At the beginning of the year I started a new challenge - Character Design, and thought I would make use of materials I have close by me - my dog Chester.
At the end of 2017 I signed up for another 5 months of Art Bootcamp and this started on Monday this week... the first mini assignment is to draw the contents of my handbag - oh dear, there is rather a lot in my bag. (Tip to me: empty my handbag from time to time!).
Oh, and of course, there is the Twitter challenge - Animal Alphabets which is currently focusing on Horror Stories. I love seeing everyone's art - so, if you are interested, pop over to Twitter or Instagram and have a peek at all the other amazing artists work - the diversity of styles and techniques is amazing.
They say diversity is the spice of life, well I must be living this to the full - I have also found time, and I don't know how, to create a quilted alphabet letter for Hitchin Art Hub, a group of local artists whom I have connected with on Facebook.
Another reason for drawing is a pitch to do another book - about Foxes (my sister will love this one!) - I'll keep you updated on how this goes.
Here are a few of my January art pieces. A mixed bag really :)
