These were a lot of fun to develop! This started as a page of very quick sketches done over the course of a day at work during periods of rendering.

Carla the Witch

Original digital version, followed below by (iPhone, apologies!) photos of the canvas print.

Well I would never usually refer to my best friend as a witch, but in this case she really is! This was said friend's birthday gift from me after finding out another of her friends had already got her tickets to the Harry Potter studio tour (my original present); so I thought I'd go for something no one else could get! This was done at a massive resolution which I had printed onto canvas, which was my first canvas print. I think I was just as excited to see the result, luckily it came out really well!

There's not much more to say about this one other than Carla is a massive Harry Potter fan and an even bigger fan of geese and waterfowl (, I don't get it either) Thankfully she appeared to be very happy with it :)

Wenlock Pole Vaulting

Here's Wenlock, one of the London 2012 mascots having a go at pole vaulting! If you'd like to know more about Wenlock and Mandeville; their wikipedia page can be found here:

As many of you who follow me on Twitter, or who are friends with me on Facebook, will know; I am absolutely and emphatically loving the London 2012 Olympic games! I have been excited for the Olympics to arrive in my home city for a while but I could never foresee how utterly engrossed I'd become in them and the amazing, indescribable atmosphere it has bought to London. I am lucky enough to have been to the equestrian show jumping (where the GB team went on to win gold the next day), cycling track finals (where Team GB won two golds and a silver!) and the athletics in the Olympic stadium last night. It all ends tomorrow with the closing ceremony and even though I'm very excited for the Paralympic games too, I will be so sad to see this incredible event end an leave our country. 

The other side of this means I have had almost no time to myself to draw over the last two weeks, but I'm more than going to make up for it once everything quieten's down here!
