Fave things to draw at the mo are feathers and geometric pattern. This is my first drawing of the two together. It's a work in progress. More to follow as I've just taken delivery of a lino print kit (excited but nervous!) Thinking my designs might be a little too detailed.

My latest project are these little beauties. Loving the current trend of vintage animal illustrations. I bought some cheap deep box frames and painted them. Found a selection of royalty free illustrations and mounted them onto pages of text from an old book and this is the result. I think they work quite well?
I did these and forgot about them. Might try and do them on nicer china. Maybe a cup and saucer. Just simple line drawings of botanical tea/coffee/sugar plants. I used cheap white plates and a Pebeo Porcelain marker. Which you can fire in the oven and they become dishwasher proof. I've found the pens to be a bit unreliable. One minute the ink flows well and the next it's faint. Perhaps it's my technique?! I've read that you can use Sharpie marker pens and fire them. Not sure how well this would work though. Apologies for poor picture quality.
