Illustration Friday: Octopus


Why why why did I think it would be a good idea to check the Illustration Friday topic last thing on a Thursday night? I wasn’t planning on doing one at all – but then I saw that the topic was Octopus. How could I resist that? I didn’t have much time of course so this is just a quick tentacle study, but it’s something.


Illustration Friday: Shadow



Based on the book ‘A Tale For the time Being’ by Ruth Ozeki, which I’ve just finished reading and which has made me want to become a Buddhist nun when I grow up.

In it a Hello Kitty lunchbox washes up on the shore of a Canadian island, where it is found by Ruth, a writer – inside is the journal of a 16 year old Japanese schoolgirl, written a decade earlier. I guess it’s a book about the way the written word transcends time.

Anyway I wanted to draw a picture based on it, so I’ve shoehorned it in to this week’s Illustration Friday topic!

Illustration Friday: ‘Tail’ and Society 6

The sparrow got bored of being the dowdiest bird in the garden, so it came up with a crafty solution!


I’ve made this and a few other prints available to buy as prints on my Society 6 shop, here: I think I’ve had an account there for a long time, but I got a bit confused and gave up on it. Now I’m having another go! Here are some of the other items available to order, I don’t think I’ve posted them here before:


Tea Party



That’s about it for now – I’ll keep adding pictures there as I do them because it’s a pretty low maintenance way of selling prints, even if it doesn’t make me much money. I’m not going to put any of my older pictures on there unless someone requests them as a print, so let me know if there’s anything from the distant past that you want to buy and I’ll make it available!

Illustration Friday: Entangled

EVERYBODY PANIC! A wave of DEADLY spiders has INVADED the UK!! VENOMOUS false widow spiders have KILLED… well, nobody. But they gave a man a nasty BRUISE!!! AAAAARGH!!!!

And they’re making fraudulent benefit claims. Probably.

Meanwhile in Australia:

Just a stupid scribble for Illustration Friday this week, because spider hysteria is amusing me and it kind of fits the theme (but I don’t really have time to do anything better)!
