward to. Cute pooches! I've also decided to make the most of people that pass through to the staff room at work on a day to day basis and made a poster last night and attached my business cards to it so they can rip them off, Who knows, it may work.

I'm feeling pretty chuffed with myself (and skint) I've nearly finished my christmas shopping, which is frankly shocking. I usually start Decemeber. Don't get me wrong I'm not a last minute loser but I'm not usually this organised! I also treated myself to a new book, a festive read and The Craft Inc Business Planner to help me sort out another of my ventures really, my illustrated jewellery and bespoke items. So that and working, drawing and making new creations will keep me entertained whilst having nothing in my purse. Oh and Ebay (check out my items, pretty lace topshop cutaway dress to name a few!) and car boot sales of which I'm doing one tomorrow, not looking forward to waking up early though...

Wow, beautiful illustration. Really nice shape to the body and lovely soft colours.

I like the thought of doing comission work myself but I find it so daunting, the whole business side of it - I'm rubbish with money and if anything went wrong I'd be in a pickle. But like you say it's a fantastic way of building up a portfolio. You're going to do well!

Such a beautiful illustration, I love pen and ink, they're my favourites! Can't believe you've got all of your christmas shopping done, I don't think I'd ever be able to be that organized!
