Hand made tea cup candles.

I'm selling these for £6 please get in touch if anyone fancies one :)
this idea has been a long time coming, it's just that i was bored at home over christmas and my mum gave me a mother cup as you do and i remebered that i wanted to make these sweet little candles, because its been snowing back home i packed the cup with snow from  my backgarden to get the wax to set in the cup.... very wintery.

At the moment..

so at the moment im working hard on my MA applications and what fun they are :) NOT! I still dont really know if its waht i want to do but im going to apply anyway not that i stand a chance actually getting in to anywhere to do illustration... Anyway i had my last tutorial of 3rd year first term and it went very considering having an asthma attack and having my work analogized i was in a really rather good mood, mary mubbut my tutor really like the heads and some of the illustrations of women sitting down which is great and now over the christmas period iv got to make another book but of the illustrations iv already done foe "when it rains" i have to compositionaly make them appealing :) this is sooo much fun good times. this is some of my tutors work Mary mubutt shes really great :)

New illustration work...watercolours

So these are few new watercolour works for my new book, that i am creating atm for my 3rd year project called 'when it rains' its basically filled with work up from sketches of people i see when i am sat in costa having a coffee on a rainy day, i am also atm doing a set of screen printed images of a few of these drawings so i can put them onto fabric to experiment with a more collage style, abit like charlie and lola, the art in that by lauren childs. Im currently learning how to illustrate books properly with storyboards and layouts stress! when youve done a fine art course for 2 years and your a messy person ha!
