No.13 Fixed gear bikes seem to be getting increasingly popular. Driving out of London, down Hackney Rd, a few shops have opened. I'm drawn to the amazing bright colours they come in and the fact that they can be bespoke to your requirements (for a price). Obviously, how practical they are, is a minor detail! I started this illustration feeling bright. Wheels are a bit wonkey, but combined with the floor, the whole thing just pops. I should do a few of these, with a view to selling them.

No.12 The inspiration for this drawing came from my good friend Lucy. When she came to stay last weekend she was wearing a lovely, delicate, gold necklace. On it was a little gold origami swan. Loved the idea so much, thought it would work well as a rabbit (or hare, as the ears are rather long!)

No.6 This sketch & watercolour started off as a nude with short hair looking in the opposite direction. Lots of rubbing out & repositioning I was happy with her pose. No reference was used for this, just out of my head. It wasn't intentional for her to look Hispanic. But with those big eyes and dark hair that is how she ended up. I decided to clothe her because there is a gorgeous top I pinned ages ago on Pinterest and wanted to get that in somewhere.
